Will the ‘Legend of Tarzan’ follow the exact story line of Burroughs?
“Legend of Tarzan” is something that always entice our imagination. The character of “Tarzan” was debuted in 1912. Since then there were many films and TV series made on “Tarzan.” Though it cannot be said that all the movies and TV series made on “Tarzan” is good yet there are some which depicted the original Burroughs’ story. Now it’s time to see whether the upcoming movie “Legend of Tarzan” adhere to original storyline created by Edgar Rice Burroughs in 1912.
Cinelinx says that the recently released trailer of “Legend of Tarzan” shows a version of story which is neither based on any of Burroughs’ novel on Tarzan nor on any earlier films. Rather the story line seems to be based on the comic book series produced by Dark Horse Comics.
Although “Tarzan” is an iconic character yet not much good movies are made on it. Majority of the movies lack luster so couldn’t live up to the books. The reason behind this below average quality of “Tarzan” movie is because most of these versions of stories shown in the movie is far from original storyline created by Burroughs in 1912. Even the most popular version produced by MGM was criticized by Burroughs. According to him the film didn’t show an accurate adaptation of the character. Now, the point is the upcoming movie on Tarzan need to keep all these things in mind to make it better. They need to take all the best things of the novel which made “Tarzan” so popular among readers of all time and utilize it in live action form. It becomes a responsibility of the film maker to find out the factor that works for most of the super heroes and utilize that for “Tarzan.” “Tarzan” has all the enticing characteristics that other super heroes have but they are need to be present in proper way.
Movie News Guide has already reported that the new “Legend of Tarzan” has casts like Alexander Skyguards and Margot Robbie in the lead role. The trailer shows that in this new movie the storyline focuses more on romance between Tarzan and Jane rather than on Tarzans’ adventure. The promo has been released in this month and the film is about to release on 1st July, 2016. Now, it’s time to watch which marketing strategy will be taken for upcoming “Legend of Tarzan” to make it a big hit in the theatre on 2016.
