The core cast of Kingdom of the Planet of the Apes has been unveiled by 20th Century Studios, along with the first image from the movie, and a release date of 2024 has also been announced.
The next film in the relaunched Planet of the Apes franchise has been given an official title, and 20th Century Studios has released the first look. It is set “many years” after the events of the last Planet of the Apes sequel, the War for the Planet of the Apes.
The main cast and director of the upcoming fourth installment of the new Planet of the Apes series have been unveiled alongside the film’s first picture.
With Wes Ball helming, Kingdom of the Planet of the Apes will feature Owen Teague, Freya Allen, and Peter Macon. War for the Planet of the Apes was another film in the series that Ball directed.
An ape is shown riding a horse through a deserted metropolis that nature has taken over in the first image from the forthcoming sequel, which was released by 20th Century Studios. It appears that the upcoming movie will explore a universe that is much more similar to that in the first Planet of the Apes.
Below is the opening picture from the film Kingdom of the Planet of the Apes.
It is unclear which characters from the earlier films will be appearing in Kingdom of the Planet of the Apes because of the significant time interval between War for the Planet of the Apes and that movie. There are no previous cast members from previous chapters in the cast that has been announced thus far.
Andy Serkis, Woody Harrelson, Judy Greer, Steve Zahn, Terry Notary, and Karin Konoval will star in the series. Other cast members of the Matt Reeves-directed movie include Max Lloyd-Jones, Devyn Dalton, Michael Adamthwaite, Ty Olson, and Alessandro Juliani.
