These are films we all return to again and again because of their impact on The Walt Disney Company. Here are some my favorite characters, scenes, and elements in a Disney 1990s Animated Films Showdown.
The first images and poster have been released for The Legend of Tarzan, Warner Brothers’ new live-action take on author Edgar Rice Burroughs‘ Tarzan stories.
The movie stars True Blood star Alexander Skarsgard in the title role. He’s joined by The Wolf of Wall Street breakout Margot Robbie, who will also be seen playing Harley Quinn in the upcoming Suicide Squad movie, as Jane; Djimon Hounsou (Gladiator, Blood Diamond) as Chief Mbonga; Samuel L. Jackson (Pulp Fiction, The Avengers) as George Washington Williams; and Christoph Waltz (Inglourious Basterds, Django Unchained) as the villain, Captain Leon Rom.
You can read more about the movie and see the images and poster below.
Later this summer Disney will release the first United States Blu-ray of Tarzan, its 1999 animated feature. Disney’s take on the legendary man among the apes swung into our lives some 15 years ago. Its impact, much like that of another animated, African-set adventure (The Lion King) can be found in many areas across The Walt Disney Company. The breathtakingly beautiful film offers the emotional resonance of Disney’s most renowned classics. Likewise, its stellar soundtrack is like none the studio had developed up to that point.
Grab a vine and get ready to remember why Tarzan remains in many an individual’s heart.
