English (English subtitles)


Based on the classic Edgar Rice Burroughs novel, this thrilling animated story highlights the importance of acceptance and community. When his parents are killed by a leopard after being shipwrecked on the coast of Equatorial Africa, Tarzan is taken in by a family of gorillas who raise him as one of their own. He grows up with the jungle as his playground, learning to move with ease through the trees, but he somehow still feels different from his fellow animals. A group of human explorers enter their territory. When he rescues a professor’s daughter, Jane, from a dangerous situation in the jungle, he realises he's not a gorilla after all, but a human just like her. Tarzan must decide whether he wants to be with Jane, whom he has fallen for, or stay with the only family he's ever known.

What our educators say

"Some of them saw a clip from Wakolda (The German Doctor) on TV recently and really wanted to watch it. So I thought I’d take a chance, not expecting them to watch the whole film but the majority were absolutely gripped. "
