Fan Aliens vs. carnivores and the respective brands involved were shocked to learn that Alien Vs. Anime Predator has been made – it happens to be in a Disney vault, unreleased to the world.
In a fan podcast for Aliens Day, a celebration of the classic sci-fi horror series, a former licensing executive at 20th Century studios named Joshua Izzo confirmed that Fox created Alien Vs. Predator anime series, with 10 episodes completed and ready to premiere, as reported by IGN. Why the anime has yet to be released remains unclear, but Izzo has revealed some intriguing details that are sure to make fans of both franchises want to see.
Aliens vs. The Predator has a 10-episode anime series
According to Izzo, the story of Alien Vs. The Predator anime is produced and features a story created by Eric Calderon, known for his work on Afro Samurai: Resurrection, and Dave Baker. The original pitch was actually for a Western animated series designed for Direct-to-DVD release, which could be used as a means of shipping new merchandise and products related to the franchise. commercial. According to Izzo, this originally came about when 2017’s Alien Covenant was still in its early stages, suggesting that the project has been around for quite some time. The offer was approved and they started looking for a director. Although Izzo did not name the director, previous fan rumors have suggested that it is Shinji Aramaki, who worked on Halo Legends and Harlock: Space Pirate, as well as 2021’s Blade Runner: Black Lotus, a other anime based on Fox movies. All of those series use a CGI animation style instead of the usual anime look, suggesting that Alien Vs. The Predator line will likely have a similar style.
Izzo did not reveal story details, other than that the series is said to be set after Alien Vs. Predators and Aliens 4. There are also no clues as to why Disney decided not to release the series for so long; apparently it was in development before the Disney/Fox merger took effect, and if the work is really as mature as Izzo says, there’s really no reason not to release it. After all, the money has already been spent, and there are plenty of fans out there eager to watch. Blade Runner: Black Lotus was also well received, so there’s no reason to think Shinji Aramaki’s other Western adaptation won’t be.
While the fate of this Aliens vs. carnivores anime could be on air, the series could always premiere at some point in the future, be it on a streaming service like Hulu or Disney+; perhaps a wave of fan interest might even spur them to release it eventually.
