The story in "Escape" and the next 2 films afterwards form an ALTERNATE timeline. This upcoming film could be considered as a new take on the original (unseen) chain of events.

The timelines are confusing in the series, but I thought the ape uprising was begun by Caesar (Milo), son of Cornelius and Zira after coming back in time.

The new movie looks to be about man creating intelligent apes.
