‘Rise of the Planets’ live stream from New Zealand

20th Century Fox has pulled the curtains back – giving audiences their first sneak peak at the wizardry behind the making of "Rise of the Planet of the Apes!"

Featured here in this clip are Joe Letteri and Dan Lemmon of WETA Digital, the amazing visual effects house behind "Avatar" and "Lord of the Rings Trilogy" talking about the technology being used on the upcoming sci-fi prequel. The film crew, which includes director Rupert Wyatt, will be employing some of the groundbreaking technology that was developed for Avatar, to render photorealistic apes rather than costumed actors.

The film stars James Franco, John Lithgow, Freida Pinto, Andy Serkis, Brian Cox, Tom Felton and David Oyelowo and is scheduled for release in theaters Aug. 5.
