Tarzan is a 1999 film animated film produced by Walt Disney Feature Animation and released by Walt Disney Pictures and Buena Vista Pictures Distribution. The 37th animated feature in the Disney Animated Canon, it is based upon the Tarzan of the Apes novels by Edgar Rice Burroughs, and is the only major motion picture version of the Tarzan property to be animated.

Tarzan is considered by many to be the last major box office success of the Disney Renaissance before the studio's decline in the early to mid 2000s (sometimes known as Disney's "Second Dark Age"). When it was released on June 18, 1999, its production budget of $130 million made it the most expensive animated film ever made until it was topped by Disney's own $140 million Treasure Planet in 2002. It was also the first Disney animated feature to open at first place at the North American box office since Pocahontas (1995).


In the late 1880s off the coast of Africa, a young British couple and their infant son escape a burning ship in the storm on a small rowboat and land on the unexplored rainforests of Africa, where they craft themselves a large treehouse in which to live using salvaged ship parts in order to survive ("Two Worlds"). Meanwhile, a gorilla couple named Kerchak and Kala are traveling with the rest of their group when their infant son is killed and eaten by a leopard named Sabor. The following day, the still-heartbroken Kala hears a distant child's cry and, following it, stumbles upon the treehouse. She enters the treehouse where she finds it trashed, and blood covered paw prints on the floor from the corpses of the couple. Kala finds the orphaned human infant and discovers a still-hungry Sabor is hiding in the treehouse. She manages to rescue the human infant from Sabor and returns with it to the rest of the group, but Kerchak despises the infant for his appearance. After learning the couple was killed by Sabor and there are no other humans, Kerchak lets Kala keep him, but he doesn't declare him as his son. Kala raises the boy as her own, naming him Tarzan ("You'll Be in My Heart").

A few years later, Tarzan has grown into a young boy and befriends Kala and Kerchak's niece, a feisty young female gorilla named Terk. One day, Terk and two of her friends go to a pond where the elephants are, and Tarzan manages to catch up with her. Terk tells Tarzan he can hang out with them if he gets a hair from an elephant being sarcastic hoping it would get rid of him, but Tarzan takes her seriously, so he tries to get a hair but he starts to cause a commotion with all the elephants including a young elephant named Tantor thinking Tarzan is a piranha. Eventually, he gets the hair, but causes all the elephants (except Tantor) to stampede right towards the gorillas, forcing Kerchak to save a baby gorilla from being trampled. In the aftermath of the stampede, Terk is relieved that Tarzan is still alive and amazed that he got the hair, and they soon befriend Tantor. Kerchak arrives and confronts Tarzan over the stampede when he owns up for it. He harshly declares that Tarzan will never be one of the gorillas, which emotionally hurts Tarzan that he runs off into the other part of the jungle. Kala finds an upset Tarzan covering himself with mud, wanting to fit in with the other gorillas, she reassures him that he is not that different from the other gorillas.

Tarzan later goes on adventures with Tantor and Terk ("Son of Man"). Despite his inability to compete with the rest of the gorillas, but with help from Terk, Tarzan perseveres and eventually grows into a strong, capable, and gorilla-like grown man. When Sabor attacks the group and overpowers Kerchak, Tarzan leaps into battle and despite receiving a scratch on his chest that is almost into his heart, Tarzan manages to kill the leopard, thus earning Kerchak's reluctant respect and approval. Suddenly, a gunshot rang out in the different part of the jungle. Although Sabor is killed, a deadlier danger has only just begun. Kerchak orders the group to move out, but Tarzan follows the gunshots out of curiosity.

Tarzan discovers a group of humans arriving: Professor Porter and his daughter Jane, who have traveled to Africa in search of gorillas and study them, along with their hunter escort Clayton. Jane accidentally gets separated from her father and Clayton, and then has an encounter with a horde of olive baboons, who chase after her. Jane runs towards a cliff and tries to jump to the other side, only to be caught mid-leap by Tarzan. He then rescues her from the baboons as the chase rages on, but finally, Tarzan gets Jane to safety. Curious about Jane, Tarzan proceeds to examine her, and unintentionally tickling her at one point when examining her foot. He notices a rip on the finger of her glove and after taking off the glove, Tarzan compares himself to her by placing his hand against hers, and listens to her heartbeat where he realises that he and Jane are similar, but the same species. After hearing Clayton's gunshots, Tarzan takes Jane back to her camp.

