Synopsis

Tarzan follows the adventures of an orphaned infant raised by a family of gorillas and ultimately accepted as one of their own. As Tarzan matures into a young man with all the instincts of a jungle animal and the physical characteristics of an athletic superstar, his life changes forever when he finally meets other humans, with whom he feels an immediate and irresistible bond.

Dove Review

Disney has outdone itself in this animation extravaganza. Using new 3D technology, called “Deep Canvas,” animators give you a sense of the characters actually being in the forest, not just in front of a painted background. The story is engaging and the characters enjoyable — especially the comedy team of Terk (Rosie O’Donnell) and Tantor the elephant (Wayne Knight).

Content Description

The amount of violence, both on and off screen was a bit harsh, therefore I do not recommend this movie for preschoolers. If Dove had an (8+) rating, Tarzan would get it.
