Walt Disney Studios has debuted the first trailer for the upcoming film “John Carter” online. The sci-fi film is directed by Andrew Stanton (best known from his work at Pixar) and is based on a classic novel by Edgar Rice Burroughs.

The film is an action-adventure set on the mysterious and exotic planet of Barsoom (Mars). It tells the story of war-weary, former military captain John Carter (Taylor Kitsch), who is inexplicably transported to Mars where he becomes reluctantly embroiled in a conflict of epic proportions amongst the inhabitants of the planet, including Tars Tarkas (Willem Dafoe) and the captivating Princess Dejah Thoris (Lynn Collins). In a world on the brink of collapse, Carter rediscovers his humanity when he realizes that the survival of Barsoom and its people rests in his hands.
