Warner Brothers has given us our first look at the new ‘The Legend of Tarzan‘ movie.  The story is set to be a new take on the “Legend.”

Alexander Skarsgard who plays the protagonist Tarzan, spoke to USA Today.  Here’s what he had to say:

“It’s almost the opposite of the classic tale, where it’s about taming the beast. This is about a man who’s holding back and slowly as you peel off the layers, he reverts back to a more animalistic state and lets that side of his personality out.”


Harry Potter Director David Yates also told USA Today:

 “Tarzan needs muscles, but it’s more a leaner, longer, more vertical modern man than the square-jawed stereotype we’re used to,”


The Legend of Tarzan‘ looks to be a refreshing modern day take on the story with an amazing cast, including: Christoph Waltz, Samuel L. Jackson, George Washington Williams, Djimon Hounsou and Margot Robbie.



The Legend of Tarzan‘ opens in theaters July 1, 2016
