Owen Teague is spearheading the cast of Kingdom of the Planet of the Apes, which also includes Freya Allen, Peter Macon, Eka Darville, Kevin Durand, Travis Jeffery, Neil Sandilands, Sara Wiseman, Ras-Samuel Welda’abzgi, Lydia Peckham, William H. Macy and Dichen Lachman. The film is set years after the events of 2017’s War for the Planet of the Apes, which ended with the death of Caesar.

The first film in the Planet of the Apes franchise was based on a novel by Pierre Boule. It was released in 1968 and followed Charlton Heston as an astronaut who crash-landed on a planet ruled by intelligent apes, only to discover he was actually on Earth several years after it had been devastated by a nuclear war. The highly-successful film resulted in several Planet of the Apes sequels, a TV series and 2001 remake by Tim Burton before Fox rebooted the franchise with a trilogy that started with 2011’s Rise of the Planet of the Apes, featuring Andy Serkis.
