‘War of the Planet of the Apes’ Plot Almost Parallels to Racism; Bloody War to Take Place?
“War of the Planet of the Apes” to feature a bloody war?

The highly anticipated “War of the Planet of the Apes” is set to be released this July 14, 2017 and details about the film are scarce. However, a speculation recently made rounds which expected the film to feature a blood war between humans and the apes. Why? Read on for more details.

The way director Matt Reeves ended “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes” pleased the producers that they immediately planned for the “War of the Planet of the Apes.” And it was expected that he would tell one riveting story.

One of the expectations was that the film would feature a bloody war between apes and humans, making heavy losses on both sides, Moviepilot said.

Technology would soon be dead in the upcoming movie. This was because in the original “Planet of the Apes” story way back in 1968, actor Charlton Heston saw no power. Though humans needed power in “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes,” this won’t be a necessity for the apes.

Furthermore, apes would evolve significantly in the next film as this was the recurring theme in “Rise of the Planet of the Apes” and “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.” And when talking about evolution, the apes would be able to communicate clearly, movements becoming more like the humans, and walking would be more upright like those in the “Planet of the Apes.”

If such is the case, the “War of the Planet of the Apes” would definitely, again, feature one bloody war and hatred against each other that could be felt, which almost paralleled to issues of racism: ape race hating human race and vice versa.

However, it is obvious that only Matt Reeves and the production team knew how “War of the Planet of the Apes” would transpire. And the director said that the ending of the “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes” was intended to be that way so that they would not be limited to how they were going to do the next movie.

“I don’t want us to be boxed in this way. I think we should be left with a more open – knowing that we are going to figure out what the next story is – I didn’t want it in a way narrow our options.’ I wanted to open them up,” Reeves said via Collider.

All eyes are now on Matt Reeves for the “War of the Planet of the Apes.”
