Planet of the Apes Wiki

Urko survived from the TV series but in a different incarnation.

General Urko was the greedy and ambitious Chief of Security who worked alongside Zaius and hoped to destroy both the humanoids and the Underdwellers and take charge of Ape City himself. After hearing rumours of intelligent humanoids, Urko began a hunt during which he captured the astronaut Bill Hudson ("Bright Eyes"), who was handed over to Zira and Cornelius.
