Original Story: The first images from 2016's The Legend of Tarzan film have debuted at USA Today. Directed by long-time Harry Potter helmer David Yates, the film stars Alexander Skarsgård as Tarzan with Margot Robbie as Jane.

In this updated remake, Tarzan has returned to his former life as John Clayton III (a.k.a. Lord Greystroke) with Jane as his wife. But he's sent back to the Congo at the behest of the English government, the unknowing pawn of Christoph Waltz' villain, Captain Leon Rom.

“It’s almost the opposite of the classic tale, where it’s about taming the beast,” says Skarsgård. “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.”

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