Which is actually very cool information. However within the article, there’s additionally a rundown of the plot, which we don’t assume has been broadly reported earlier than.
Beforehand, all that was formally introduced was that the movie “[picked] up a few years after the conclusion of 2017’s War for the Planet of the Apes.” However now, the commerce provides the next:
Many apes societies have grown from when the Moses-like Caesar introduced his individuals to an oasis, whereas people have been lowered to a feral-like existence. Some teams have by no means heard of Caesar, whereas others have contorted his educating to construct burgeoning empires. On this setting, one ape chief begins to enslave different teams to seek out human know-how, whereas one other ape, who watched his clan be taken, embarks on a journey to seek out freedom. A younger human girl turns into key to latter’s quest, though she has plans of her personal.
