After watching the first official teaser for the upcoming “Rise of the Planet of the Apes” trailer, I had a really hard time believing that absolutely none of the animals featured were real.

That stunning achievement is exactly the effect director Rupert Wyatt was going for – choosing to forgo completely the use of any apes during filming. According to one release, Wyatt wanted to send a message to other studios that in this day of advanced computer animation, there’s no need to stress out real animals for filmmaking.

While details are light, we also know that Fox Studios is working with The Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund to also draw awareness to animal experimentation; a theme that features heavily in the film. Obviously, there’s a tremendous opportunity to shed light on the animals caught up in labs around the world.

More to come – but for now, check out the incredible trailer after the jump below.
