Move over, Mufasa, because the real king of the jungle is coming to a theater near you. Warner Bros. is bringing Tarzan back to life in its live-action adaptation, The Legend Of Tarzan.

Directed by Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows' David Yates, the movie stars Alexander Skarsgård in the titular role and Margot Robbie as Jane. The Legend Of Tarzan also boasts Samuel L. Jackson, Djimon Hounsou, John Hurt and Christoph Waltz among its cast.

Today, the latest trailer for the epic jungle adventure was released and it has just as much shirtless Skarsgård action as you could possibly dream of.

Check out the second trailer for 'The Legend Of Tarzan' below:

Meet Baby Tarzan

There will be no sing-alongs or dance numbers in this gritty version.

Welcome To The Jungle

We'll see gorgeous views of the jungle and the animal life within through the eyes of Tarzan.

A New Life

In this version, Tarzan left Africa and has been living as John Clayton III with his wife Jane.

The King Returns

When the movie takes place, he is brought "back to the Congo to serve as a trade emissary of the Parliament, unaware that he is a pawn in a deadly convergence of greed and revenge, masterminded by the Belgian, Captain Leon Rom (Waltz)."

The Jungle Fights Back

While Tarzan might have walked into a trap, he has the entire jungle ready to fight at his side.

David Yates's 'The Legend Of Tarzan' will hit theaters on July 1.
