Tarzan – 2019


Washed up on the shores of West Africa, an infant boy is taken in and raised by gorillas who name him Tarzan. Apart from striving for acceptance from his gorilla father, Tarzan’s life is mostly monkey business until a human expedition treks into his troop’s territory, and he encounters creatures like himself for the first time. Tarzan’s curiosity and determination lead him to discover where he truly belongs.
