Will ‘Planet of the Apes: New Kingdom’ get a sequel? This is what the director says

After the success of “Planet of the Apes: War” in 2017, this new installment continues to explore the dystopian world dominated by primates, expanding the franchise based on the work of Pierre Boulle that is sweeping the box office around the world.

Set 300 years after the events of Caesar, Planet of the Apes: New Kingdom presents a world where the apes have taken complete control, relegating humans to the status of wild animals, who are sickened by a virus that has taken them ability to speak and reduced them to their most primitive form.

The acclaimed film ‘Planet of the Apes: New Kingdom’ has left fans eager for more

In the film, Noa befriends Mae, a human who can talk, to reach an abandoned military hangar, although they do not have the same goal. As while the ape wants to save his tribe, the young woman wants to get in to get a very important item and then destroy all traces of the place.

In its first weekend of release, the film was a hit, so much so that director Wes Ball was mooted for a possible sequel or even a trilogy, like the one starring Andy Serkis a few years ago.

“I have a lot to think about. I think there is room (…) of course. But it all depends on the story and the script. So we’ll see where it goes,” Ball said, as reported by Sensacine.

During the press tour, “The Hollywood Reporter” website asked Ball about the possibility of directing the sequel to “Planet of the Apes” and the live-action “The Legend of Zelda.”

“Yeah, hopefully, I’ll be able to do both. That’s the truth, and we’ll see if that’s possible or not,” Ball admits. “It really depends on how well this movie does, but I’ve tried not to put too many eggs in this basket, so we’ll see how it goes.”

Rick Jaffa, producer and writer of the film, spoke to the same outlet about the future of this franchise.

“We really feel (Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver) have set the stage for at least two more movies with these characters. But we’ll see. “A lot also depends on public reaction,” he said.
