In exciting news for fans of the Planet of the Apes franchise, director Wes Ball and star Owen Teague are setting their sights on a new trilogy with their upcoming sequel/prequel, Kingdom of the Planet of the Apes. Ball recently shared a glimpse into the future of the series, suggesting that this film will set the stage for more captivating storytelling.

While he stopped short of calling it a cliffhanger ending, Ball hinted that Kingdom of the Planet of the Apes will conclude with a new door opening, allowing the possibility for future installments if the film proves to be successful. The anticipation for what lies beyond this film is already building, as fans eagerly await the continuation of this beloved franchise.

Teague, who will be leading the cast as Noa, a young ape on a journey of self-discovery in a world dominated by apes, added further intrigue. He revealed that both he and Ball have ideas for future chapters in the saga. Without giving away too much, Teague expressed excitement over the internal conflict Noa will face and the potential impact he could have on the legacy of the apes.

Delving into the plot of Kingdom of the Planet of the Apes, the film takes place several generations after Caesar's reign, with apes now reigning supreme and humans forced to exist in the shadows. As a new ape leader emerges and seeks to build an empire, Noa embarks on a perilous journey that challenges his understanding of the past and forces him to make choices that will shape the future of both apes and humans.

Directed by Wes Ball, known for his work on the 'Maze Runner' trilogy, and written by a talented team comprising Josh Friedman, Rick Jaffa, Amanda Silver, and Patrick Aison, Kingdom of the Planet of the Apes boasts an impressive ensemble cast. Alongside Owen Teague, the film features Freya Allan, Kevin Durand, Peter Macon, and William H. Macy, promising a captivating cinematic experience.

With its release scheduled for May 10, 2024, Kingdom of the Planet of the Apes breathes new life into the beloved franchise that began with Rise of the Planet of the Apes, followed by Dawn of the Planet of the Apes and War for the Planet of the Apes. This eagerly anticipated sequel/prequel embraces the opportunity to explore a future where apes dominate and humans struggle to survive. As fans eagerly anticipate the release, they can't help but wonder about the exciting possibilities and potential twists yet to come in this expanding universe.
