    New ‘Planet of the Apes’ Movies Planned at Disney, Will Be a Continuation of the Saga

    Word is that more Apes films are coming and are planned to be a continuation of the Serkis series as opposed to a reboot.

    I’m not opposed. War wasn’t without its problems but it’s ending, while the end of an era, didn’t feel like an untouchable end like say Toy Story, there was definitely room to continue.. even if it’s without Caesar. Matt Reeves is currently busy with The Batman but hopefully they get him back one day.

    Not totally against this. Just have Cornelius be the main character, continue to have great mo-cap visuals and performances, keep Andy Serkis in some capacity(any which way will do). Should work out fine.

    But, they definitely shouldn’t tone down the violence. Cause let’s face, while the MCU films were decently violent, Fox’s films were definitely above that level by fraction.

    Yeah, seems like the best plan. Not sure how well it will do without Reeves, but I’m willing to give it a try.

    If it fails, they can just reboot it again.

    Not sure what they could do that the recent trilogy didn't already accomplish. I guess the next step is just remaking the original story following the events from the Rise trilogy.

    Well, we all know how much they love making remakes... so naturally the next stop is just remaking the original movie in the context of this one, I guess?

    If they keep going with this I really want to see a Planet of the Apes. Part of the fun of the original was you had a whole ape world and society structure. Do some world-building and this could be a good thing.

    Ok, I'm not against it. Don't disappoint me, Disney.

    Other note, sure are a lot of Disney related threads today.

    More Maurice!

    I can actually kinda see them doing this, since they've already established the disappearance of the Icarus (Taylor's ship) back in "Rise".
