Caesar's Transition in the Planet of the Apes Trilogy

"We've incorporated elements from Conquest of the Planet of the Apes, in terms of how the apes begin to revolt, but this is primarily a prequel to the 1968 film...Caesar is a revolutionary figure who will be talked about by his fellow apes for centuries..." - "Rise of the Planet of the Apes" screenwriter Rick Jaffa (2010)
