Disney has announced details on the upcoming home video release of the hit 20th Century Studios movie, “Kingdom Of The Planet Of The Apes”, which will arrive on digital platforms and physical media this summer.

The movie is set several generations in the future following Caesar’s reign, apes are living harmoniously as the dominant species — and humans have been reduced to living in the shadows. As a new tyrannical ape leader builds his empire, one young ape undertakes a harrowing journey that will cause him to question all that he has known about the past and to make choices that will define a future for apes and humans alike.

“Kingdom of the Planet of the Apes” will arrive on digital retailers, such as Prime Video, Apple TV and Fandango at Home, on July 9th 2024, and it will also be released on physical media formats, including 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray and DVD on August 27th 2024. 

Fans can delve deeper into the franchise on 4K UHD editions with “Inside the Lens: The Raw Cut,” a full-length alternative cut with a split-screen comparison between the final cut of the film and a version with unfinished VFX with optional audio commentary by director Wes Ball, editor Dan Zimmerman and VFX supervisor Erik Winquist. The never-before-seen alternate cut gives fans a unique opportunity to see the actors’ performances before the visual effects were completed.

The 4K UHD also arrives in a collectable limited edition SteelBook with custom artwork by artist Dylan Cole. Finally, fans will have a chance to bring home the entire Planet of the Apes saga on Digital at select retailers. A special Planet of the Apes 10 film bundle will be available for $100 SRP.

The bonus features include:

  • Inside the Forbidden Zone: Making Kingdom of the Planet of the Apes: Join director Wes Ball, cast and crew as they expand the Planet of the Apes legacy for a new generation. Travel to the outdoor production in Australia, train at Ape School, and discover the practical and motion capture techniques in building a breathtaking Kingdom.
  • 14 Deleted/Extended Scenes with optional audio commentary by director Wes Ball

Currently, no streaming release for Hulu or Disney+ has been announced, but I’d guess it’ll be closer to the DVD release to encourage more people to buy or rent it digitally.
