The cast of War for the Planet of the Apes
With the exception of Andy Serkis, who plays Caesar, the franchise's central character, the new series of Apes movies have featured a rotating line-up of guest stars and supporting players. WAR FOR THE PLANET OF THE APES continues this trend with Woody Harrelson and Steve Zahn joining the cast in key, but unspecified roles. Judy Greer returns as Cornelia, along with a number of the motion-capture performers who played supporting characters in DAWN OF THE PLANET OF THE APES, such as Karin Konoval and Terry Notary. There's been no mention of Toby Kebbell anywhere so far, so it may be relatively safe to assume that Koba really did meet his demise at the end of the second movie and audiences shouldn't expect a Lazarus-like resurrection for the third installment. On paper, the cast of WAR FOR THE PLANET OF THE APES doesn't look quite as strong as the second movie, but the strength of the APES movies comes from the motion-capture actors and the possibility of a grander scope makes this one of the most anticipated genre films of 2017 (outside of STAR WARS EPISODE VIII).