Meanwhile, Tarzan's friends, who are looking for him, arrive at the human trio's campsite and proceed to destroy it, playing music on various human objects they find in camp ("Trashin' the Camp"). When Jane returns to the camp and sees the gorillas, Kerchak shows up, along with Kala and the others, having heard the commotion, and escorts Tarzan and the rest of the gorillas away from the campsite before Professor Porter and Clayton arrive, who also heard the commotion, and Jane tells them after her encounter with Tarzan. In the jungle, Kerchak orders the group to stay away from the campsite, but Tarzan protests, believing that the humans pose no threat. Despite being ordered to protect the family and stay away from the humans, Tarzan secretly returns to the campsite and Jane introduces him to her father and Clayton, who take interest in him. The three humans teach Tarzan about the human world ("Strangers Like Me") as well as how to speak English properly. Meanwhile, Tarzan and Jane begin to fall in love. Unfortunately, Tarzan refuses to take them to the gorillas' location, fearing Kerchak's fury.

A few days later, when the boat to England arrives, the trio, unable to find the gorillas, prepare to leave, and Tarzan is heartbroken to see Jane depart. Clayton tells him that Jane will stay once they find the gorillas. Tarzan, eager to stay with Jane, agrees and schemes with his friends Terk and Tantor to lure Kerchak away from the nesting site by respectively disguising them as Jane and Professor Porter while Tarzan leads the humans to the nesting site. The humans are amazed to see the gorillas and excited to mingle with them, but Kerchak unexpectedly returns, and upon seeing the humans, he begins to attack them. Tarzan dives in to restrain Kerchak from attacking them, putting him in a headlock long enough for the humans to escape. After releasing him, Tarzan alienates himself in shame from the gorillas after Kerchak coldly accuses him for betraying his family. Feeling sympathetic, Kala takes Tarzan to his biological parents' treehouse, showing him his true past, and says that she wants to be happy whatever he decides. Tarzan makes his decision to depart for England with the others by donning his father's suit and bids farewell to Kala.

When Tarzan, Jane, and Archimedes board the ship the next day to return to England, Jane and her father are captured by the thugs (who have also turned on the captain and his officers); as soon as he steps on the boat's deck, Tarzan sees what's going on and tries to evade ambush from the thugs, but because he is wearing shoes, he couldn't climb up the funnel, causing him to lose his grip and crash into a pile of boxes, allowing the thugs to capture a weakened Tarzan and slam him against the superstructure. Just then, Clayton appears on deck, firing his rifle in the air, demanding to know what was going on. Tarzan, still trying to break free, begs for Clayton's help, and soon discovers Clayton is behind the ambush when he teases him, (pretending he didn't know him and calling him "ape-man") and gets slammed in the stomach by the end of Clayton's rifle. Clayton reveals his true intentions to Tarzan that he wanted to find the gorillas so he can capture them in cages and sell them each for a high price. He then thanks Tarzan for helping him, admitting that he couldn't have done it if it wasn't for Tarzan revealing the gorillas' location before having him imprisoned in the cargo hold with the other captives. Tarzan, feeling betrayed and realizing what he had done, screams out loud in anger. Tantor and Terk hear Tarzan's scream in the distance, with the former finally growing a spine, and rush to rescue him as Clayton and his crew travel into the jungle on a boat. They climb onboard the ship, and free Tarzan and the others, allowing them to race off back into the jungle.

That night as Clayton and his men capture the gorillas and managing to hold down Kerchak, Tarzan rallies the aid of the other animals and leads them into stopping Clayton and his men by scaring them off, but Clayton goes into hiding. Tarzan frees Kerchak and they work together to rescue the gorillas. Jane rescues Kala from two of Clayton's men, where one of them is chased off by the same horde of baboons that attacked Jane earlier, and she frees Kala from her cage. Just as Tarzan reunites with Kala, Clayton shoots Tarzan in the arm, badly grazing it, and mortally wounds Kerchak by shooting him in the chest when he charges to protect Tarzan. Clayton chases Tarzan up into the treetops and they duel where Tarzan disarms Clayton, holding him at gunpoint. Although Tarzan mimics the sound of the gunshot and spares Clayton's life, he destroys his rifle. This causes an enraged Clayton to pursue Tarzan with his machete, trying desperately to stab and kill him, into a tangle of jungle vines, which Tarzan uses to ensnare Clayton to prevent him from attacking any further. However, Clayton begins to wildly slash the vines, but Tarzan notices one vine is looped around Clayton's neck and tries to warn him, but the enraged hunter doesn't listen and does not cut it, causing him to fall and accidentally hang himself. Tarzan then finds the dying Kerchak, who apologizes to Tarzan for his behavior and accepts him as his son, but makes him, as the uncontestably most capable of the younger generation, the new leader of the gorillas. Kerchak succumbs to his gunshot wounds and dies, and Tarzan and the gorillas mourn for his demise. Tarzan, fulfilling his promise to Kerchak, leads the gorilla group to the new nesting grounds.

