Here’s another new featurette from Twentieth Century Fox’s new movie, Rise of the Planet of the Apes and this time we get to find out about how they cast the apes. This featurette coincides very nicely with the WETA interviews which I put up recently. Rise of the Planet of the Apes is directed by Rupert Wyatt and stars James Franco, Andy Serkis and Freida Pinto.

RISE OF THE PLANET OF THE APES combines fantastic storytelling with the next leap in Visual Effects for an emotional and action-packed motion picture experience unlike any other. Man’s arrogance sets off a chain of events that leads to intelligence in apes and a challenge to our place as the dominant species on the planet. Caesar, the first intelligent ape, is betrayed by humans and rises up to lead his species’ spectacular race to freedom and the ultimate showdown with Man. In Caesar, WETA – the Oscar-winning visual effects team behind Avatar – have created a CGI ape that delivers a dramatic performance of unprecedented emotion and intelligence.

Rise of the Planet of the Apes hits UK cinemas next Friday, 11th August. You can read Jon’s review of the movie here.
