Tarzan was raised from a boy in the African jungles by the Mangani apes. He subsequently was found and raised by members of the British aristocracy, only to reject the modern world and return to his beloved home in Africa.
Since his first appearance on the silver screen, Tarzan has starred in some 200 films played by such notables as U.S. Olympians Buster Crabbe and Johnny Weissmuller, the NFL’s Mike Henry, and actor Christopher Lambert.
Film Synopsis: It’s been nearly a decade since Tarzan (Alexander Skarsgård), also known as John Clayton III, left Africa to live in Victorian England with his wife Jane. Danger lurks on the horizon as Leon Rom (Christoph Waltz), a treacherous envoy for King Leopold, devises a scheme that lures the couple to the Congo. Rom plans to capture Tarzan and deliver him to an old enemy in exchange for diamonds. When Jane becomes a pawn in his devious plot, Tarzan must return to the jungle to save the woman he loves.
The Legend of Tarzan is rated PG-13 for sequences of action and violence, some sensuality and brief rude dialogue.
