“Ape together… strong.”
In the latest Planet of the Apes trilogy, these were words Caesar and his tribe lived by. The idea of strength through unity was a consistent part of Wes Ball’s Maze Runner trilogy, so it makes sense that Disney has hired him to direct a new Planet of the Apes film. It’s unclear if Ball’s film will be a sequel to War of the Planet of the Apes, or a reboot.
Planet of the Apes is one of the many 20th Century Fox franchises acquired by Disney after the Disney/Fox merger. The latest film, War for the Planet of the Apes, swung into theaters July 2017, completing the latest trilogy, led by motion capture pioneer Andy Serkis.
