why is this even a question. why are you people so confused?
it's a fu*king prequel. no other way around it. it happens before "Planet of the Apes".
maybe its a complete reboot and this is a "prequel" the same way the new x-men movie is a "prequel"
it can be completely seperate from the stories, like someone else said.......a completely new story because to my knowledge the original way the apes rose against the humans was the humans started keeping the apes as pets and the apes eventually just got smarter.......sort of like a slave vs master type scenario, this is different