The next day with Clayton's men captured and the captain and his crew released, Jane and Professor Porter prepare to depart for England, bidding Tarzan farewell as he stays with the gorilla group. As the rowboat leaves the shore, Professor Porter encourages his daughter to stay with the man she loves, Jane agrees and jumps overboard and returns to the shore where she reunites with Tarzan. Professor Porter follows after shortly making his own decision, and Kala welcomes Jane into the group. Tarzan, Jane and her father embark on their new life together as they reside in the jungle among the wildlife ("Two Worlds (Finale)").

The songs for the film were written and performed by Phil Collins.

Deep Canvas[]

To create the sweeping 3D backgrounds, Tarzan's production team developed a 3D painting and rendering technique known as Deep Canvas. This technique allows artists to produce CGI background that looks like a traditional painting. For this advancement, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences awarded the creators of Deep Canvas a Technical Achievement Award in 2003.

After Tarzan, Deep Canvas was used for a number of sequences in Atlantis: The Lost Empire, particularly large panoramic shots of the island and several action sequences.

Expanded to support moving objects as part of the background, Deep Canvas was utilized to create about 75% of the environments in Disney's next major animated action film, Treasure Planet, though the results were less stunning, due to the film's tighter painting style which could have been accomplished without such advanced software. Deep Canvas was designed to accomplish a very loose, brushstroke-based style without hard edges, but Treasure Planet's backgrounds were more hard-edged and clean.

Deep Canvas was finally used in a more natural setting in restrained doses for Disney's final two traditionally animated theatrical releases, Brother Bear and Home on the Range.

An advanced version of Deep Canvas technique was originally planned to be used in Angel and Her No Good Sister, a Disney animated feature which features bluegrass music. However, since the project was cancelled, it is unknown if Deep Canvas will be used on any of the new projects given the Disney/Pixar merger and the software Disney will have acquired as a result.


  • 1999 Annie Award in the Technical Achievement in the Field of Animation category (for the Deep Canvas process).
  • 2000 Golden Globe Award for Best Original Song for the song "You'll Be in My Heart" by Phil Collins.
  • 2000 Academy Award for Best Song for the song "You'll Be In My Heart" by Phil Collins. (beating Toy Story 2)
  • 2000 Grammy Award for Best Compilation Soundtrack Album for a Motion Picture, Television or Other Visual Media.

Home video[]

Main article: Tarzan (video)


  • Takeshi Kaneshiro, Charlie Yeung, and Sandra Ng provided the voices of Tarzan, Jane, and Terk respectively in the Cantonese language version of the film.
  • Wakin Chau sang all the songs in both the Cantonese and Mandarin language versions of the film.
  • The treehouse in Disneyland's Adventureland, was renamed Tarzan's Treehouse in 1999 (it originally was the Swiss Family Treehouse).
  • Phil Collins sang the songs not only in the original English, but also in Spanish, German, French, and Italian.
  • Tarzan's home, Deep Jungle, is also a playable world in the Disney/Square Enix video game Kingdom Hearts. Sora, Donald Duck, and Goofy had to work with Tarzan to save his world from the Heartless and Clayton. It didn't re-appear in Chain of Memories or Kingdom Hearts II, due to a contract expiration between Disney and the Edgar Rice Burroughs estate.
  • Minnie Driver largely ad-libbed the breathless speech in which Jane tells her father and Clayton about meeting Tarzan for the first time.
  • Tarzan has been adapted from its book many times over the years and is second only to Dracula in the adaptation chart.
  • This was the second time Glenn Close was in any Tarzan film, the first being a non-Disney live-action film called "Greystoke", in which she dubbed Andie MacDowell's portrayal of Jane.
  • William Cecil Clayton, the character in the book on whom the film's Clayton is (loosely) based, is Tarzan's cousin; Tarzan's birth name is John Clayton, Earl of Greystoke.
  • All of the actors who voiced gorillas also provided their characters' own "gorilla" vocal effects.
  • When the lightning flashes in the original movie, viewers can see Clayton's corpse's shadow in the flash, dangling from the vine-turned-noose for a brief moment.
  • Clayton is shown to be a much braver villain than Gaston from Beauty and the Beast, Scar from The Lion King, and Judge Claude Frollo from The Hunchback of Notre Dame (to name a few), not fearing death when Tarzan is about to kill him (except when he fell and tried to pull the vine off his neck).
  • Brian Blessed and the late Sir Nigel Hawthorne both did voices in the British film, Freddie as F.R.O.7. as El Supremo (the big bad like Clayton) and the head of the Secret British Services, respectively.
  • Alex D. Linz (Young Tarzan) and Jason Marsden (Mungo) both share the same birthday, only Linz was born on Marsden's fourteenth birthday.
  • This was the third time dust was seen in a Disney movie. The first time was in The Lion King and the next was in Pocahontas.
  • This is the final entry of the Disney Renaissance.
  • Tarzan has an unusual body count of six primary or secondary characters (Kala and Kerchak's first son, Tarzan's parents, Sabor, Clayton, and Kerchak). Besides, Kala, Kerchak, and Tarzan (twice) are injured along the movie, making Tarzan one of the "bloodiest" Disney movies.
  • The first line of dialogue was spoken 8 minutes and 18 seconds into the film.
  • Towards the end of the film, when Kerchak passes away after being shot by Clayton, Tarzan does not shed one tear during the scene. It is one of the first deaths of a non-antagonist where no tears are shed.
  • When it came to the score tracks on the soundtrack, almost every track had varied pieces. For example, the track titled, "A Wondrous Place" first used the part where Tarzan takes Clayton, Jane, and her father to see the gorillas, then used the musical score part where Kala has brought the baby Tarzan to the jungle and argues with Kerchak over the baby, and finally went to the part where Kerchak accepts Tarzan as his son, passes down the leading position down to him, and dies.
  • Tarzan is the second Disney film whose title appears twice (once being in the beginning, and the other time at the end, just before the end credits), the first being The Lion King.
  • Tarzan is absent from House of Mouse, except the show's website, Tantor is the only character in the show without any of the other Tarzan characters.
  • This was the last animated film from Walt Disney Animation Studios to win an Academy Award until Frozen, incidentally also co-directed by Chris Buck.
  • When in reruns on ABC’s Wonderful World of Disney in the 2000s, this movie received the TV-PG rating for violence, in spite of receiving the G rating by the MPAA.
    • If it were made and released today, it would have earned the higher PG rating.
  • Tarzan is one of the notable films that will not be getting a live-action remake due to legal issues with the family of Edgar Rice Burroughs.[1]
  • Tarzan characters are omitted from Disney Emoji Blitz because of the legalities of Burroughs.
  • Due to legal issues with the family of Edgar Rice Burroughs, Tarzan characters are omitted from appearing in Disney Media and Games.

