It passes all three tests.

@jon This rating is correct.

I don't remember it being explicitly mentioned in this part, but Maurice is clearly male. The fact that he was in a caring role and was voiced by a female voice actor probably misled you.

Exhibit a: The previous movies

Exhibit b: The fact that every character listing and movie description lists Maurice as male or uses male pronouns

Exhibit c: Wikipedia lists "Maurice" as a "traditionally male name"

not is wrong disagreed with the rating and said:
Maurice is female if you read into the lore of planet of the apes, you can find that she is here:
Sign language is still a form of communication the same way that an ape is a female.
