Although Disney’s had access to it extraterrestrial And predator franchises Since acquiring 20th Century Fox in 2019, the company has only recently started operating the two licenses. Last year the pretty excellent one was released prey, while a new one extraterrestrial Movie (out of don’t breathe director Fede Alvarez) and tv show (out of Legions Noah Hawley) are both in the works. But as it turns out there’s at least one other project that’s been quietly brewing for both of them…it just doesn’t sound like we’ll ever get a chance to check it out.
During an April consequence of Perfect Organism Podcast To mark Alien Day, former 20th Century Studios licensing director Josh Izzo unveiled one Alien VS Predator Anime was created sometime before the takeover. According to him there is “10 episodes of a fully completed series Alien VS Predator anime series i produced‘ and set between the events of the first Alien VS Predator movie and Alien Resurrection. Interestingly, the anime been made for quite some time since he added that it was ahead of production and release for both Extraterrestrial League And The robber, every the respective last films of the franchises before the takeover.
As Izzo described it, he initially came up with the idea of releasing a film straight to DVD extraterrestrial And predator as separate units or as AvP one. Anyway, he referred to the film as “20. Century” movie.We are the masters of our own destiny, rather than waiting for it to hit theaters whenever a movie comes out.” After getting the green light from the head of consumer products, he finally settled on one AvP series. Without explicitly confirming it, Izzo hints that the director was Shinji Aramaki (who recently directed Adult Swim’s). Blade Runner: Black Lotus). They acted as Western advisors the “incredibly insanely talented” Eric Calderon (Afro samurai) and Dave Baker.
But will Disney ever release this anime? That is the big question and currently unknown. It doesn’t sound like there are any complications with the release—For example, think of this prey did not come to the cinemas because the film would then have gone to the cinemas HBO Max. Or maybe it’s just a matter of timing: prey The film was released to rave reviews and drew heavy viewership over its opening weekend. Disney may wait to see how that works extraterrestrial Film or show serves to check this prey was no coincidence and both franchises can add momentum to the anime.
Or, depressingly, it may simply be that the decision was never to release everything because it can. We won’t know until we know.
