* AccidentallyCorrectZoology: In the book series the protagonist is [[RaisedByWolves raised by]] a fictional ape species named "Mangani", which combines the physical and behavioral traits of chimpanzees, gorillas and primitive humans. In 1996, in the Bili Forest in the Democratic Republic of Congo, a subspecies of chimpanzee was discovered that is larger than other chimpanzees and shows some gorilla-like behavior. The similarity between the Mangani and the "Bili ape" did not go unnoticed.

* EndOfAnEra: Generally considered to be the last film of the Disney Renaissance. Production on ''Kingdom Of The Sun'' was getting worse by the day while this film was wrapping up, convincing the higher ups that it was finally time to put the blockbuster musical formula to rest, making this the final one. ''Sun'' eventually became the broad comedy ''Disney/TheEmperorsNewGroove'', the studio's first non-musical since ''Disney/TheRescuersDownUnder'', which kicked off a string of more "experimental" films at the beginning of the New Millennium (''Disney/{{Fantasia 2000}}'' technically came first, but that had been in production for a decade). ''Tarzan'' was also Disney's last hand-drawn film to be guaranteed box office gold, as these newer films did poorly with critics and audiences, ''Disney/LiloAndStitch'' being more of a SleeperHit, thanks to the sudden swerve an heavy competition with CGI features. It all ended up being part of the perfect storm which killed American hand-drawn animated features.



* This is considered to be the final film of the Disney Renaissance (the next film in line was the long-awaited sequel to ''Disney/{{Fantasia}}'', ''Disney/{{Fantasia 2000}}'', which had been announced back in 1991, and this film is considered the beginning of the Millennium Age of Animation).

* DuelingMovies: With ''WesternAnimation/TheIronGiant'', though it was hardly a duel. This was mostly due to marketing, however, as ''Giant'' had a mere four months of advertising from an apathetic studio while ''Tarzan'' was being heavily plugged a year in advance. Things turned out better for ''Giant'' in the end, as it eventually became a massive CultClassic while ''Tarzan'' merely became a footnote on Disney's history.



* SameLanguageDub: A weird case. According to '''Creator/BrianBlessed''', although Tony Goldwyn provided the voice for Tarzan in the theatrical animated Tarzan film, Brian provided Tarzan's iconic yodel.
