It looks like Disney has an Alien vs. Predator is a completed 10-episode run, but she won’t be releasing it.
During an episode of the Alien Day podcast Perfect organization Last month, Joshua Izzo, former director of licensing at 20th Century Fox before the company was acquired by Disney and founder of Alien Day in 2016, shared details about the anime and why it hasn’t been released yet.
“Disney right now, at 20th Studios, has a full 10 episodes of the Alien vs. Predator anime series that I’ve produced. It’s ready… It’s done and done. It’s produced and written by Eric Calderon and Dave Baker, two talented guys,” Izo said. Unbelievably”.
Before it became an anime, Eizo said he suggested the idea of Alien vs. Predator credits to then-President of Home Entertainment Dave Bixler, who encouraged the project. He then pitched the idea to Jeffrey Kodesick, who was President of Consumer Products.
Once Godsick agreed to the proposal, Ezo submitted it to Home Entertainment and pitched his story and full idea to them. It was suggested that production of Alien vs. A Predator cartoon would be an easy matter for 20th Century Fox given that it owns the rights to nearly 30 years of Alien and Predator comics content, and that Alien vs. Predator won’t have rights issues.
Izzo added that after some discussion, they brought in a director who had worked on Halo Legends and Harlock: Space Pirate, and he suggested a completely different story for the series. According to alien vs. Predator GalaxyThe director is Shinji Aramaki, who besides his work on Halo Legends and Harlock, has also directed Starship Troopers, Appleseed, Appleseed Ex Machina, and Blade Runner: Black Lotus.
Izo and Aramaki, along with Baker and Calderón as animation consultants, worked on 10 episodes for the series, which is set sometime after the events of Alien vs. Predator and Alien 4.
Aramaki is known for blending 2D animation with computer-generated imagery (CGI), which means Alien vs. Predator would most likely have taken this approach rather than a more traditional 2D animation. But we have no idea when Disney will release the anime, if it decides to do so in the first place.
