The Legend of Tarzan Movie Review: Story, Star Cast, Trailer, Release Date


Tarzan a famous character of Disney has returned once again by the name “Legend of Tarzan”. This is an upcoming American action journey film made on a fictitious character fashioned by Edgar Rice Burroughs, planned for release in 2016. This film is directed by David Yates and written by Adam Cozad and Craig Brewerin which Alexander Skarsgård plays the title role of and also the cast include Samuel L. Jackson, Margot Robbie, Djimon Hounsou and Christoph Waltz.


Different reports have recommended that Legend of Tarzan might be having some production problems, as Yates has been required to split his devotion between this and the other future WB film goes by the name “Fantastic Beasts” and. WB for its last movie “Jupiter Ascending ”took a huge downfall from the box-office in the last year and after that recent failure of Pan shook the company as it definitely cost the studio probably to $150 million loss.

One thing should be considered here that there will be definite successes with the upcoming DC Comics and Fantastic Beasts films but WB will not take any chances and make sure the $180 million Legend of Tarzan doesn’t goes down like Pan-sized flop.

Appreciatively, WB has released a teaser very far from release date and this surely shows some assurance in this film. The Legend of Tarzan trailer, this one is the most prominent story scope and it is quite good actually. The appealing is quite attractive and the trailer has the impeccable mystery when it comes to the movie’s conspiracy. The new thing we can see that Legend of Tarzan is not the origin and basic story for its title character instead the story continues to a new journey but the trailer was not successful in making that difference clear.

The plot of the movie goes like that, Tarzan left the jungle and move to England but he has been asked back to the Congo to assist as a trade ambassador of Parliament. He has no clue that he has been played into a trap of greed and retaliation, planned by the Belgian. But those behind the lethal plot have no idea what they will face after Tarzan goes on leash.


Tarzan is a character that needs no introduction but the story starts after many years when Tarzan left Africa Jungles, Tarzan played by Alexander Skarsgård comes back to the Congo to serve as a trade ambassador, naive that he is really a pawn in a Belgian captain’s (Christoph Waltz) lethal plan.
