Conquest for the Planet of the Apes sees Caesar (Roddy McDowall) lead an ape revolution that seemingly sews up the fate of humanity. So where could a sequel possibly take the story after the climactic turn of the previous film? As we continue our journey through the nine-film Planet of the Apes franchise, Battle for the Planet of the Apes gives us our answer.
Actor, author, and playwright John Weagly joins the show to help us break down this finale to the original five-movie run of Planet of the Apes. We'll discuss whether Battle is a fitting finale to Caesar's story, how successful the movie is at keeping things fresh with a tighter budget, and McDowall's indelible contribution to the Planet of the Apes franchise.
