|Rise of the Planet of the Apes |

* The name of Tom Felton's character Dodge Landon is a reference to the characters Dodge (Jeff Burton) and Landon (Robert Gunner), Colonel Taylor's (Charlton Heston) fellow astronauts.
* The orangutan character befriended by Caeser in prison is named Maurice after actor ~Maurice Evans~, who played the orangutan Doctor Zaius.
* The name given to Caesar's mother is "Bright Eyes" due to the coloration in her eyes caused by the ALZ-112 virus. "Bright Eyes" is the name given to Taylor (Charlton Heston) by Dr. Zira (Kim Hunter).
* A news headline reports that the "Icarus" is the first craft headed to Mars. This is one of the fan-proposed names of Taylor's (Charlton Heston) craft, and refers to the Greek myth which cautions against overreaching ambition.
* Dodge Landon speaks two of Charlton Heston's most famous lines from the original: "It's a madhouse! A madhouse!" and "Take your stinking paws off me you damn dirty ape!"
