The Legend of Tarzan is an American action adventure film drawn upon the fictional character created by Edgar Rice Burroughs, starring Alexander Skarsgård in the lead role.

Working for the first time with director David Yates, Wayne McGregor was the Movement Director on the film. In addition to an all-consuming training regimen, Skarsgård worked closely with McGregor on the physicality of Tarzan, investigating the movements and posture of a character who carries himself as an upper-class Englishman yet embraces his wilder side when he returns to his Congo home.

Released in 2016, The Legend of Tarzan is dedicated to producer Jerry Weintraub, who died on 6 July 2015.
