New Delhi, March 7: Animated adventure movie "Tarzan 3D" is all set to release in India April 18.

The latest adaptation of Edgar Rice Burrough's classic book "Tarzan of the Apes", it is expected to be a visual delight as the movie will include special effects in 3D technology, said a statement.

Their son J.J., nicknamed Tarzan, survives. A group of gorillas discovers the boy in the wreckage and takes him in as their own. Tarzan grows up learning the harsh laws of the jungle for nearly a decade until he encounters another human being - the courageous and beautiful young Jane Porter.
