Disney Releases Trailer for Edgar Rice Burroughs Adaptation

Disney has released the first official trailer for John Carter, a film adaptation based on Edgar Rice Burroughs‘s Barsoom series. We’ve embedded the video above–what do you think?

Director Andrew Stanton helmed the project. The science-fiction movie stars Taylor Kitsch as John Carter and Lynn Collins as Dejah Thoris (Princess of Helium).

Burroughs, best known for the Tarzan novels, published a total of eleven Barsoom books. At this point, American readers can access several of the titles for free via Project Gutenberg. The Barsoom series has also spawned comic book adaptations. (via Deadline)
