Tarzan is back (what, you’ve been waiting for him, right?) in director Reinhard Klooss’ CGI animated movie “Tarzan”. Kellan Lutz, who will be battling Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson for the title of best Hercules in 2014, fronts the film as the voice of Tarzan, though from the looks of it — er, the sounds of it — he mostly just grunts and roars. Which makes sense. Isn’t Lutz’s best assets his muscles? You don’t actually get to see those muscles in an animated movie, so it’s probably best to limit his dialogue. Just sayin’. Guy isn’t exactly De Niro, you know?
Anyways, take a look at the first trailer for “Tarzan”, not to be confused with the live-action movie that’s been in the works for a few years now.
Tarzan and Jane Porter face a mercenary army dispatched by the evil CEO of Greystoke Energies, a man who took over the company from Tarzan’s parents, after they died in a plane crash.
Featuring the voices of Kellan Lutz, Robert Capron, Jaime Ray Newman, Spencer Locke, Brian Bloom, Mark Deklin, and Brian Huskey.
The UK gets it next year on May 2nd. No word on a Stateside release date. You’re probably looking at VOD/Blu-ray here. The CGI is a tad suspect.
