Disney is not wasting any time rebooting classic movie franchises after buying 20th Century Studios. According to the New York Post, Disney is rebooting the Planet of The Apes franchise.
Once wind got out to the fans, they were not receptive to the news.
Why would they reboot it. If they do that's just stupid. They should just set the new movie years after war for the planet of the apes. Why not expand ob the great universe that the trilogy has set up?

The last three reboot films were amazing. Don't reboot this franchise again! Especially not this soon! War for the Planet of the Apes was the perfect ending and it was released almost three years ago! https://t.co/uomc6uYelV

The original movie, which was based on a 1963 novel, was released in 1968 and starred Charleston Heston. Heston’s iteration spawned four sequels and a TV show. As you may remember, 20th Century released a prequel series starting in 2011 starring James Franco and Andy Serkis as Chimpanzee Caesar.
