What to Expect from Kingdom of the Planet of the Apes

20th Century Studios

As a new chapter in the franchise, Kingdom of the Planet of the Apes takes place many years after War For the Planet of the Apes. It is set in a world where Caesar’s leadership has led to the flourishing of ape societies, but the decline of humans.

Throughout the film, two parallel stories are told. In these stories, one ape leader aims to enslave other groups in order to gain access to human technology, and another ape seeks freedom. A young human woman will play a crucial role in his quest, but she has her own motives.

Since its debut in 1968, the Planet of the Apes franchise has been a popular part of pop culture. With each installment, fans have seen the progression of storylines, characters, and visual effects, including performance capture technology. The most recent releases in the franchise involve the Andy Serkis-starring trilogy, which began with Rise of the Planet of the Apes in 2011 and concluded with War For the Planet of the Apes in 2017. Kingdom of the Planet of the Apes will be released in theaters on May 24, 2024.

The movie has already started filming in Australia. Lachman will join a cast that includes Freya Allan, Owen Teague, William H. Macy, and Kevin Durand. Among the other stars are Eka Darville, Travis Jeffery, Neil Sandilands, Sara Wiseman, Lydia Peckham, and Ras-Samuel Weld A’abzgi.
