Disney turns Edgar Rice Burroughs classic novel into an excellent animated feat. Tarzan, an orphaned child on a deserted island is adopted by an ape. He remains the "ugly duckling" of the ape clan, who wonder what kind of creature he is until a small group of human sightseers arrive on the land. That's where Tarzan meets Jane, a daring young Englishwoman. It's one of the best Disney movies to date and adults will like it too. If there are any fans of Edgar Rice Burroughs out there; this movie deviates completely from the book, but still uses the same fundamental idea.
