    Back in December, Wes Ball signed on to take over the Planet of the Apes franchise. And ever since then, fans have been curious about how his new movie will tie into the previous three entries in the rebooted series. Critics and audiences famously responded well to the new trilogy that began with Rise of the Planet of the Apes in 2011. However, since the Apes brand now falls under the Disney umbrella following the studio’s Fox acquisition, many fans have expressed concern that Ball’s film will hit the reset button on the franchise once again. Fortunately, Ball himself is insisting that this won’t be the case.

    Ball took to Twitter to respond to a ComicBook.com article suggesting that his Planet of the Apes movie would, in fact, be a reboot. At first, he expressed disappointment with the website for not reaching out to him for a comment. But he ultimately confirmed that he’ll continue the story laid out by directors Rupert Wyatt and Matt Reeves before him.




    Andy Serkis’ Caesar memorably laid down his life at the end of War for the Planet of the Apes in 2017. Because Serkis’ performance as the apes’ leader was a big part of what made the new films successful, Ball faces a difficult task in carrying on without him. However, it’ll be interesting to see what he eventually comes up with.

    Ball’s Planet of the Apes film is still without a release date.

    Good news. Now, they can finally address the astronauts who were lost in Rise of the Planet of the Apes.

    This is completely unnecessary but I can’t say I’m not interested in what direction they’re gonna take.

    I have a feeling Andy Serkis will come back as a descendent of Cesar as the new lead of these movies that fills in the gap between the last movie and the OG Planet of the Apes.

    Apparently the director also made The Maze Runner films which I'm not a big fan of. :skip:

    I said in a previous thread they should explore the time when some Apes began adopting more human like society traits and those who wanted to do something different.

    Internal strife instead of animal vs man.
