Proximus is overpowered and meets his demise in the battle. Noa then becomes the king of The Eagle Clan. On the other hand, Mae acquired the SatCom Key in hopes of helping human civilizations strive again. Mae brings the key to a woman who is living in a bunker with other humans. The key can be used to contact other humans on the planet through the satellites. 


There’s palpable tension between Noa and Mae as they discuss Caesar's dream of humans and apes coexisting in harmony. The final scene shows Mae holding a gun behind her back while conversing with Noa. 

Kingdom of the Planet of the Apes’s Plot

Kingdom of the Planet of the Apes revolves around an ape from The Eagle Clan named Noa. He is in search of his family who disappeared after getting kidnapped by a group of insurgent apes. While searching for his family, Noa crosses paths with a human woman named Mae. The two are suddenly captured by Proximus Caesar’s army.

Proximus’s goal is to open an underground vault using clans and troops that he has gathered. We later find out that this vault is the bunker made by the US military and government for humans to take shelter during the Simian Flu. This journey with Mae makes Noa question everything he has learned growing up.
