The first Kingdom of the Planet of the Apes video has been released for the upcoming sci-fi movie ahead of tomorrow’s trailer release. The film is directed by Wes Ball and will be released in theaters on May 24, 2024.
“Some groups have never heard of Caesar, while others have contorted his teaching to build burgeoning empires,” reads the synopsis of the film. “In this setting, one ape leader begins to enslave other groups to find human technology, while another ape, who watched his clan be taken, embarks on a journey to find freedom. A young human woman becomes key to latter’s quest, although she has plans of her own.”

Who is involved in the new Planet of the Apes movie?
The next film in the Planet of the Apes series is set to star William H. Macy, Owen Teague, Freya Allen, Dichen Lachman, and Peter Macon, among others. The upcoming film is set “many years” following the events of 2017’s War for the Planet of the Apes. After Caesar brought his people to an oasis, new ape societies have grown, while humans have been reduced to a more “feral-like existence.”
Kingdom of the Planet of the Apes will be written by Josh Friedman, Rick Jaffa, and Amanda Silver, the latter of whom was also a writer for Rise of the Planet of the Apes. The film will be produced by Patrick Aison, Joe Hartwick Jr., Jaffa, Silver, and Jason Reed.
