This straight-to-video Disney sequel, taking place when Tarzan is stilla boy, is so perfectly executed, it feels as though it could've beenadditional material cut from the first movie. <br><br>Tarzan, finding that he can't keep up with the other gorillayoungsters, begins to question who and what he is, and the film is moreor less about his self-discovery and how he begins the transformationfrom just being a human boy to becoming the 'Tarzan' we all know andlove. <br><br>All of your favorite characters are back (except Jane and the professorof course), as well as the voice talents of Glenn Close as Kala andLance Henrikson as Kerchak. The casting director did a wonderful job infinding a young voice talent to perfectly match the young Tarzan fromthe original. Furthermore, it appears that most of the originalanimators are back as well, for the animation is something to behold,and a few new songs as well as a reprise from the first film by PhilCollins make it that much more convincing. <br><br>This film has the passion and heart that is usually lacking in thegreat majority of Disney sequels—you can really feel the care andrespect for the material by all involved in the production. It's bothtouching and humorous, and not just for children—adults will find thisamusing as well. Now if Disney will just follow suit and continue tomake sequels such as this one, maybe they can actually put more thanone every ten years in the theater.<br><br>VERDICT: Disney succeeds in finally making a worthwhile sequel, much ofthe caliber of the original. Recommended to all—if you liked theoriginal Tarzan, you'll like this one. And to all you collectors outthere, this one is definitely worth the $20—I know I'll be adding it to*my* collection sometime in the near future.<br><br>7.5 out of 10.0<br><br>~AleXa~

Set back when Tarzan was just a boy, this is the story of Tarzan's journey to self-discovery. When Tarzan begins to see that he is not like the other gorillas, his mother Kala assures him that these slight differences only make him stronger. But when these differences put Kala in danger, he decides everyone would be better off without him and runs away. He then finds himself in a dark desolate land called Dark Mountain where he meets a new friend who helps him discover that even though he does not possess the talents of an ape, he has his own unique set of jungle skills that make him even more amazing than any other creature so that he can finally see who he truly is.
