Tarzan, the story of a baby boy who was raised by gorillas, communicates with other jungle animals, and then one day meets a young woman who would change his life forever. Sounds like an “interesting” movie right? Wrong, it is a fantastic movie. I remember watching this movie on VHS and being so jealous of Jane because she got to fall in love with this carefree ape-man. Watching this movie again, at 23 years old, I can say I am still jealous of Jane getting this fairytale romance. Disney has a way of connecting with its audience. The story may seem absolutely absurd on paper, but when a person gets to experience the story on the big screen, the silly plotline turns out to be a gripping and fantastic tale.
Tarzan came out in 1999 and is 37th animated film from Disney. It earned $448.2 million at the box office, surpassing its $130 million budget. The character Tarzan, becomes the hero of the adventure, staying behind to lead his tribe and look after those who looked after him for so long. Jane makes the tough decision of either going back to her homeland with her father or staying with her new love. She ultimately jumps ship and swims back to Tarzan.
This movie illustrates the love of a mother and the bond between two unlikely characters. Love transcends hate, differences, and prejudices that some may have against others. Love saves the day, and it is shown in this movie between a man and ape.
