The Hollywood Reporter explains the new Planet of the Apes film will be among the first of Fox's more famous titles to be redeveloped since Disney completed its acquisition of the studio.

Ball was supposed to adapt "Mouse Guard" for Disney, but plans fell threw.

It was previously revealed during a Disney investor's call that they intend to move forward with further "Apes" movies. His successful movies "Maze Runner" trilogy had small budgets and, in the end, made a total of $924 million at the global box office.

Microsoft announced the full release today, confirming all the different ways you can play it in the process. While only two of the games were available on PC, many of them were exclusive to the Xbox.

2011 marked the beginning of a trilogy of prequel films that began with Rupert Wyatt's Rise of the Planet of the Apes and continued with 2014's Dawn of the Planet of the Apes and 2017's War for the Planet of the Apes. With an evolved version of ape society which could be explored in future films (from the original two Planet of The Apes films). It seems though that Disney still has faith in Ball himself as a director and is handing what is arguably an even bigger property to him now to work with.

There have been a number of remakes over the years, with Tim Burton's 2001 attempt, starring Mark Wahlberg, Helena Bonham Carter, Michael Clarke Duncan, Paul Giamatti, and Estella Warren, failing to excite audiences. "Reeves has since gone on to helm 'The Batman". What do you hope to see out of the next Planet of the Apes film? The series grossed almost $1 billion worldwide.

Based on a novel of the same name, the original "Planet of the Apes" movie chronicles the journey of an astronaut who accidentally lands on a planet where an advanced ape civilization is ruling over primitive humans.
