Today, 20th Century Studios has released the first trailer and teaser poster for Kingdom of the Planet of the Apes, the upcoming film set in the world of Planet of the Apes. It features a whole new generation of apes and humans as the apes have become the dominant species on Earth.

The last three Planet of the Apes films have been slowly building up to this moment. From Rise of the Planet of the Apes to War for the Planet of the Apes, Caesar has transformed from a pet to a leader of apes as the human population dwindles.

The teaser trailer gives us a taste of the new apes and humans, and it’s shaping up to resemble the original Planet of the Apes film starring Charlton Heston.

Kingdom of the Planet of the Apes hits theaters on May 24, 2024.
