A Live Action Tarzan Remake Is On The Cards At Disney

The studio continues its strategy of turning its animated characters into flesh and blood beings.’ Hercules’, ‘The Little Mermaid’, ‘Robin Hood’, ‘Mulán 2’ … To these expected titles could be added ‘Tarzan’.

As Movieweb advances, Disney is starting to work on a live-action of the film directed by Chris Buck and Kevin Lima in 1999 and which won the Oscar for Best Original Song thanks to Phil’s unforgettable ‘You’ll Be In My Heart’ Collins.

Apparently, the project is in a very primitive phase, so there has been no official confirmation nor have many details come out.

And, of course, not a clue as to who will be the protagonist of the film, although surely they already have in mind names like Chris Hemsworth or Henry Cavill, which fit perfectly with the character.

It is also unclear if its premiere would be through the usual circuits or directly at Disney +.

Based on Edgar Rice Burroughs’ novel, ‘Tarzan’, Disney’s 37th classic, it is the first animated version of the story and one of the representatives of what has become known as the brand’s rebirth stage.

It tells the story of an orphan boy who, after being adopted by a gorilla, grows up in the jungle among animals until he meets Jane, a member of an expedition that will help him discover who he really is.

Tony Goldwin and Minnie Driver lent their voices to the protagonists in the original version, which also featured Glenn Close or Rosie O’Donnell.

For those unfamiliar with the original Disney movie, he followed the orphan Tarzan, who grows up in the African desert under the care of gorillas. But when a British expedition enters the jungle, Tarzan meets Jane, whom he recognizes as human, and falls in love with her.

Mandeville Films, the producer responsible for the 2017 live-action version of Beauty and the Beast, is producing the remake alongside Josh Gad.

According to Deadline, it is rumored that he could also play the role of Quasimodo, but no formal announcements have been made about the cast.
