Richard Ridings as Buck, a Western lowland gorilla who pledges his allegiance to Caesar after he is freed by him. He was named after Buck Kartalian who played the gorilla handler Julius in the original as well as another gorilla Frank in Conquest of the Planet of the Apes. Devyn Dalton as Cornelia, a female common chimpanzee in the ape sanctuary.

Production[ edit ] Development and writing[ edit ] Inscreenwriter-producer Rick Jaffa was searching for a script idea. As Jaffa searched a newspaper articles clippingone about pet chimpanzees that become troublesome to their owners and heartbroken for not adapting well to the human environment intrigued him. As Jaffa eventually realized it fit the Planet of the Apes series, he called his wife and screenwriting partner Amanda Silver to express his ideas of such a chimpanzee eventually starting the ape revolution, and then the couple started developing the character of Caesar.
Jaffa indicated that "it's a reinvention" and if he had to pick between calling it a prequel or a reboot he would say it is a reboot: So it's really kind of hard to put a label on it. We are hopefully rebooting it. The script added other elements which the couple had researched, such as genetic engineering.
In particular, Caesar's treatment at the primate sanctuary parallels Taylor 's treatment as a captive in the original film. It's not a continuation of the other films; it's an original story. It does satisfy the people who enjoy those films. The point of this film is to achieve that and to bring that fan base into this film exactly like Batman Begins.
Caesar is a revolutionary figure who will be talked about by his fellow apes for centuries This is just the first step in the evolution of the apes, and there's a lot more stories to tell after this.
I imagine the next film will be about the all-out war between the apes and humans. After considering real apes, instead Weta Digital created the apes digitally in almost every case through performance capture. A maximum of six actors could have their movements captured, with larger ape crowds using fully digital animals animated using Weta's move library.
The Golden Gate Bridge set used both a physical set which was extended digitally, and a fully computer-generated model of the bridge that also included the ocean and nearby hills. Actor-stuntman Terry Notary guided the actors on realistic ape movement, while Weta studied the chimps in the Wellington Zoo for reference.
The digital apes also received detailed models with skeletons, muscles and nerve tissue layers for accurate animation. Cast models of apes' heads and limbs helped the texture department replicate skin details such as wrinkles and pores.
Given the difference between human and chimpanzee facial muscles, the animators tweaked the performance through a new facial muscle system adding dynamics, ballistics, and secondary motion.

As the silent performance required expressive eyes, a new eye model was made to depict both greater accuracy in muscle movement in and around the eyes, and also tears, pupil dilationand light refraction. Along with that, they used Notary to play Caesar in stunt-filled scenes such as the Golden Gate Bridge scene.
Though the plan is successful, Caesar remains behind to confront the Colonel as the facility is attacked by remnants of the military. Finding the Colonel infected by the virus from contact with Nova's doll, Caesar chooses not to kill him, instead watching him commit suicide.
The escaping apes are caught in the crossfire between the two armies while Red watches uncertainly. Caesar attempts to blow up a large fuel tank to take out the Alpha-Omega forces from behind, but he is shot with a crossbow by Preacher. Red then uses a grenade launcher to kill Preacher, saving Caesar's life, before he is killed by a soldier.

Caesar succeeds in blowing up the tank and escapes the facility as it is destroyed in a chain reaction, resulting in an avalanche that wipes out the military. The apes, carrying Nova, all survive by climbing nearby trees. They then cross the desert to find an oasis. While the other apes celebrate their new home, Maurice discovers Caesar's fatal wound.

He promises to tell Cornelius who his father was and what he did for the apes. Caesar then dies peacefully while Maurice mourns his death and the other apes look on.
Apes[ edit ] Andy Serkis as Caesaran intelligent common chimpanzee who is leader to a tribe of genetically enhanced apes. Olsson previously played Chief Hamill in Rise. Luca was previously played by Scott Lang in Dawn. Judy Greer as Cornelia, Caesar's wife.
Dalton previously played Cornelia in Rise. Aleks Paunovic as Winter, an albino Western lowland gorilla in Caesar's tribe who sided with the Colonel out of fear. In Januarythe studio announced the third film, with Reeves returning to direct and co-write along with Bomback, and Peter Chernin, Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver serving as producers.
It could be five years after the event. It could be the night after the events of where we left 'Dawn. However, with the third installment, Fox wanted to give the duo plenty of time to write and make the film. Taking advantage of this, the two bonded with each other more than before.
That is going to take us into the world of what he is grappling with. Where he is going to be thrust into circumstances that he never, ever wanted to deal with, and was hoping he could avoid. And now he is right in the middle of it.
The things that happen in that story test him in huge ways, in the ways in which his relationship with Koba haunts him deeply. The second movie was about having to rise to the challenge of being a great leader in the most difficult of times.
This is going to be the story that is going to cement his status as a seminal figure in ape history, and sort of leads to an almost biblical status. He is going to become like a mythic ape figure, like Moses. We did that to give us a tiny crack of a possibility that we could revive Koba if we wanted to. Very early on in spitballing, we realized there was nothing more to do with Koba — certainly nothing that would exceed what he had done in the last story.
But we knew we wanted to keep him alive as an idea. In playing out the reality of what happened at the end of the last film, Caesar would be traumatized by having to kill his brother.
That would have resonance, and we wanted to make sure that did not get lost. He said, "One of the first things that Mark and I did because we had just finished Dawn was that we decided to watch a million movies.Rise of the Planet of the Apes 2011 credits scene
We decided to do what people fantasize what Hollywood screenwriters get to do but no one actually does. We got Fox to give us a theater and we watched movie after movie. We just thought, 'We have to pretend we have all the time in the world,' even though we had limited time.
