Overview

Even when you're the King of the Jungle, you don't want to forget your anniversary with your significant other, as taught in this direct-to-video sequel to the 1999 Disney animated adventure Tarzan. Tarzan (voice of Michael T. Weiss) and Jane (voice of Olivia d'Abo) are soon to celebrate their first anniversary together, and as the two find themselves looking back on the ups and downs of the past year, Jane decides she wants to get something special for Tarzan to mark the occasion. But Jane has a hard time deciding just what the special gift should be, and even their animal friends Terk the Gorilla (voice of April Winchell) and Tantor the Elephant (voice of Jim Cummings) are short on gift ideas. As it turns out, it's Tarzan who has the big surprise for Jane, as he plans something special to show how he's come to understand the life she left behind to be with him. Tarzan and Jane also features a new recording of the song "Two Worlds," written for the 1999 film Tarzan, and here performed by the song's composer, Phil Collins, with teen pop star Mandy Moore.

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Donald Liebenson
This produced-for-video sequel is all about love. Well, mostly. Comprising three episodes from the TV series Disney spun off its award-winning Tarzan, framed and linked together with new footage, the animated film is essentially a look back at the ape man and his bride's first year of marriage. As Jane ponders how to mark the occasion, she recalls previous jungle adventures with wisecracking ape Terk and stouthearted elephant Tantor. In the first, Jane receives a visit from her snooty English girlfriends, who think Tarzan is a "savage" until he saves them from a leopard. In the second, unscrupulous diamond hunters dupe Tarzan. In the third, Tarzan is suspicious of another visitor from England, Jane's lifelong friend, who also has ulterior motives. While the animation falls well shy of the original film's groundbreaking imagery, children will enjoy a visit with these popular characters. Parents of young girls will also appreciate that the feisty Jane is not the type to wait for her loincloth-clad prince to rescue her in times of danger. Academy Award-winner Phil Collins and Mandy Moore reprise the song "Two Worlds" in a newly recorded duet, and Moore swings on a sweet new number, "Singing to the Song of Life."
