In the rebooted continuity, the apes’ rise to intelligence and eventual dominance over humanity was triggered by an experimental treatment for Alzheimer’s disease. An ape named Bright Eyes was exposed to the drug ALZ-112, leading to her displaying extraordinary intelligence, which she passed on to her son, Caesar.

However, while the drug initially showed promise for treating Alzheimer’s in humans, it ultimately had a devastating effect. An improved version, ALZ-113, inadvertently caused a deadly virus known as the Simian Flu, which wiped out more than half of the human population. The virus also mutated, rendering humans mute and removing their higher cognitive abilities, paving the way for the apes to rise as the dominant species.
