In a world where the lines between the wild and the ruins of civilization blur, “Kingdom of the Planet of the Apes” emerges as not only a continuation, but an evolution of a storyline that has drawn in audiences for over a decade.

Immerse Yourself into The Kingdom of the Planet of the Apes

In an open conversation with Ape Nation, director Wes Ball teases an immersive experience for viewers. Including the option to watch the film with raw clips, that offer an original perspective that allows viewers to observe the actors in their performance capture suits, confirming the careful craft that continues to motivate the film’s creation.

Set hundreds of years after the heartbreaking finale of 2017’s War for the Planet of the Apes, we are introduced to a planet that has changed dramatically. Ape societies survived here, branching out into many cultures far from Caesar’s place of calm. With that being said, humanity has shrunk to near-primordial stages, leaving only a shadow of its past power. However, within this duality, the seeds of a new conflict appear, as one ape leader’s greedy ambitions endanger the fragile balance that has thrived.

Mae’s Mission Means More for the Apes

In this fire of growing empires and enslaved tribes, two destinies collide: Noa, an ape who witnesses his clan’s captivity, and Mae, a young woman whose voice breaks the silence of suppressed stories. Mae, played by Freya Allan, is more than just a source of hope for Noa; her ability to talk, unaffected by the Simian Flu virus, represents a bridge across rivaled realms, testing Noa’s notions of freedom and alliance.

The script penned by Josh Friedman, Rick Jaffa, Amanda Silver, and Patrick Aison, promises a plot that goes beyond the survival of its successors. The film, shot in Sydney, serves as a visual marvel. It also explores themes and topics such as leadership, legacy, and liberation.
