A new Planet of the Apes movie is on the way from Maze Runner and Ruin director Wes Ball. At the time of its announcement, it wasn’t made clear if the film would be a continuation of the reboot series that begin in 2011, or a reboot of the entire franchise.
Ball has now himself confirmed on Twitter that “Caesar’s legacy will continue…” which seems to be a strong suggestion that this will be a follow-up to War for the Planet of the Apes instead of a reboot of the entire franchise. That being said, Ball’s brief statement does leave some wiggle room.
Ball’s comment came in response to a story that claimed the new movie would be a reboot that is not connected to the three films–Rise of the Planet of the Apes, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, and War for the Planet of the Apes–that were made by 20th Century Fox.
