Continuing the character’s (as well as his simian brethren) march toward achieving full sentience is only natural, especially if Reeves wants his series to server as a bridge to where the original Planet of the Apes starts (even if only as a spiritual precursor).
Some fans, of course, would rather the series get to that point sooner rather than later, hoping for a direct Planet of the Apes remake to eventually take place. Given how well received Reeves’ Dawn of the Planet of the Apes was (grossing over $700 million worldwide and maintaining a 90% on Rotten Tomatoes), most viewers will be willing to give the director the benefit of the doubt when it comes to War for the Planet of the Apes and its intended direction.
