Storyline of Planet of Apes

Planet of the Apes is a dystopian sci-fi film series about intelligent apes taking over Earth’s top position and replacing humans as the planet’s dominant species. Hence, the moniker.

To kick things off, in 1968, a big-screen adaptation of Pierre Boulle’s 1963 novel La Planète des singes, titled Planet of the Apes, was released. There were four further films in the series because of the success of the original.

Remake starring Mark Wahlberg in 2001 directed by Tim Burton was a flop, unable to achieve the same level of popularity as the original. Ten years later, in 2011, Rupert Wyatt’s Rise of the Planet of the Apes inaugurated a new reboot series, which recounted the beginnings of how modern civilisation fell prey to intelligent apes in the form of a new film.

Critics and audiences alike were blown away by the film, which generated two sequels: Dawn and Rise, both directed by Matt Reeves, and both featuring Andy Serkis in revolutionary motion-capture roles.

Release Date of Planet of Apes Season 4

The “fourth” Planet of the Apes film’s plot is largely unknown. On the other hand, director Wes Ball hinted on Twitter that the film could actually follow the tale begun in the reboot trilogy, despite reports to the contrary. “Never fear. No spoilers here, but it’s safe to say Caesar’s legacy will live on,” Ball wrote.”

As Ball has stated, it is possible that the “fourth” movie will not reboot the tale but rather take place some time after Caesar’s reign. Filmmakers can develop a storey without being constrained by continuity or canon but still honouring Caesar’s “legacy.”

Though the release of 4th season of Planet of Apes is confirmed but the release date is still a mystery.
