Based upon situations and Characters from the novel By Pierre Boulle and the SHOOTING SCRIPT- May 5, 1967 of “PLANET OF THE APES”- Original Screenplay by Michael Wilson. As well as the ideas of Mort Abrahams and the screenplay’s and drafts of the movie, “BENEATH THE PLANET OF THE APES“, by Paul Dehn, December 20, 1968 and (final shooting script) April 10, 1969, as well as ideas presented the book (Beneath the Planet of the Apes), adapted from the screenplay/written by: Michael Avallone.
This is a work of Fan Fiction, a celebration of the films I adore-in Audio-for the Simians and Lost Astronauts, everywhere…
In Central City General Ursus’ gorilla troops are ready for war with their unknown enemy in the Forbidden Zone, while at the same time, the good General and Dr. Zaius discover that Cornelius and Zira are not the only chimpanzees who have stumbled onto the “dark secret” behind the rise of the simians and the fall of man…
While these dark developments are happening, the astronaut Brent and his mute companion Nova escape the simian city with Zira’s aid, only to be chased by Gorilla troops into the Forbidden Zone forcing the two human fugitives to hide in a cave holding it’s own ominous secrets. Farther off in the Forbidden Zone, in the underground city of the mutant humans, Albinia and Mendez quarrel even as Taylor painfully learns of the powers of the mutants of this diseased civilization of “Man” on this, the Planet of the APES!
