lotDoes anyone else think the apes in the new Legend of Tarzan look more like gorillas than apes?

It’s clear in the books that the Great Apes that Tarzan grew up with were not gorillas. There were two words in Tarzan’s ape-lexicon that distinguished between the two different species. The apes were called the Mangani, while gorillas were referred to as Bolgani. Tarzan was a Tarmangani–a white ape.
