True Blood’s Alexander Skarsgard is giving us jungle fever. Warner Bros. and USA Today have released the first photos from The Legend of Tarzan live-action film, and we want more.

Again, I will raise the question why a man raised by apes in the jungle has no beard, but we don’t want anything covering Alexander Skarsgard’s flawless mug.
“It’s almost the opposite of the classic tale, where it’s about taming the beast,” Skarsgard told USA Today. “This is about a man who’s holding back and slowly as you peel off the layers, he reverts back to a more animalistic state and lets that side of his personality out.”
The Jane to Skarsgard’s Tarzan is none other than our resident girl crush, Margot Robbie.
No word on if Elsa and Anna from Frozen will make an appearance as Tarzan’s long lost sisters, but we’re in for this regardless.
The Legend of Tarzan hits theaters July 1, 2016.
