Speaking with MTV, Andy Serkis, was asked about the setting for the upcoming third film and revealed that the third film may not be the conclusion to the franchise. He stated: "It's very, very early in where we choose to drop anchor in the next film. It could be five years after the event, it could be the night after the events of where we left 'Dawn,' so it's very difficult to know where the story is going right at this moment because it's being written as we speak. I know that part of the desire for 'Matt Reeves' to do this next movie is about continuing the enjoyment of seeing these apes evolve. So I don't think we're going to see a situation where we're jumping....It might be three films, It could be four. It could be five. Who knows? But the journey will continue. It might not necessarily be summarized or completely fulfilled in this next one. The point being, eventually we know that we're going to end up back at 'The Planet of the Apes,' but whether it's this film or not, I don't know."
Andy Serkis, Terry Notary, and Karin Konoval are the only actors to be in all three of this Planet of the Apes trilogy. Serkis as Caesar, the chimp leader or the apes, Notary as Rocket, a chimp who is one of Caesar's most trusted & faithful followers, and Konoval as Maurice, an orangutan that like Rocket is one of Caesar's most trust & faithful followers.
According to director Matt Reeves, the name of the group of rebelling humans are the Alpha & Omega, a reference to the bomb the mutants worshiped in Beneath the Planet of the Apes. The logo on their helments and flag matches the original logo on the bomb.
In October 2016, it was announced that a fourth Planet of the Apes film is already being planned.
Director Matt Reeves is only the second person to return to direct a PoTA film (the first being J. Lee Thompson).
In the first film, Rise of the Planet of the Apes, Caeser could only utter a few words, most notably "No!" In the second film, his vocabulary had greatly increased, able to speak in nearly full sentences with syntax and grammar, but still with a rough tone amd cadence to his voice. In this film, he is able to speak nearly identical to what a human can produce, indicating his growth into personhood.
This will be Matt Reeves second directorial film in the rebooted Planet of the Apes franchise. The first being Dawn of the Planet of the Apes (2014).
This will be the third installment in the newly rebooted Planet of the Apes franchise.
The actor who played Caesar's son Blue Eyes has been changed from Nick Thurston to Max Lloyd-Jones
