TARZAN To Get a New Non-Disney Animated Film Adaptation

Edgar Rice Burrough's classic character Tarzan is getting a brand new animated feature-film adaptation, and he will be swinging at you in 3D! The German production company Constantin Films is currently prepping the 3D animated version of the story.

Constantin recently acquired the rights to all of the Tarzan novels written by Burroughs, so it looks like they are planning a whole series of Tarzan films starting with the first book, Tarzan of the Apes

There aren't many more details on this new Tarzan adaptation other than it being produced by Robert Kulzer (Resident Evil: Afterlife and The Three Musketeers), and the film is being planned as an English-language film. There's currently no writer or director attached to the project, but since Kulzer has worked with Paul W.S. Anderson a few times, there may be a small chance he could end up taking on the project. Only time will tell at this point.

I think it would be awesome if they developed a great looking stylized film that was inspired by the Frank Frazetta Tarzan art. Should be interesting to see how this turns out.

What do you think about a new 3D animated Tarzan movie?
