Where to watch the entire “Planet of the Apes” saga in chronological order

The Planet of the Apes cinematic universe is far from extinct and has recently given us a new film that has been received with enthusiasm. From MFC, we present the chronological order to enjoy this saga that began in 1968 and promises to continue captivating audiences for many years to come.

“Planet of the Apes: New Kingdom”is dominating the worldwide box office, grossing more than $230 million. The film is close behind “Kung Fu Panda 4” and “Dune 2” in terms of revenue, and this success is due in part to the fact that it marks the beginning of a new trilogy within the iconic saga that began in the 1960s and continues to be popular today.


Planet of the Apes, 1968 film.

Before reviewing the list, it is important to note that the three prequels exploring Caesar’s origin and rise are not linked to the original pentalogy. We could say that a timeline was rebooted between the two, which does not culminate in the iconic moment of Charlton Heston cursing in front of the Statue of Liberty in New York.

  1. Origin of the Planet of the Apes (2011): Will Rodman, a scientist, develops a cure for Alzheimer’s that increases the intelligence of a chimpanzee named Caesar. Caesar eventually leads an ape revolt against humans after being mistreated in an animal facility.
  2. Rise of the Planet of the Apes (2014): A decade after a virus has decimated the human population, a colony of apes led by Caesar lives in peace. However, an encounter with a group of surviving humans jeopardizes peaceful coexistence and sparks a conflict.
  3. The War of the Planet of the Apes (2017): Cesar and his apes are forced into a war with a human army led by a brutal colonel. The film culminates in a final battle that will determine the future of both species.
  4. The Kingdom of the Planet of the Apes (2024): Generations after the last film, the plot follows a young ape who embarks on a harrowing journey under the rule of a tyrannical new ape who is building his empire. This journey leads the young protagonist to question everything he knows about the apes’ past and make crucial decisions that will determine the future of the species. 
  5. The Planet of the Apes (1968): An astronaut, George Taylor, crashes on an unknown planet where he discovers that intelligent apes are the dominant species and humans are primitive and enslaved.
  6. Back to the Planet of the Apes (1970): A rescue mission arrives on the planet of the apes in search of Taylor. Astronaut Brent finds Nova, Taylor’s companion, and discovers a subway city inhabited by mutant humans with telepathic powers who worship a nuclear bomb.
  7. Away from the Planet of the Apes (1971): Three intelligent apes, Cornelius, Zira and Dr. Milo, escape from the planet in a spaceship and travel back in time to present-day Earth. At first they are greeted with curiosity, but soon the government considers them a threat.
  8. The Ape Rebellion (1972): In the near future, domesticated apes have replaced pets and personal servants, until their continued mistreatment causes an evolved ape (Roddy McDowell) to start a daring revolt that could change the roles of humans and apes forever.
  9. Conquest of the Planet of the Apes (1973): is the final chapter of the science fiction film series. In this chapter, a tribe of human mutants affected by the atomic bomb attempt to make life miserable for the peaceful ape tribe. The story is told mainly in the form of flashbacks, with the opening and closing set in the year 2670.

From this list of films, we removed Tim Burton’s “Planet of the Apes” (2001), as it formed another totally separate timeline that was never continued due to the film’s box office failure;
