Tarzan grows up to become a strong gorilla-like man, whose best friends are [[ThoseTwoGuys a tomboy female gorilla and a neurotic elephant]] (Rosie O'Donnell and Wayne Knight). One day, Sabor attacks the gorillas and is defeated by Tarzan, which earns him some respect from Kerchak. But then a British expedition team that came to study gorillas appears, led by Professor Archimedes Q. Porter. His daughter Jane is attacked by baboons, surviving only after being rescued by Tarzan. Now Tarzan must decide where he belongs - and also prevent the [[EgomaniacHunter trigger-happy hunter guide]] Clayton from ruining everything...

* VagueAge: Tarzan's age is hard to pin down. Judging from the fact that Sabor is still around (Leopards live to be 17 at the eldest), as is Kala (Gorillas have a lifespan of 35 years and females reach sexual maturity at 12 years) he is likely to be 18-to-20 years old at the eldest.

** Sabor, the leopard that killed Tarzan's family when he was only an infant, is somehow still alive and dangerous when Tarzan is an adult in his early twenties, despite the fact that leopards don't usually live past their late teens. There are exceptions, but such an elderly cat would definitely ''not'' be so insanely fast and agile.

* LaserGuidedKarma: It took twenty years, but Tarzan is ultimately the one to bring down the one responsible for his parents' deaths. And, again, he's not even aware of that significance; he only killed Sabor because she was threatening his ''adoptive'' parents.

* RaceLift: Of a sort. In the original novel, Jane was an American and Tarzan was the lost son of a British lord. In this film, it's just the reverse: Jane is a posh Victorian Brit while Tarzan has an American accent for some reason.

* RuleOfCool: The guy is ''surfing'' down giant vines. Either he has really smooth feet, or the vines are greased. Otherwise, there is a going to be a [[ArtisticLicensePhysics lot of friction]].

It's either that or a lifetime of not wearing shoes has left his feet so calloused that you'd need a blowtorch to get them off.

The film opens in the late 1860s, where an English couple and their infant son are the only survivors of a shipwreck off the coast of uncharted DarkestAfrica. Using the remains of the ship, they build a new home in a large tree. At the same time, a gorilla named Kala and her mate Kerchak live peacefully with an infant child. The peace is soon shattered when their child is killed by the vicious leopard Sabor, and Kala is left devastated. Some time later, she hears a baby's cries and stumbles upon the now-abandoned treehouse. As she enters, she sees blood covered paw prints and the dead parents; also the predator's victims. Action ensues and Kala saves the boy from Sabor. Her mate, Kerchak, the dominant male of the gorilla band, despises the human for his appearance, but Kala raises him anyway, naming him "Tarzan".
