I suppose that they could do it as an alternate world story. A planet where apes, such as chimps, gorillas and bonobos evolved to be the dominant species instead of humans. Although, I think that might have before, elsewhere... Come to think of it, it has. Monkey Planet the Pierre Boulle book that inspired all the POTA films classic and rebooted, is about exactly that.

Just one slightly OT question. I finally got to see Dawn of the Planet of the Apes last night. The apes, especially the chimps, seem to be extremely fast, agile and strong. I have never seen an ape in real life - a few species of monkey, but not apes. Are they really that fast and agile? I realise that the film makers could have enhanced their abilities for dramatic purposes, and to make them seem scary.
