Tarzan 'Toon Trailer Swings In
Avatarzan?

19 October 2013  |  Written by James White  |  Source: Constantin Film (Via DailyMotion)

While Warner Bros.’ take on Edgar Rice Burroughs’ vine-swinging hero Tarzan isn’t so much soaring through the jungle as crawling through elephant dung along the ground, Constantin Films’ animated version is already at the trailer stage. Take a look at the first full promo. 



Kellan Lutz, Spencer Locke, Mark Delkin, Jaime Ray Newman and Brian Bloom are among those who have been performance captured and had their voices recorded for this new 3D ‘toon, with Reinhard Klooss in the director’s chair.

The plot doesn’t so much take liberties with the Tarzan story as brazenly heist a blend of Avatar, FernGully, Pocahontas and more and add it to the essential narrative of the boy raised by apes. James Cameron in particular will notice similarities to the antagonists’ plan to mine a mountain of precious fuel material that resulted from the crash of a meteorite eons ago.

Our hero will have to fight to save his beautiful jungle home and all its inhabitants while slowly falling for Jane Porter (Locke). Can nature battle mankind’s inhumanity? We’re going to guess yes. The film is out here on January 24.

Think I'll stick with the Disney Version. This looks like a poor computer game cut scene. More
