Matt Reeves ("War for the Planet of the Apes") hält weitere Sequels, auch ohne Caesar (Andy Serkis) für denkbar, verrät der Regisseur im Gespräch mit Screen Rant. Ein Abschied von Caesar bedeutet nicht automatisch Abschied von Serkis. Der Schauspieler könne auch andere Rolle spielen, dank des Motion-Capture-Verfahrens.
"It's all one universe and Caesar has a very important part in ape history. We think of him being the seminal figure in ape history like Moses but as the idea, that tapestry, extends outward, there are all kinds of new characters in this story that you could absolutely follow. It's really about this trajectory that all of the apes are on, that all of the characters are on, and have been very intentionally centered around Caesar, but the universe is meant to be larger than just him as well."
