The upcoming Planet of the Apes movie planned by Disney will not be a remake or reboot of the original trilogy, despite initial reports. Instead, it will be a proper sequel.
Director Wes Ball posted on Twitter, hit out at those false claims, and instead confirming that the new film will “continue” the hugely popular reboot film series, which debuted in 2011.
This certainly supports the former Maze Runner director’s initial desire to do the 2011 film trilogy justice after the new movie’s announcement last year. The original trilogy saw Andy Serkis’ Caesar die valiantly in 2017’s War for the Planet of the Apes.
Disney CEO Bob Iger also confirmed that the new movie will be a sequel, following the film’s announcement.
No title, cast or release date has yet been pinned on the new Planet of the Apes movie.
Marion has a serious RPG addiction. Sometimes it bleeds into real life; he forgets to sleep because he thinks he has a Witcher’s body clock. Forgive him in advance if he suddenly blurts out terms such as “Mind Flayer” and “Magic Missile”, because never once does he stop thinking about his next Dungeons & Dragons game.
