This article was originally published on SFFGazette.com. Head there now for the latest Kingdom of the Planet of the Apes updates!

Kingdom of the Planet of the Apes begins swinging into theaters later this evening, but should you stick around once the credits start rolling? 

If you want to see the names of all the people who worked hard to make this movie a reality, then yes, but if the MCU has taught us anything, it's that there are often extra scenes waiting for us to set up future stories (and despite being billed as a standalone movie, Kingdom does indeed lay the groundwork for a new trilogy). 

However, we can confirm today that Kingdom of the Planet of the Apes does not have a post-credits scene

While we know many of you will be disappointed, if you do wait [SPOILER ALERT] you'll hear the distinct noise of an ape, suggesting a character whose fate is left ambiguous at the end of the movie may yet live to fight another day (we'll be back with more on that soon). 

The only Apes movie to feature a post-credits scene was Rise of the Planet of the Apes in a sequence teasing the spread of Simian Flu. Dawn of the Planet of the Apes featured what sounded like Koba's battle cry, only for the next instalment to reveal he had indeed died. 

Talking about possible sequel plans, director Wes Ball recently said, "I don't want to say we end on a cliffhanger, but we certainly end on a new door opening, essentially, that will allow us to keep going, you know, if we wanted to. If we were successful enough to."

In Kingdom of the Planet of the Apes, director Wes Ball plans to breathe new life into the franchise with a story set several generations in the future following Caesar's reign. Apes are now the dominant species living harmoniously and humans have been reduced to living in the shadows.

As a new tyrannical ape leader builds his empire, one young ape undertakes a harrowing journey that will cause him to question all that he has known about the past and to make choices that will define a future for apes and humans alike.

Starring Owen Teague (IT), Freya Allan (The Witcher), Kevin Durand (Locke & Key), Peter Macon (Shameless), and William H. Macy (Fargo), the movie opens in theaters on May 10, 2024.

Do we know how much chimp nudity is in this film? Trying to see if it's okay to take my nephew.

Ummm.... Mal... Asking for a black guy to star in a gorilla movie is not a great move.

So is this supposed to be connected to the Charleton Heston version or are they going to remake that film?

@Forthas - I wouldn't be surprised if we see reimaginations of that movie and Beneath in the next two movies in the Kingdom trilogy

@Forthas - As is the case with the previous films, this is a continuation of a reboot. It is not connected to the original Apes films.

The only movie that made sense to have a post-credit scene was Rise because it showed us how the virus that made the Apes smarter while being lethal to the humans was gonna spread in the airport. Since then there really hasn't been any significant after/post-credit scene so I'm okay with that.

BTW Kingdom is already certified fresh on Rotten Tomato. It's another good and solid installment in the franchise.

I'm glad Wes Ball proved me wrong, I wasn't convinced he could do it after his ok endeavours with the first 2 Maze Runner films. Glad that it all worked out.

@NinnesMBC - I wasn't convinced on Ball for the same reason.

But I wonder if Ball will return or they go with a different director for the sequel? There are similarities with the previous trilogy.

Rise of the Planet exceed expectations both critically and commercially, and some of those low expectations was due to Rupert Wyatt directing, who did not return for the sequels.

I'm not saying Ball definitely should or shouldn't return. But I wouldn't be surprised if the studio sniffs around to see which other directors might be interested.

@DanielPlainviewsGhost - I could see that , particularly if he gets busy with his Zelda movie.

@NinnesMBC - never seen The Maze Runner films but I’m glad it worked out well for Ball it seems since he had his doubters (myself included to an extent)

It’s at 84 from 104 now but that’s still very good!!.

I'm getting tired of them. The MCU ones are not worth it anymore besides Beast in The Marvels. They've been pointless. I'm leaving after the mid credits scene for D&W and watch the final one online.

Has there ever been any sort of official confirmation or even an acknowledgement that these movies will one day tie into the classic Charlton Heston trilogy. Im cool with it being its own thing but was really curious if the end goal is to establish the story of the original, with the time displaced astronauts.

Maybe Proximus Caesar lives by the end of the film?.

However if it is like Koba at the end of Dawn , might just be a fun insert and that’s all.

and

Suburb of the City of the Kingdom of the Planet of the Apes
