SRP $29.99 1.78:1(16:9) DOLBY DIGITAL/DTS 5.1 BUENA VISTA

DISNEY has been releasing many "straight-to-dvd" sequels over the years. Some have been mediocre at best. But, a few have been quite entertaining, and  "TARZAN 2: The Legend Begins" is a fine example.  The story is very simple and any adventure/suspense scene has been structured with the "G" rating as its driving force, but it offers great fun for the targeted young viewers, without boring adults in the process.

DISNEY has added some great quality voice talent here, with Glenn Close standing out the most. Phil Collins' new score isn't as memorable as the one achieved with the original film, but it's still quite good.

DISNEY has presented a 1.78:1 aspect ratio with 16:9 enhancement.  The image is sharp and slick throughout. Colors are extremely vibrant and always impressive. 

BUENA VISTA has included a DOLBY DIGITAL 5.1 mix as well as a DTS 5.1 mix.  While both offer a variety of surround/discrete effects, the DTS offers overall better bass and clarity. Dialogue is always intelligible and free from distortion.

There are two kid's games, one offering trivia while watching the actual film. The featurettes are ho-hum.
