The legend of Tarzan is told in breathtaking fashion, from the loss of his parents in Africa to his adoption by a gorilla mother, Kala, to his rescue of Jane and the revelation that he is a human. Tarzan must decide where he belongs in life, while falling in love and saving his gorilla family from outsiders. An exciting film for the whole family, with songs by Phil Collins. The film's music was nominated for two Grammy Awards and one Golden Globe.
