BURBANK, Calif., February 11, 2005 – Experience the beginnings of the legend in the
all-new movie <b>TARZAN® II</b>, the sequel to Disney’s animated classic “Tarzan®.” This
exciting adventure, from the creators of Disney’s “Tarzan” and approved by creator
Edgar Rice Burroughs’s estate, takes place when Tarzan is just a kid “going ape”
alongside his good buddies Terk the ape and Tantor the elephant. Phil Collins won an
Academy Award® for “Tarzan” (Best Original Song “You’ll Be In My Heart” 1999) and
he delivers two powerful, original songs to this new sequel. Famed comedian George
Carlin (“<i>Jersey Girl</i>”) joins a talented vocal cast that includes Glenn Close (“<i>101
Dalmatians</i>”) and Lance Henricksen (“<i>Tarzan</i>”), who both return from “Tarzan,”
alongside new voices Brad Garrett (TV’s “<i>Everybody Loves Raymond</i>”), Ron Perlman
(“<i>Hellboy</i>”) and Estelle Harris (TV’s “<i>Seinfeld</i>”).
<b>TARZAN II</b> is a DisneyToon Studios production. Produced by Carolyn Bates and directed by
Brian Smith. Based on the “Tarzan” stories created by Edgar Rice Burroughs. <b>TARZAN II</b>
premieres on DVD on June 14, 2005. Available on Disney DVD for $29.99 (S.R.P.).
<b>TARZAN II</b> is the “untold chapter” of Tarzan’s youth. As a child, Tarzan (Harrison Chad,
“<i>Dora the Explorer</i>”) feels like the worst ape ever. Kala (Glenn Close) reassures him that his
differences will one day be his strengths, but these very differences cause an accident that leaves
Kala injured, and Tarzan missing and presumed dead by the rest of the tribe. Convinced that
everyone would be better off without him, Tarzan sets off to find his place in the world.
A dramatic encounter with an outcast family of gorillas - Mama Gunda (Estelle Harris) and her
brutish sons Kago (Ron Perlman) and Uto (Brad Garrett) - sends Tarzan up to Dark Mountain.
There, he uncovers the myth of the dreaded Zugor, a legendary monster who turns out to be
nothing more than a cranky old hermit ape (George Carlin). Zugor starts out as Tarzan’s
reluctant mentor but soon becomes his great friend. With Zugor’s help, Tarzan is able to find his
own set of remarkable jungle skills and learns that even though he’s not an ape, he’s something
much more amazing and wonderful – he’s a Tarzan!
