. The films immediately passes into the future and the young girl has grown up to be Charlize Theron and the gorilla has grown to be 15′ tall and weighs 2000 pounds. The two are best friends who play together. When poachers again appear, a representative (Bill Paxton) of a California wildlife refuge convinces her to transfer the gorilla she has named Joe Young to the refuge.
