From director David Yates, the action-adventure epic The Legend of Tarzan picks up with John Clayton, the man once known as Tarzan (Alexander Skarsgård), after he’s left the jungles of Africa behind for a gentrified life with his beloved wife, Jane (Margot Robbie). When he is invited back to the Congo under the guise of being a guest of Parliament, Tarzan quickly learns that he is a pawn in a murderous plot of greed and revenge that was masterminded by the King of Belgium’s envoy, Leon Rom (Christoph Waltz), and he will stop at nothing to protect those that he loves.

During a conference at the film’s press day, filmmaker David Yates was joined by co-stars Alexander Skarsgård, Margot Robbie, Samuel L. Jackson and Djimon Hounsou to talk about what attracted them to this version of the Tarzan story, their previous familiarity with the character, preparing for the physical aspects of the role, acting opposite CGI animals, why there’s no loin cloth, and the Tarzan call.
