WAR OF THE PLANET OF THE APES: 20th Century Fox / Weta Digital (#102)


For the first time ever, fans at New York Comic-Con will have the opportunity to experience Weta Digital’s state-of-the-art Mo-Cap technology to immerse themselves into the world of Apes. Fans will be fitted into partial Mo-Cap suits, mount a horse simulator and be mapped into their own version of the film’s “Bad Ape Chase” scene.

Fans will get the opportunity to use arm extensions like the ones used by the Mo-Cap stunt performers and train in the basics of ape-like movements. The demonstration and tutorial will be hosted by Terry Notary (“Rocket”) and Karin Konoval (“Maurice”) and fans will be picked at random to participate.

To be held Thursday 5th – Saturday 7th October (10am – 6.30pm) / Sunday 8th October (10am – 4.30pm)
