Tarzan will soon be swinging out of his treehouse at Disneyland to make room for a re-themed attraction that will see a new Disney character move into the 80-foot-tall man-made tree in Adventureland.

Disneyland will reimagine Tarzan’s Treehouse in Adventureland with a new theme and backstory, according to Disneyland officials.

The treehouse experience isn’t going away, but the Tarzan theme won’t return when the attraction reopens, according to Disneyland officials.

The walk-through attraction’s new theme, backstory and reopening date have not yet been announced.

One possible overlay for Tarzan’s Treehouse could be an attraction themed to Disney’s “Encanto” animated film. In the movie, young Antonio Madrigal has a magical rainforest bedroom where he can communicate with animals. ShopDisney sells a $30 Antonio’s Treehouse play set based on his bedroom in “Encanto.”

The Academy Award-winner for best animated feature tells the story of the magical Madrigal family that lives in an enchanted place called Encanto hidden in the mountains of Colombia.

Disney CEO Bob Chapek and “Encanto” composer Lin-Manuel Miranda have already discussed possible theme park attractions based on the hit animated movie, according to The Wrap.

Disney has big plans for “Encanto,” which Chapek describes as the company’s newest film franchise — suggesting a sequel could be in the works.

Disneyland has added a Mirabel Madrigal meet-and-greet character, “Encanto” float to the returning Main Street Electrical Parade and nightly projection show on the facade of It’s a Small World set to the Billboard chart-topping “We Don’t Talk About Bruno” song.

Demolition of the entrance to Tarzan’s Treehouse will begin on Monday, April 18, according to Disneyland officials.

Tarzan’s Treehouse has been closed and clad in construction tarps since September — an unusually long time for regular maintenance or seasonal refurbishment.

The 150-ton evergreen with 300,000 vinyl leaves even has its own tree species name — Disneydendron semperflorens grandis.

The Disneyland attraction first opened in 1962 as Swiss Family Treehouse just a few years after Disney released the “Swiss Family Robinson” movie in 1960. The Swiss Family theme was swapped for a Tarzan backstory in 1999, the same year the Disney animated movie debuted.

Tarzan’s Treehouse features several Easter Eggs that pay homage to the attraction’s original Swiss Family backstory.

Hong Kong Disneyland also has a Tarzan’s Treehouse on Tarzan’s Island — the park’s version of Tom Sawyer Island. No word yet if Tarzan’s Treehouse will get a new theme at Hong Kong Disneyland.
