The Planet of the Apes franchise is coming back with the Maze Runner’s Wes Ball set to direct. The Apes franchise will be the first Fox franchise that will be rebooted since the Disney acquisition.
While Wes Ball’s Maze Runner franchise may have struggled critically, it did decently at the box office. Overall the franchise made nearly a billion at the worldwide box office. Ball also has experience with heavy VFX which will be needed for a franchise like this.
It makes sense that Disney would want to bring back this franchise as Andy Serkis’ trilogy made nearly two billion at the box office. It is unknown if this new movie will be a reboot or an extension of the previous trilogy.
