'The Legend Of Tarzan' production features Tarzan wearing pants rather than a loincloth in the African jungle scenes

This is the second time Ella Purnell and Samuel L. Jackson work together, earlier they had worked on yet to be released feature Miss Peregrine's Home For Peculiar Children.

Alexander Skarsgård revealed that he had to obtain the Tarzan physique twice for the film.

The first Tarzan movie had to get a cinema release since Disney's highly successful animated version in 1999

Alexander Skarsgård transformation was carried out in two major phases - the bulking and the cutting phase where he was put on a diet devoid of sugar, gluten, wheat, dairy and alcohol leading up to the start of filming.

Alexander Skarsgård conceived his characterization of Tarzan, very much to that of a superhero.

'The Legend Of Tarzan' marks the second film with Christoph Waltz and Samuel L. Jackson as part of the same cast, who had previously appeared together in Django Unchained.

The initial draft of the film was loosely based on two original Edgar Rice Burroughs novels - 'The Return of Tarzan' and 'Tarzan and the Jewels of Opar'

As part of the promotion for the film at the 2016 MTV Movie Awards, Alexander Skarsgård presented an award without his pants wearing just a shirt, jacket and tight white underwear, showing off his muscular legs that he developed for the role of Tarzan

By the time filming began 10 days later, Skarsgård turned up on set 'completely cut & shredded with a clearly defined full eight-pack of abs

Director David Yates was so amazed by the images of the African locations provided by the location scouts of Warner bros. that he hopped on a plane a see things for himself

The movie will be released on the same day after 30 years that Jerry Weintraub founded Weintraub Entertainment Group

Alexander Skarsgård, in the process of getting into Tarzan shape, spent 4 months training non-stop in an "intense and all-consuming" workout regime.

Henry Cavill, Tom Hardy and Charlie Hunnam were considered for the role of Tarzan.

David Yates asked Margot Robbie to punch Alexander Skarsgård while directing their sex scene.

Alexander Skarsgård revealed that one of the main reasons he took the role of Tarzan was to impress his father, who is a major Tarzan fan.

Alexander Skarsgård said his biggest fear in taking in the role was that his little brother, aged 7 years, looks up to Tarzan as 'his ultimate hero'

Samuel L. Jackson previously appeared in The Avengers, opposite Stellan Skarsgård, Alexander's father

Guillermo del Toro, Stephen Sommers, and Craig Brewer were working on the project before David Yates signed on to direct

Captain Rom is based on Clayton from the 1999 Disney animated musical film adaptation of Tarzan

This film is dedicated to the memory of Jerry Weintraub, as he died of a heart attack on July 6th, 2015

Jessica Chastain was originally attached to play Jane but after the movie got delayed she dropped out and Emma Stone had turned down the role of Jane

The film is based on the Dark Horse Comics.

Olympic swimmer Michael Phelps was in talks to play the role of Tarzan.
