The first trailer for The Legend of Tarzan, starring Alexander Skarsgård and Margot Robbie, has arrived. The film is based on Edgar Rice Burroughs’ book and looks to be a darker portrayal of the Disney classic. Christoph Waltz as Captain Rom and Samuel L. Jackson as George Washington Williams also feature in the film.

The trailer, meanwhile, gives us a snippet of Tarzan’s backstory and beginnings. The main storyline, however, follows Tarzan’s return to the jungle after getting used to life in London.

Enjoy the trailer above and look for the film to hit theaters on July 1, 2016.
