Kingdom of the Planet of the Apes: Well, there goes the planet. It’s time to return to the Planet of the Apes. It did not take Disney long to bring out the prized possession of 20th Century’s biggest franchise. The new movie is a continuation of the most recent Planet of the Apes trilogy that began with 2011’s Rise of the Planet of the Apes and concluded with 2017’s War For the Planet of the Apes. Kingdom of the Planet of the Apes is set many years after War for the Planet of the Apes – the final film of the franchise’s previous trilogy.
This film starts an all-new chapter in the “Planet of the Apes” saga, picking up many years after the conclusion of 2017’s “War for the Planet of the Apes.” The screenplay is by Josh Friedman (“War of the Worlds”), Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver (“Rise of the Planet of the Apes”), and Patrick Aison (“Prey”). Joe Hartwick Jr. (“The Maze Runner” trilogy), Rick Jaffa, Amanda Silver and Jason Reed (“Mulan”) are the film’s producers. Peter Chernin and Jenno Topping are the executive producers.
Damn you all to hell! No word yet if the Statue of Liberty is making an appearance.
Kingdom of the Planet of the Apes is expected to premiere in theaters in 2024.
