THE SEQUEL TO DISNEY’S SPECTACULAR ANIMATED ADVENTURE TARZAN ® II
ALL-NEW FILM PREMIERES ONLY ON DISNEY DVD
Available June 14, 2005
Experience the beginnings of the legend in the all-new movie TARZAN® II, the sequel to Disney’s animated classic “Tarzan®.”
This exciting adventure, from the creators of Disney’s “Tarzan” and approved by creator Edgar Rice Burroughs’s estate, takes place when Tarzan is just a kid “going ape” alongside his good buddies Terk the ape and Tantor the elephant. Phil Collins won an Academy Award® for “Tarzan” (Best Original Song “You’ll Be In My Heart” 1999) and he delivers two powerful, original songs to this new sequel.
Famed comedian George Carlin (“Jersey Girl”) joins a talented vocal cast that includes Glenn Close (“101 Dalmatians”) and Lance Henricksen (“Tarzan”), who both return from “Tarzan,” alongside new voices Brad Garrett (TV’s “Everybody Loves Raymond”), Ron Perlman (“Hellboy”) and Estelle Harris (TV’s “Seinfeld”).
TARZAN II is a DisneyToon Studios production. Produced by Carolyn Bates and directed by Brian Smith. Based on the “Tarzan” stories created by Edgar Rice Burroughs. TARZAN II premieres on DVD on June 14, 2005. Available on Disney DVD for $29.99 (S.R.P.).
TARZAN II is the “untold chapter” of Tarzan’s youth. As a child, Tarzan (Harrison Chad, “Dora the Explorer”) feels like the worst ape ever. Kala (Glenn Close) reassures him that his differences will one day be his strengths, but these very differences cause an accident that leaves Kala injured, and Tarzan missing and presumed dead by the rest of the tribe.
Convinced that everyone would be better off without him, Tarzan sets off to find his place in the world.
A dramatic encounter with an outcast family of gorillas - Mama Gunda (Estelle Harris) and her brutish sons Kago (Ron Perlman) and Uto (Brad Garrett) - sends Tarzan up to Dark Mountain.
There, he uncovers the myth of the dreaded Zugor, a legendary monster who turns out to be nothing more than a cranky old hermit ape (George Carlin). Zugor starts out as Tarzan’s reluctant mentor but soon becomes his great friend. With Zugor’s help, Tarzan is able to find his own set of remarkable jungle skills and learns that even though he’s not an ape, he’s something much more amazing and wonderful he’s a Tarzan!
