TARZAN is based on Edgar Rice Burroughs’ classic story and the 1999 Disney animated, smash-hit film about an orphan jungle boy raised by a nurturing family of apes. The young boy strives for acceptance by his ape father while grappling with his uniqueness. When a human expedition enters their territory, Tarzan, now a man, encounters strangers like himself for the first time. This is a heartwarming tale of parental love, a child’s need for acceptance, and his search for his place in his family and the world.
TARZAN features a powerful musical score by Phil Collins.
