The new film takes place hundreds of years after the events of War for the Planet of the Apes.

In this new world, apes have emerged as the dominant species under the rule of a tyrannical king, while humans are relegated to scavenging what little remains, all the while being hunted by their ape overlords.

The Apes movies were first brought to the screen in 1968 with the Charlton Heston-led Planet of the Apes, which was loosely based on a 1963 novel written by Pierre Boulle.

The success of the original film led to the creation of a franchise that includes multiple sequels, television series, and reboots. The films explore themes of social and political commentary, as well as the consequences of scientific experimentation and societal evolution.
