Tarzan 2

Synopsis: 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.

It's the Zugor!

The Monster?

Hey, hey, hey!

No fair catching a ride.

Hello? What do you

think you're doing?

Whatever it is,

you sure ain't doing it too good.

Is it still coming?

Hey, wait a minute.

There's no such thing

as the Zugor.

He's nothing but

an imaginary figment.

Terk was pretending so

I could practice running for my life.

I'm too slow.

If I don't get faster,

something terrible

is gonna get me.

You're the worst ape ever.

If the Zugor ever did come down

from Dark Mountain,

- you'd be digested by now.

- I bet I could catch you.

- Could not.

- Roar!

- Missed me.

- Roar!

Missed again.

It's sad, really.

This is a prescription

for disaster.

Oh, the power to be strong

And the wisdom to be wise

All these things

will come to you in time

On this journey

that you're making

It's you who'll reach the peak

Son of Man, look to the sky

Lift your spirit

Set it free

Someday you'll

walk tall with pride

Son of Man

A man in time you'll be

Come on, you can make it.

You can make it.

You can make it.





Yay-oh, yay-oh


Son of Man, look to the sky

Watch out!

Someday you'll walk

tall and proud

Tree! Tree! Tree!

Son of Man's a man

for all to see

- Are you all right?

- Are you hurt? Let me see.

What is the matter with you?

He's only a baby.

I don't want you

playing with that one.

He's going to get

somebody hurt.

- Poor Kala. He's a menace.

- To all of us.

Nice. Almost wiped out

half the family.

It's Elephant Falls

all over again.

Ooh, I can just hear Kerchak.

"You almost killed someone."

"He's only a child.

He'll learn."

"He'll never survive

in the jungle.

He can't run,

he can't climb.

He's a danger to us all.

Now, I think I'll grunt


Hey, pal.

You know I'm kidding, right?


I wasn't making fun of you.

I was making fun of Kerchak.

Come on, time for bed.

Let's see now...

There. How's that? Comfy?

It's great, Mom.

I've got your nose.

- I've got your toes.

- Mom, stop.

I'm too big

for "nose and toes."

Uh-oh. I think one is missing.

Maybe you're hiding it in...


- Mom, stop.

Stop. No, really...

Mom, stop it.

Tarzan, what's wrong?

- Tarzan?

- I'm not a good ape.

I can't outrun the Zugor.

The Zugor?

You know there's no such thing.

That's just an old ghost story.

But if he was real,

he'd get me.

I'm too slow.

I'll tell you what.

If the Zugor ever comes for you,

I'll save you.

You can count on it.

But, then you'd be in danger

because of me.

Everyone would be better off

if I just wasn't around.

Come with me.

I want to show you something.

This tree used to stand here

all by itself.

What happened to it?

One day there was a big storm,

and the wind pulled on the tree,

until finally it blew over.

But now, look over here.

This is the strongest tree

in the jungle,

because it has many trunks,

all working together,

lifting the leaves into the sky.

And look, the trunks

are all different.

Some are thin, some thick,

- some twisted, some straight.

- That one looks fat.

It does, doesn't it?

But they all help

make the tree strong,

strong enough

to weather any storm.

Like a family.

- Like our family?

- That's right.

You need your family, Tarzan,

and your family needs you.

- Nobody needs me.

- I do.

And I always will.

Now, where is that missing toe?

Mom, I've got all my toes.

No, I don't think so.

Maybe it's here. Or here...

Mom, stop.


Look out for

the big scary teeth.

Run! Run! It's the Zugor!

Quit playing around, Tarzan.

So, what are we waiting for?

Jim Kammerud

Jim Kammerud (born 1960) is an American director, writer, producer and animator, best known for his work with the Walt Disney Company. Kammerud attended the Ohio State University in the mid-1980s. There he developed his cartooning style by working as an editorial cartoonist, as well as creating the comic strip "It's Working", for The Lantern, the University's student newspaper. Also on staff at The Lantern at the time was Jeff Smith, later known for the comic book Bone. After college, while still living in Columbus, Ohio, Kammerud and Smith formed the Character Builders animation studio. There, Kammerud began working on Rover Dangerfield and worked as an animator and storyboard artist for Bébé's Kids as well as Space Jam. He became involved with Disney as sequence director for the additional animation in Pocahontas II: Journey to a New World and later joined to direct and design the new characters in The Little Mermaid II: Return to the Sea. His next film as director was 101 Dalmatians II: Patch's London Adventure, when he also worked on part of the screenplay. His second film where he worked on the screenplay was Tarzan II, in addition to producing the film, and his most recent project, The Fox and the Hound 2 is his first film without co-direction from Brian Smith. He also worked on The Aristocats II, which has since been shelved after the decision to drastically reduce the number of direct-to-video sequels made by Disney. He has also done storyboards for many non-Disney animated films with Toronto-based animation/animatic studio House of Cool, including Gnomeo & Juliet, Ice Age: Continental Drift, Escape from Planet Earth, Epic, The Nut Job and Rio 2. In 2009, Kammerud was featured in The Cartoonist, a documentary film on the life and work of Jeff Smith, creator of Bone. more…
