The Legend of Tarzan teaser - check out the cast

Was the world waiting for a new Tarzan movie? Well tough because they've gone out and made one and it's actually looking pretty impressive.

Here's the first teaser for The Legend of Tarzan.

This is a huge movie in every sense of the word - it shot at the Harry Potter studios in Leavesden and under Potter director David Yates and has an amazing cast including Samuel L Jackson, Christophe Waltz, John Hurt and Margot Robbie.

There's also Tarzan himself, played by True Blood's Alexander Skarsgård - who looks like he might have been working out - and the cast of CG animal performers.

The teaser doesn't make much reference to it but this big screen story will also include Tarzan's life in London as Lord Greystoke where he's living with his wife Jane (Robbie).

He gets pulled back into the jungle by some nefarious business, and you'll never guess who plays the baddie.

The Legend of Tarzan is set for release in July 2016.
