First teaser for The Legend of Tarzan lands

After images of Alexander Skarsgard and Margot Robbie in The Legend of Tarzan made the rounds yesterday, Warner Bros. has released the first official teaser trailer.

Skarsgard stars as the titular hero, who was abandoned as a baby, taken in by a group of gorillas and raised as one of their own. In the trailer, he's protecting his tribe from the offensive group of men trying to take their piece of the jungle away from them all while dealing with his overwhelming feelings for Jane, played by Robbie.

Based on the series of novels written by Edgar Rice Burroughs, The Legend of Tarzan is being helmed by David Yates, the man behind many Harry Potter films, including both Deathly Hallow movies.

The Legend of Tarzan hits theaters July 1, 2016.
