A growing nation of genetically evolved apes led by Caesar is threatened by a band of human survivors of the devastating virus unleashed a decade earlier. They reach a fragile peace, but it proves short-lived, as both sides are brought to the brink of a war that will determine who will emerge as Earth’s dominant species.

In order to convincingly portray the weight of her character in the performance capture, Karin Konoval, wore an extra 10 pounds on each arm.

Before principal photography began, the ape actors spent two and a half weeks at an “ape camp” in a Vancouver studio run by Terry and the stunt guys. The actors were led through various exercises to become accustomed to the way the apes should move. They played games to get in the mindset of the characters.

Terry Notary, the performance capture artist behind Rocket, an ape movement specialist took on the role of many apes in the film, even playing background generic characters when needed.

This movie was shot in native 3D with an Alexa camera. Shooting in 3D requires a minimum of five extra people on the crew, and is problematic during extreme weather conditions like rain or snow, which caused the team many challenges, but the team continued their efforts with the aim of achieving a more subtle 3D look than the average blockbuster uses.

This film was primarily shot across sets in New Orleans and Vancouver, Canada.

This movie had many more visual effects shots worked on by Weta, than any of the previous instalments of the Planet of the Apes series.

Alz112, the virus that spread around the world in the Rise of the Planet of the Apes (2011), is referred to in this movie as the simian virus, which brings back references to the running time of the 1968 Planet of the Apes film.