Easter eggs and references[]

To other Disney media[]

  • A Hidden Mickey can be seen at the start of the film, as baby Tarzan make saliva bubbles on his mouth.
  • After the chase between Tarzan & Jane and the baboons, the chimpanzee and a baboon use Jane's umbrella to float safely to the ground, similar to Mary Poppins.
  • The teapot and cup that are seen in the scene where Terk and the other animals mess up the camp are of the same design as Mrs. Potts the teapot and her son, Chip the teacup, from Beauty and the Beast.
    • During the same scene, Terk briefly makes a skeleton dance, a nod to the short The Skeleton Dance.
    • In that same scene, two apes briefly recreate the dance from the Disney short film In the Bag.
    • Additionally, the scene in which Tantor briefly uses the lampshade he used as a trumpet to spread bubbles reflecting the gorillas through the camp is an homage to the "Sing, Sweet Nightingale" sequence from Cinderella.
  • One of the toys that fall out from Professor Porter's pockets when he is turned upside down by an ape resembles Little Brother, the dog from the previous feature Mulan.
    • Oddly enough, part one of a Movie Surfers trailer for Tarzan appears in the initial home video release of Mulan, and that is acknowledged in part two on that of A Bug's Life.
  • After Clayton marks the spot of the gorilla's nest on his map, one of them takes his shotgun and starts looking at it from the barrel, which is a reference to the theme park attraction Jungle Cruise, where a gorilla doing the exact same thing can be seen.

To previous Tarzan media[]

  • Tantor's name is a nod to how elephants were called in the books.
  • The scene where Tarzan covers himself with mud to look more like an ape after watching his reflection in disgust is a reference to two separate scenes from the books.
  • During the "Son of Man" sequence, Tarzan and Terk briefly use a a lasso, Tarzan's choice of weapon on the novels.
  • Tarzan briefly does a full-nelson on Terk, a nod to the movement he made in the novel on Terk's male counterpart, Terkoz.
  • Tarzan killing Sabor offscreen and lifting her corpse is a nod to the film Greystoke: The Legend of Tarzan, Lord of the Apes, which sees Tarzan drowning an ape in a similar manner. Tarzan letting out his yell after killing Sabor is a recurring occurrence in the books.
  • Tarzan and Jane's first interaction is reminiscent of their first meeting in the 1932 film Tarzan of the Apes.
  • Jane's sketch of Tarzan is named "Tarzan of the Apes". Her scene of passionately describing Tarzan to her father resembles a moment from the books where she described Tarzan to a group of sailors.
  • Clayton asks Tarzan if they ever met, a nod to them being cousins in the books.
  • One of Clayton's thugs is named "Snipes", a minor villain in the novels.
  • Tarzan refuses to kill Clayton by smashing his gun. This is a reference to Tarzan's habit of destroying his enemies' guns after he or his friends were shot in the Johnny Weissmuller films.
