It hurts to admit this, but I’m really proud of our events team for taking over an event that means so much to all of us at Rooster Teeth. RTX Austin has somehow gotten even bigger and better despite the fact that I stepped down from overseeing it. In fact, this year is shaping up to be our biggest, best RTX ever. We have already announced tons of exciting events, guests, and panels, but today I have the special honor of talking about one of our most exciting guests/events/panels.


Wait for it… 

Andy Serkis, star of War for the Planet of the Apes, will be a keynote speaker at RTX Austin 2017 in a special panel hosted by Gray Haddock and Kerry Shawcross! You might also know him as Gollum and Snoke, among many other roles.

But wait, there’s more. We are also hosting a special screening of War for the Planet of the Apes at 7:00 pm on July 7 at the Paramount Theater. That’s right – RTX attendees can see it before it hits theaters this summer!


Hold up, though, because there’s even more. Serkis and four-time Academy Award-winning Senior VFX Supervisor Joe Letteri will also host an exclusive Q&A after the screening! All of this is completely free for RTX 2017 attendees – all you need is your RTX Austin 2017 badge. (VIP attendees get priority admittance, by the way.)


If you want to get in on this, single-day and weekend passes for RTX Austin 2017 are still available at, starting at just $35.00.



This was all my idea and I remain the true king of RTX.


I forget, is it PPS or PSS?


Oh, I remember now.
