Tarzan (1999)

Lossy audio ensures that Tarzan isn't the king of the swingers on Blu-ray

This Blu-ray debut for Disney’s take on Edgar Rice Burroughs’ ape-man is every bit as frustrating as that for The Fox and the Hound. Visually it fares much better, with a beautifully presented AVC 1.78:1 1080p encode, but this disc can’t even muster a lossless soundtrack, only offering a 'lossy' Dolby Digital 5.1 mix – a cardinal sin for a modern movie released on Blu-ray.

Add to that the basic menus and limited extras (a solitary deleted scene, a Phil Collins’ music video and Disney Pedia featurette) and its hard to shake the feeling that this disc has been sitting in the Disney vaults waiting for release for a number of years. Which leaves up hoping that the studio might decide to revisit the film on Blu-ray with lossless audio and all of the extras from the old Special Edition DVD at some point in the future.
