20th Century Fox has just released “Face of Caesar,” a new WAR FOR THE PLANET OF THE APES promo highlighting the incredible transformation of Andy Serkis to “Caesar.”
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.
Over the course of three films, Weta Digital has mastered the art of translating human actors to apes. The apes level of sentience has developed throughout each film and so too have Weta Digital’s techniques and toolsets. Developing some of the most advanced techniques in the industry Weta artists employ these tools to create exceptional CG characters. Check out the process below!
You never really know just how much goes into making these CGI effects into movies. The animators for War For The Planet of The Apes definitely put in some serious work on this film. Caesar looks so realistic and the way they mimic the actor’s face is truly astonishing. We definitely have high hopes for this film and are hoping we finally get to see how it all went down for the humans and gave rise to an Earth dominated by apes.
