Having loved this movie, I do like that this ending wasn’t included. It leaves the movie a little more opened ended on how the next movie will play out but with this you outright know how the next would be. I like the idea of another movie that begins like this and would make the clash between the Apes and Humans a little more pronounced than it did here. The events of these movies are all leading up to both the enslavement of the human race and the apes rise to power. It feels like a genuine pre trilogy to the first Planet of the Apes and I hope that they never try to remake the film directly.
