Trivia

Red was initially planned to be a chimpanzee. After Ty Olsson was cast, he was switched to a gorilla due to his physicality. After the species switch, VFX supervisor Anders Langlands noted that they based Red's design off a silverback named Winston from the San Diego Zoo Safari Park. See more »

Goofs

Luca rides a horse in much of the film, often at a gallop. An adult gorilla weighs 300-400 lbs. (136-181 kg.). A horse carrying that much weight wouldn't be able to walk easily, let alone gallop. See more »

User Reviews

 
Absolutely epic movie and trilogy.
27 May 2019 | by IamNiyatiJoshiSee all my reviews

War (as arguably miss-titled as it is) is once again on top of its game, with a more intense story, the effects looking better than ever, some genuine surprises and shocking moments, and the A-game acting. This trilogy has truly ended on a high note
