And now we come to the end… After the surprise success of “Rise of the Planet of the Apes” and its sequel “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes,” Fox is capping off the prequel trilogy with “War For the Planet of the Apes.”

The featurette above features the breakthrough motion capture technology used in the film. Over the past 15 years, Andy Serkis has been at the forefront of motion capture characters since he appeared as Gollum in the “Lord of the Rings” trilogy and “The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey.” Now we’ll watch him take on Caesar for the final time.

Following the events of Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, Caesar and his ape colony are embroiled in a battle with an army of humans. When the apes suffer heavy losses, Caesar wrestles with his darker instincts as he resolves to avenge his kind. The battle puts Caesar against the humans’ leader, a ruthless Colonel, in an encounter that will determine the fate of their species and Earth’s future.

The new movie stars Andy Serkis, Woody Harrelson, Steve Zahn, and Judy Greer.

“War For the Planet of the Apes” hits theaters on July 14.
