The animators that brought this memorable movie to life.

   Glen Keane - Supervising Animator
Glen Keane is the supervising animator for the character Tarzan in Disney's Tarzan animated film.  Other characters he has done for the Disney studios include Ariel (The Little Mermaid), The Beast (Beauty and the Beast), Aladdin (Aladdin), and Pocahontas (Pocahontas) .  Keane never started out to becoming an animator.  At age 19 he enrolled at CalArts to pursue a career as an editorial cartoonist, but his portfolio was sent to the school of film graphics by mistake.  He decided to give animation a try and it has been a love relationship from the start.  After completing Pocahontas he decided to take a one year break and moved his family to France. In 1996 Disney called him on board to work on Tarzan, and Keane agreed to join the team.  He faithfully studied the original story written by E.R. Burroughs for inspiration in the character designing of Tarzan.  "Burroughs describes him as being able to spring twenty feet across the forest tops or drop twenty feet at a stretch," Keane recalls.  "No human could do that but an animated Tarzan certainly could."
