On a planet where apes talk and walk like men, and men are primitive animals, an astronaut from Earth, Taylor, crash lands
and is captured by gorilla soldiers. Thinking he is just another primitive human, the apes imprison Taylor with the beautiful
but silent Nova. With help from their chimpanzee captors, Cornelius and Zira, Taylor and Nova make a daring escape into the
Forbidden Zone, where they stumble upon the horrible secret of The Planet of the Apes.
