SALT LAKE CITY (ABC4) — Kingdom of the Planet of the Apes, the much-anticipated sequel to the Planet of the Apes franchise will be entering theaters nationwide this week.

In Kingdom, we are sent centuries in the future from the previous film “War of the Planet of the Apes” and are introduced to a handful of new characters. This is a continuation of the previous three films but also pays homage to the original 1968 classic.

Patrick Beatty, ABC4’s film critic and celebrity interviewer, was able to sit down with the stars of “Kingdom” Owen Teague who plays “Noa” the main ape we follow in the film, and Freya Allan who plays the human character “Nova.”

Check out the video above for a conversation with them about the first day on set, working through the motion capture technology, and why the franchise has stood the test of time.
