There is good news from the planet The Monkey Franchise: Hollywood director Wes Ball is currently working on a new part. Ball also seems to have an idea of how to refresh the line. We tell you what we know so far about the upcoming blockbuster. With the acquisition of Disney's 21st Century Fox, many well-known film series also passed to the mouse company. In addition to Predator, Die Hard, The X-Files and Alien, these also include the popular Planet Der Affen films. The series started in 2011 with Planet The Monkey: Prevolution, a new trilogy that ended in 2017. As was recently announced, another part is now to appear. A director has already been found for him: Wes Ball, who has worked for the science fiction series Maze Runner, among others.
Above all, fans ask themselves the direction in which Ball Planet the monkey wants to steer. Should the latest trilogy continue or is something completely new awaiting us? So far the answer to this is not clear. On Twitter, however, Ball assured that he appreciated the original films of the 60s and 70s. He would also like the new trilogy very much. "We are working on something that will be a really good chapter for the franchise."
In 2017, the new films ended with Planet Der Affen: Survival. In the film we see the death of Ceasar (Andy Serkis) after he found a new country for his people. This is exactly where the new film could begin and tell the story of Caesar's son Cornelius. It will be interesting to see whether Ball follows this approach or whether we can expect another reboot instead.
