Buena Vista's PR company have supplied me with the details of their upcoming release of Tarzan (U) on Region 2 DVD. There will in fact be two versions of the disc released on 4 September - both of them will retail for over £20 which is not good news.

The standard release will retail for £22.99, while the collectors edition will tip the scales at £24.99. Both versions will feature an anamorphic widescreen transfer and Dolby Digital surround sound. I'll leave it to you to decide whether or not either is worth the asking price.
