Planet of the Apes

With the War of the Planet of the Apes, the story of Caesar, which began in Rising, ends. Producer Peter Cherning said: “From the very beginning, we always saw this as a three-story story, beginning with the birth of Caesar, showing how he changed from an innocent hero to the smart, compassionate leader who is now being tested And can grow and become even heroic. In a world where intelligent monkeys are born, there must be a conflict with the people, and that’s where we landed. It is the apotheosis of Caesar’s story, and you see him Struggling, you see his soul. We always wanted to do that with the series, look at what inspires us and helps think about what it means to be human. “

And Scenario Mark Bomback: “With this third story, we wanted to bring Caesar to a point we thought he would never go there. It was totally surprising because nobody would think Cesar could ever feel hate for humans and yet that’s So, we are in a place where it is possible that he hates Koba, the former laboratory chimpanzee. It is terrifying for all around him because Caesar was always the moral center of the group. Area loses control, what happens to the whole society? That’s what the movie is all about. ”
