‘Planet Of The Apes’ Infographic Gives A Glimpse Into The Franchise’s Universe

A little confused as to how this week’s big release, Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes, fits into the franchise’s overall mythology? Well, IGN has just made that a bit easier.
The site has posted an infographic looking at the various characters that you’ve met (or in the case of Rise, will meet), and how each film relates to one another narratively (check out the infographic here below).
Now, as a fan of the franchise, this is a nice refresher leading into the new film. I haven’t gone through and watched these films in at least five or six years, and don’t quite remember how they all work together. According to this piece, Rise is (and this isn’t all that shocking of an idea) outside of the normal Planet Of The Apes universe, but still features our lead ape, Caesar, and his rise to worldwide domination.
Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes hits this Friday, and with early buzz being shockingly positive, this is looking to be one of the more surprising hits of this year’s summer slate.
