A new sneak peek has been released by IMAX for Warner Bros’ upcoming adventure The Legend of Tarzan. The film stars Alexander Skarsgard as Tarzan and Margot Robbie as Jane.
The new trailer shows us the origins of Tarzan. We see him as an orphaned child picked up by his adopted mother Kala, and taken in by the apes. Tarzan is raised by them as one of their own and we see a quick montage of the child swinging along the apes in the jungle before the trailer cuts to the present timeline.
The story is considerably and more dark and mature take on the characters created by Edgar Rice Burroughs than what the audience is probably used to see with the 90’s Disney movie. The movie looks absolutely gorgeous for the most part, though one can certainly hope that the CGI is more polished in the final product.

Here’s the official plot synopsis:
It has been years since the man once known as Tarzan (Skarsgård) left the jungles of Africa behind for a gentrified life as John Clayton III, Lord Greystoke, with his beloved wife, Jane (Robbie) at his side. Now, he has been invited back to the Congo to serve as a trade emissary of Parliament, unaware that he is a pawn in a deadly convergence of greed and revenge, masterminded by the Belgian, Captain Leon Rom (Waltz). But those behind the murderous plot have no idea what they are about to unleash.
