12. Tarzan

Release Year: 1999

Written and Directed by Chris Buck and Kevin Lima

Starring Minnie Driver, Tony Goldwyn, Glenn Close, Nigel Hawthorne, Rosie O’ Donnell, Brian Blessed, Lance Henriksen, and Wayne Knight.

While not to be confused with the awful legend of Tarzan inspired movie George of the Jungle, this animated Disney movie is a classic.

The premise of Tarzan is that Tarzan is that he and his parents are shipwrecked off the African coast, where his parents then die. Adopted by apes, he grows up in the wild and grows closer to his destiny to become lord of the jungle. When more humans come to the island, however, Tarzan is forced to make some tough decisions – like whether he wants to face his destiny or return to the human world to led a “normal” life.

Funny, well-written, and easy to follow, Tarzan is a great movie for kids of all ages.
