Tarzan II (also known as Tarzan II: The Legend Begins) is a 2005 direct-to-video midquel to the 1999 Walt Disney Feature Animation film Tarzan. It was released on June 14, 2005.
The film tells the story of a young Tarzan's adventure to discover who he really is. Glenn Close and Lance Henriksen reprise their roles as Kala and Kerchak from the first movie; Harrison Chad, Brenda Grate, and Harrison Fahn are the new voices for Young Tarzan, Terk, and Tantor. They are joined by new characters voiced by George Carlin, Estelle Harris, Brad Garrett, and Ron Perlman.
The film features two new songs from Phil Collins and takes place during the song "Son of Man" from the first film.
Set back when Tarzan was just a boy, this is the story of Tarzan's journey to self-discovery. When Tarzan begins to see that he is not like the other gorillas, his mother Kala assures him that these slight differences only make him stronger. But when these differences put Kala in danger, he decides everyone would be better off without him and runs away. He then finds himself in a dark desolate land called Dark Mountain where he meets a new friend who helps him discover that even though he does not possess the talents of an ape, he has his own unique set of jungle skills that make him even more amazing than any other creature so that he can finally see who he truly is.
