The epic tale of the Planet of the Apes continues with the most-awaited fourth instalment, “Kingdom of the Planet of the Apes.” The film is about the taking over of the Earth by Apes, as depicted in its first trailer and the series is set for release on May 24, 2024.
The new Planet of Apes movie instalment released offers a fascinating glimpse into the future of the planet Earth and the evolving fate of the Simian race. Portraying an era where Apes rule the planet Earth following a devastating outbreak of the Simian Flu virus.
The film directed by Wes Ball, marks the fourth film in the reanimation of the franchise which began with “Rise of the Planet of the Apes” in 2011 and was followed by “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes” in 2014, and “War for the Planet of the Apes” in 2017.
The story of “Kingdom of the Planet of the Apes” brings us close to the classic “Planet of the Apes” scenario. In this film, the trailer portrays that apes have become the dominant species, and we get a glimpse of how humans have become less valued. All this situation would be part of the new trilogy which will explore the transformation.
In this upcoming situation, we have witnessed the Planet of Apes cast and the legacy of Caesar, the classical Ape leader performed through masterful motion-capture by Andy Serkis in the original trilogy that was initiated with “Rise of the Planet of the Apes.”
Caesar passed away after guiding his peers to a peaceful oasis and now the light must be carried forward by new Ape characters, including Owen Teague, a new addition to the series.
Behind the scenes, a changing of the guard has occurred too. Matt Reeves directed the previous three above-mentioned films, and has now ventured into the world of “The Batman.” The director Wes Ball, well known for his work on “Maze Runner, has taken the helm for this exciting new chapter.
In Planet of the Apes (newest), the Apes have evolved into a fully developed society, even taming animals, which is evident in scenes of riding horses and commanding birds. In a brutal comparison, humanity was declining and getting into a devastating state and becoming prey to the Apes in hunting excursions.
Moreover, one Ape forms a unique bond with a young human girl, carrying her on his back during a precarious mountain climb. Unlike the previous movies, in Kingdom of the Planet of the Apes, many Apes now can communicate and play significant roles in society.
Numerous Apes may still struggle with the remains of humanity’s past mistakes. They have explored the abandoned scientific facilities and military bases, covered by nature but potentially hiding potential dangers. The instalment also portrayed a warlord-like figure among the Apes, leading a fascinating rally and declaring, “What a wonderful day.”
The original Planet of the Apes film is based on elaborate Ape costumes. In contrast, the Planet of Apes newest is based on contemporary repetitions and utilises cutting-edge motion-capture technology, but the tradition is maintained. Owen Teague, the latest addition to the Planet of the Apes cast, shared his excitement by saying, “literally, a dream come true” as he stepped into Andy Serkis’ shoes.
Kingdom of the Planet of the Apes is set about several generations in the future, bridging the gap between past series and exploring the origin of the Ape religion with hidden human history along with the reasons behind the destruction of New York. Ultimately, fans enthusiastically wait for the movie to hit the screens on May 24, 2024.
