Unlike the Disney version, Constantin Film and Ambient Entertainment bring a fresh, modern spin on Edgar Rice Burroughs's Tarzan of the Apes in Reinhard Klooss's 3D animated film Tarzan with Kellan Lutz (The TwilightSaga) providing the voice and motion-capture performance for the jungle hero. Also in the cast is Spencer Locke (Resident Evil films) as Jane Porter and Trevor St. John as William Clayton, the CEO of Greystoke Energies who sends a mercenary army to eliminate Tarzan and Jane.
While in a remote part of Africa exploring a mineral cache in a mysterious cave, entrepreneur JOHN GREYSTOKE and his wife ALICE are killed in a tragic helicopter crash, leaving their three-year-old JOHN, JR. to fend for himself. Rescued by KALA, a gentle ape, the traumatized child is brought up by a band of mountain gorillas as one of their own, learning the ways of the wild as he grows into a strong and indepdendent young man known as TARZAN. At 14, Tarzan first encounters another human: JANE PORTER, a pretty and intrepid teen visiting Africa with her naturalist father. His contact with a creature so like himself leaves him unsettled and yearning for more.
The gorilla tribe's longtime leader dies and is succeeded by a brutal silverback named TUBLAT, who settles an old score by driving Tarzan out of the group. As Tarzan wanders alone, he stumbles on the wreckage of the helicopter, where he unknowingly triggers a signal to his late father's company. CLAYTON, a ruthlessly ambitious executive at Greystoke Industries, hires Jane and her father with a greedy scheme that will destroy the entire ecosystem. Jane, hoping to derail the plan, reconnects with Tarzan and becomes a target for both Clayton and Tublat. Facing deadly challenges from man and beast, Tarzan must use his jingle intuition and his human intellect to save his home and the woman he loves.
A spectacular animated safari into a vibrant and exotic landscape, TARZAN 3D is a gorgeously rendered, action-packed journey through a magnificently imagined world.
The theatrical release date in Germany is October 10. You'll find two teaser trailers embedded below.
