Disney’s “Kingdom of the Planet of the Apes”

”Kingdom of the Planet of The Apes" is the upcoming science fiction action feature from 20th Century, currently directed by Wes Ball in Australia, as the first in a new 'POTA' film franchise, loosely adapting elements from the novel "Monkey Planet" (1963) by French author Pierre Boulle:

“…after the events of 2017's ‘War for the Planet of the Apes’, many apes societies have grown from when ‘Caesar’  brought his people to an oasis, as humans have been reduced to a feral-like existence.

 “Some groups have never heard of Caesar, while others have contorted his teaching to build burgeoning empires." 

 "In this setting, one ape leader begins to enslave other groups to find human technology, while another ape, who watched his clan be taken, embarks on a journey to find freedom. 

“And a young human woman becomes key to the quest, although she has plans of her own."
