The series continues for the Planet of the Apes with the 4
The news is excellent for “Planet of the Apes 4”. The next movie is moving forward and will start its production in a month for a release in 2024. To wait, a first visual has been revealed.
The series was launched from the novel Planet of the Apes (1963) by Pierre Boulle was born the vast franchise we know today. From there, the first movie with Charlton Heston was released in 1968. The latter played an astronaut who lands on a planet where apes have evolved and dominate while humans have been enslaved. It is only at the end of the film that we understand that it is not another planet but a near future.
The success is enormous, and four other films were made in 1973. Then, it is only in 2001 that Tim Burton proposed a remake, which would not give place to any sequel. And this, despite a solid result at the box office (more than 360 million receipts worldwide).
2011 will be the year of renewal, beginning with a new trilogy with Planet of the Apes: Origins. There we discovered how the apes started to evolve (becoming more intelligent and conscious) before fleeing the human world to regain their freedom. An effective franchise relaunch with the ape Caesar (Andy Serkis) at the center.
He is the hero of the two sequels directed by Matt Reeves – before he tackles The Batman (2022) -, The Planet of the Apes: The Affrontation (2014) and The Planet of the Apes: Supremacy (2017). It is in particular, thanks to the writing of this compelling and empathetic character and the directing proposals of Matt Reeves, that the trilogy was a success.
The saga could have ended there, given the very good conclusion proposed by Matt Reeves. But Disney, which had not yet been able to take advantage of the franchise since the takeover of Fox, decided otherwise. A new movie is on the way, and we already knew who was directing it. It is Wes Ball, the man behind the Labyrinth trilogy.
New elements have just been revealed via Twitter (at the end of the article). The official account of the Planet of the Apes movies first offers a title. Kingdom of the Planet of the Apes in VO. Then, we learn that the production will start next month for a release planned in 2024.
Finally, on the casting side, Owen Teague (That), Peter Macon (The Orville) and especially Freya Allan (Ciri in The Witcher) will be the stars of this movie. And to make us salivate, we are offered a nice first visual showing a monkey on a horse in a ruined world where nature has taken over…
