'George of the Jungle' is a 1997 live-action, family-oriented, romantic-adventure-comedy film based on the characters from the original cartoon of the same name. The film was produced by Walt Disney Pictures with Mandeville Films and originally released to movie theatres on July 16, 1997. It stars Brendan Fraser as the eponymous main character, a primitive man who was raised by animals in an African jungle; Leslie Mann as his wealthy American love interest; and Thomas Haden Church as her cowardly, treacherous fiancé.

A direct-to-video sequel, George of the Jungle 2, was released on DVD in 2003, however many of the original actors did not return for the sequel.
