Director Wes Ball took to social media on Wednesday to announce that Kingdom of the Planet of the Apes had officially wrapped filming.


In a video shared to Twitter, Ball filmed a monitor showcasing a blue screen with motion-captured apes on it. Ball can be heard saying that “the adventure is over” while the five digital apes wave, clap, and hug one another.

The next film in the Planet of the Apes series is set to star William H. Macy, Owen Teague, Freya Allen, Dichen Lachman, and Peter Macon, among others. The upcoming film is set “many years” following the events of 2017’s War for the Planet of the Apes. After Caesar brought his people to an oasis, new ape societies have grown, while humans have been reduced to a more “feral-like existence.”

“Some groups have never heard of Caesar, while others have contorted his teaching to build burgeoning empires,” reads the description of the film. “In this setting, one ape leader begins to enslave other groups to find human technology, while another ape, who watched his clan be taken, embarks on a journey to find freedom. A young human woman becomes key to latter’s quest, although she has plans of her own.”

Kingdom of the Planet of the Apes will be written by Josh Friedman, Rick Jaffa, and Amanda Silver, the latter of whom was also a writer for Rise of the Planet of the Apes. The film will be produced by Patrick Aison, Joe Hartwick Jr., Jaffa, Silver, and Jason Reed.
