Director: Chris Buck, Kevin Lima
Cast: Tony Goldwyn, Minnie Driver, Glenn Close, Lance Henriksen, Brian Blessed

This Disney version of Edgar Rice Burroughs’ Tarzan story is a visually superlative 2D animation, but its script is utterly and completely formulaic. The story is familiar to everyone, so it would be nice to have at least one surprising turn in the course of events. “You’ll Be in My Heart” by Phil Collins won an Academy Award for best song.
