The iconic “Planet of the Apes” franchise returns this year with a new chapter, aptly titled “Kingdom of the Planet of the Apes.” And boy, does the first trailer paint a thrilling picture! Released recently, the trailer offers a glimpse into the world decades after Caesar’s reign, where apes are the dominant species and humans live in the shadows.
Gone are the days of desperate fight for survival. The apes have established a flourishing society, led by a new, ambitious ruler. However, tensions rise as a tyrannical leader emerges, threatening the fragile peace between humans and apes. The trailer hints at a young ape who questions everything he knows, potentially setting the stage for a journey that could redefine the future of both species.
While the iconic characters of Caesar and his generation may be gone, “Kingdom of the Planet of the Apes” introduces a fresh cast of apes and humans ready to carry the torch. Owen Teague takes the lead as the titular ape, joined by Freya Allan, Djimon Hounsou, and Peter Dinklage in pivotal roles.
