Reinhard Klooss' animated take on the classic Edgar Rice Burroughs character swings to Blu-ray as a Wal-Mart exclusive this August.
In an early announcement to retailers, Lionsgate is working on 'Tarzan: The Legend Lives' for Blu-ray on August 5.
Based on the 'Tarzan' stories created by Edgar Rice Burroughs, one of the most classic coming of age stories of all time is now completely re-imagined for a new generation in stunning CGI-animation. In its initial theatrical release the film has grossed over $35 million globally.
During an expedition to a remote African jungle, the Greystoke family's helicopter crashes, leaving one survivor: the young boy J.J., nicknamed Tarzan. Raised by gorillas, Tarzan lives by the laws of the jungle - until he encounters another human being, the courageous and beautiful Jane Porter. For Tarzan and Jane, it's love at first sight - and the beginning of a thrilling adventure - as Tarzan uses his instincts and intellect to protect his jungle home and the woman he loves.
The combo pack will feature 1080p video, lossless 5.1 soundtrack, and supplements include: "Behind the Scenes with Kellan Lutz and Spencer Locke", "Becoming Gorillas", and "The Making of Tarzan" featurettes.
Suggested list price for the Blu-ray/DVD/UltraViolet combo pack is $35.99.
