Empire Magazine February 2024: KINGDOM OF THE PLANET OF THE APRES World Exclusive

You saw the Rise. You witnessed the Dawn. You survived the War. Now, years after the end of the prequel-reboot trilogy that explored how Earth was overtaken by damn dirty apes in the first place, another story is about to begin. Get ready to enter the Kingdom Of The Planet Of The Apes – a bold new adventure in one of sci-fi’s longest-running cinematic sagas, with a fresh generation of primate protagonists, a totally overhauled world, and a tone all its own. Caesar’s revolution is over; a new kingdom awaits.

This month’s issue of Empire ventures into a wild new ape era, taking a world-exclusive look at what Kingdom Of The Planet Of The Apes has in store. Inside, we speak to director Wes Ball, stars Owen Teague and Kevin Durand, writers Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver, and more – getting the first word on the film’s overgrown post-apocalyptic world, meeting the heroic Noa and villainous Proximus Caesar, delving into the evolutionary leaps in performance-capture technology since the previous trilogy, and much more besides. All that, plus it’s packed with brand new images from the film, never-before-seen concept art, and behind-the-scenes looks from the shoot. It’s overflowing with a bananas amount of Apes goodness – and you’ll absolutely want to get your stinking paws on it.
