20th Century Fox has released a new featurette for the upcoming War for the Planet of the Apes.
The new featurette recaps Caesar’s journey through the trilogy since the hunt for a cure to Alzheimer’s Disease led to the downfall of humanity in Rise of the Planet of the Apes. The conclusion of the trilogy finds the apes now left without a choice to fight after a ruthless Colonel (Woody Harrelson) leads humanity into a war to take back the Earth from the Apes.
You can watch the new “Legacy” featurette below.
The film stars Andy Serkis, Woody Harrelson, Judy Greer, Steve Zahn, Karin Konoval, Amiah Miller, Ty Olson, and Alessandro Juliani. Here’s the official synopsis:
In War for the Planet of the Apes, the third chapter of the critically acclaimed blockbuster franchise, Caesar and his apes are forced into a deadly conflict with an army of humans led by a ruthless Colonel. After the apes suffer unimaginable losses, Caesar wrestles with his darker instincts and begins his own mythic quest to avenge his kind. As the journey finally brings them face to face, Caesar and the Colonel are pitted against each other in an epic battle that will determine the fate of both their species and the future of the planet.
War for the Planet of the Apes hits theaters July 14, 2017.
