Someone at Disney must have been listening because on Aug 12, 2014 Tarzan will finally be released on Blu-ray! It has always been one of my favorite movies and I have stated several times that I have wanted this movie on Blu-ray. With Phil Collins Musical performances and a wonderful story, Tarzan is a timeless classic.
I remember when this film first came out. I was fascinated with the background story, how the artists had Tarzan mimic skateboarders as he moved through the trees. My brother, who was also a fan, used to tell me all the Skateboard tricks he saw Tarzan do while moving through the trees. It was certainly a wonderful way to elevate Tarxan’s character and show his athletic abilities and strength that it took to live in the jungle.
“With his wisecracking ape buddy Terk and neurotic elephant pal Tantor, Tarzan learns to survive in the animal kingdom. His “Two Worlds” collide with the arrival of humans, forcing Tarzan to choose between a “civilized” life with the beautiful Jane and the life he knows and loves with his gorilla family.” (Disney Tarzan)
Of course, Disney isn’t just releasing Tarzan on Aug. 12th. It turns out that Disney is also releasing several Disney classics! Hercules, Bedknobs and Broomsticks, the 10th anniversary of Mickey, Donald, Goofy: The Three Musketeers, The Adventures of Ichabod and Mr. Toad and Fun Fancy Free are all being released on Disney Blu-ray August 12, 2014 alongside Tarzan.
