Overview

The jungle will never be the same in Disney's animated sequel Tarzan & Jane. The film is presented in 1.78:1 anamorphic widescreen (labeled as 1.66:1 on the package) and looks excellent. The colors are all very bright and thrilling while the black levels appear to be uniformly solid. Without any discernible defects hindering the image, this is a great looking transfer that should please fans and kids alike. The soundtrack is presented in Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround in English and French. While this soundtrack may not be a rumbling, bustling directional effects-filled mix, overall it works very well (except when the songs kick in) within the confines of the film. Also included n this disc are English subtitles and captions. Tarzan & Jane features a few supplements for the younger crowd, starting off with a set top game titled "Build Your Own Treehouse" which allows the viewer to build Tarzan's house from the ground on up. Also included on this disc is a narrated story titled "Tarzan & Jane's Adventure Builder," a few promo spots for some other Disney movies, and a short "commercial"-like spot for RadioDisney.com.

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."

Tarzan & Jane 3.7 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 3 reviews.

Okay, truth be told, the movie is pretty much what you'd expect - decent animation and story telling, but not as good as the original feature. The bonus track, however, is probably the coolest bonus track I've ever seen (it's called ''Tarzan & Jane's Adventure Builder''). Strange to be saying this about one of Disney's B-titles, but it's true. It's a choose-your-own-adventure type story in which you get to decide what Tarzan should do. There are dozens of choices, and tons of different endings. I've played this track so many times and still can't believe how much new content there is each time. The production value on the bonus track is terrific - a rapid montage of stills that dissolve into each other, narrated by Tantor the elephant, set to a fully scored soundtrack. I hope Disney does more of these.

I love Disney Movies, but this was not typical Disney quality. It is like most sequels, not up to the originals standard. I got bored with it, before I got halfway through the movie.
