Tarzan | DISNEY THIS DAY | June 12, 1999

On this day in 1999, ‘Tarzan’ held its U.S. premiere at the El Capitan Theater in Hollywood. Over 2,000 fans packed bleachers around the theater where celebrities and filmmakers paraded along a 100-foot red carpet. Three city blocks were cordoned off for the occasion. After the film, the 1,000 lucky attendees were treated to a 40-minute concert from Phil Collins. They also snacked on exotic-inspired fare and petted monkeys in a jungle-clad scene.
