Trailer and White Ape image released from upcoming John Carter film

If you think you’re not a morning person, just take a look at this grumpy guy.

This image is taken from the upcoming adventure film, John Carter, which is based on the Barsoom sci-fi book series by Edgar Rice Burroughs.

The Disney Pixar production is due for release March 9, where we can expect to see John Carter along with his loyal amphibi-dog, Woola, pitted against the ferocious White Ape and other enemies.

Director, Andrew Stanton, who describes the beast as ‘a sort of oversized gorilla’, wanted to create a sense of anticipation surrounding the White Ape, making it a creature you hear about throughout the film, but do not see until later on.

The Finding Nemo and WALL-E director, worked with his co-writers, Mark Andrews (The Incredibles) and novelist Michael Chabon, to create this sci-fi adventure film, which was originally intended to be released June 2012.

The White Ape was created by artist Michael Kutsche, who designed many of the weird and wonderful characters seen in Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland. 

The film sees Taylor Kitsch (X-Men Origins: WolverineSnakes on a Plane) as the heroic John Carter, a US Civil War veteran, who is transported to the planet Barsoom (which is Mars to you and me). Here, the muscular, peck pumped hero, has to deal with all kinds of creatures and enemies on this war-torn planet, including the White Ape, who is top of the food chain.

John Carter was filmed across various locations in Utah, including Lake Powell, Wayne and Kane. We wonder how the inhabitants of earth reacts to Barsoom, a rarely filmed fictional planet? Take a look at the new trailer below:
