Planet of the Apes feels like it's the most underrated of all the mainstream science fiction franchises in entertainment. Except for the iconic lines and twist ending of the original film, no one ever mentions the other four films in the series. Hell, no one ever mentions the animated series Return to the Planet of the Apes, either. When 20th Century Studios began to reboot the series in 2011, pretty much every movie in the trilogy received decent critical acclaim and a healthy box office return. And yet, it feels like the series doesn't garner the same support as Star Trek, Star Wars, or even Dune.
However, it looks like the Planet of the Apes IP is going to get another chance to earn its respect with a new sequel. According to Deadline, the cumbersomely titled Kingdom of the Planet of the Apes will star Freya Allen, and the film's first image is the featured image for this article.
20th Century's next installment in the Planet of the Apes franchise is a go and has found its new star. Sources tell Deadline that Freya Allan is set to star the newly named Kingdom of the Planet of the Apes. Deadline reported last month that Owen Teague was tapped as the lead ape of the pic, and insiders add that Peter Macon has also joined the cast. Production is set to start next month with Maze Runner helmer Wes Ball directing.https://deadline.com/2022/09/planet-of-the-apes-the-witchers-freya-allen-1235130196/
