While he slept, Andy and the other apes were exposed to ALZ-113 by Caesar. Andy gained new intelligence from inhaling the gas. He was one of the first chimpanzees to be examined by Caesar who saw that he was now an evolved ape. Andy would join the other apes, as Caesar prepared to lead them to freedom.
- His name could be a nod to Andy Serkis, the actor who plays Caesar.
- It is unknown if Andy appeared in Dawn of the Planet of the Apes but Andy has light brown fur and in Dawn of the Planet of the Apes the only ape who has it is Grey so maybe Andy didn't make it.
- Andy and Grey were the only apes who had light brown fur.
