20th Century Fox & Netflix Reportedly Made An Alien vs. Predator Anime! And They Had Interest In More Animated Material!

According to the good folk over at The Perfect Organism Podcast, 20th Century Fox and Netflix produced and completed an Alien vs. Predator anime! Unfortunately they haven’t shared any specific details – is it an original story, or an adaptation of the fan-favourite original comic series – but it’s interesting none-the-less!

“Before 20th Century Fox completed their merger with the Walt Disney Company, Perfect Organism: The Alien Saga Podcast was in regular contact with several key players at Fox. During that time it was revealed to us that an Alien vs. Predator anime was completed for Netflix and then never released. It is unknown if and/or when it will be released.”

 20th Century Fox & Netflix Reportedly Made An Alien vs. Predator Anime! And They Had Interest In More Animated Material!

Netflix is reportedly sitting on a completed Aliens vs. Predator anime!

Though we can’t corroborate this specific piece, Alien vs. Predator Galaxy can also confirm that prior to the Disney purchase of 20th Century Fox they had been quite open to, and had at least entertained the possibility of, exploring the Alien universe in other animated Alien adventures!

Originally introduced in 2019’s Alien: Echo, Olivia Shipp was set to receive a lot of focus leading up to the release of Cold Iron’s Aliens shooter. Had Aliens: Colonial Marines – Rising Threat not been cancelled, we’d have been just over half-way through Olivia Shipp’s debut comic series.

And as Alien vs. Predator Galaxy understands it, Olivia was also set to have her own series of animated shorts which would have seen an aged General Shipp looking back over her life and career in the Colonial Marines, where she would encounter the Aliens once again. We would have found out that Zula and Amanda were responsible for her rescue, and Zula inspired Olivia to join the marines.

    Disweyland said they are targeting 2021 for international rollout of Hulu. Considering it's seemingly more popular internationallly than domestically right now, I won't be surprised if an Alien series is timed with that debut.

    I feel like Disney+ probably could support AVP, it is the only PG-13 which does allow it to get on the site/app.

    That might be a decent way to go about it with the shows being made to be R but the PG-13 cut ends up on Disney+ enabling both viewer bases to see the product. With current leadership coming from consumer products it would make sense to get old as much as new people involved with the products.

    I imagine that Disney is probably looking at setting up something different for their not kid friendly audience.  They have gained alot of franchises some which just fly against their company branding. Who knows maybe this will end up on Hulu (Disney owned) instead?

    Personally I'd be happy for seperate service maybe part of a bundle that lumps the other franchise together.
    Alien, AvP, Die Hard, The Fly, Hills have eyes, Independence day, Lake placid, The Omen, Wrong Turn, 28 days, The Exorcist, Planet of the Apes are a few that they now need to figure how they are going to fit in with their image so with what I'm sure is another massive selection of shelved franchises maybe we will see The AvP anime on a new service in the future?

    Ive always thought animation is the best place for AVP because the suspension of disbelief of the concept lends itself to animation better and it's the place fans are most likely to accept the crossover.

    Now let's get Disney on that ALIEN live action series we all know is eventually gonna get the green light.

    All those reasons are exactly why they did it, along with all the content they got, not just Star Wars. They now have Avatar as well, for example.

    Star Wars would get its own slide in Disney+ because it's a whole bunch of movies and TV shows, not because it's the main reason they bought Fox.

    They're referring to a brand like NA said - not a studio.

    Nightmare Asylum's comment was the inverse to what you are saying.

    He said "why would Disney pay $71 Billion on acquiring Fox" (for Star Wars alone) when even the total box office doesn't justify costs for acquiring the studio/s (LucasFilm 20th Century Fox?

    My thoughts.

    - buying out and closing the competition
    - closing a rival studio
    - acquiring studios for Disney's gain?

    Star Wars is more immediately recognisable then Lucasfilm Ltd.  Disney removed the Fox logo from Star Wars films before they bought the company.
  8. AVP-CAPCOM
    Anyway you have to remember that Disney only bought 20th Century Fox to get distribution rights on Star Wars

    Huh? That is not at all the case. No studio is going to purchase an entire other studio for the distribution rights relating to a handful of pre-existing films in one brand, even if that brand happens to be Star Wars. Disney spent 71 billion dollars on Fox...

    I hope you're right but look at this billboard advert I saw today for Disney Plus.

    Note how it refers to "star wars" rather than "20th century films"? When all the other acquired properties are referred to by their studio rather than films?

    Didn't Covenant already give us LGBT characters?  Did anyone smoke in it that wasn't either on fire or burned by acid?

    Yeah Lope and Hallett were a gay couple.  And Ridley has mentioned that sex between crew members isn't necessarily hetero.  Outside the movies there's Jill and Chris in Fire & Stone and Olivia in Echo off the top of my head. Blue in Cold Forge swung a couple of ways from memory.  And Ray in Prototype was a trans man.

    There was also a gay couple in Prey. I can't recall her name off hand.

    Disney's been anti-smoking in films for a long time, this isn't really new or surprising.

    It doesn't sound like he's saying everything's going to be PG-13, just that PG-13 and under material won't have smoking. Disney has always appreciated there's an adult market and have always owned subsidiaries to cater to it.
  11. AVP-CAPCOM
    Just to expand and speculate about Bob Chapek "smoking" and "lgb+" policy seemingly being an early indication of Disney's creative direction.

    Smoking. This comment comes from "the sound of the south" being refused entry into Disney+ in part due to "racial overtones" and Bob Chapek stating he will pay attention to censorship of adult themes while seemingly aiming for PG-13 or lower. To me he sounds like a PG-13 or nothing and what counts as PG-13 before won't fly now, and that's even before consideration from the M.P.A.A. rating system.

    Anyway you have to remember that Disney only bought 20th Century Fox to get distribution rights on Star Wars, while at the same time buying Lucas Film from George Lucas. And that, as well all know, is PG-13 or lower.
    Not to mention the media tries to paint "anti-woke culture" critics as a fringe minority in their non-acceptance of lgb+ in light of Star Wars box office returns. I'd argue its moreso the intellectual property- rather than social politics- responsbile for Star Wars success.

    Yeah I don't see any of those things to be especially controversial.

    Won't stop Youtube shouters making a bunch of videos complaining about "woke" Disney though.

    Unrelated but could have an impact. Bob Iger has stepped down from Disney, after a shareholders meeting decided to replace him with Disney CEO Bob Chapek in the past day. Chapek's background is Disney theme-park rides and merchandise products.

    Apparently he said "scenes of smoking will be banned in any film (including subsidiary 20th Century Films) rated PG-13 or below" and he wants to move forward with lgb+ characters as his first two visions as new Disney leader.

    Make of that what you will.

    Unless there's another AVP situation I don't think we have to worry about smoking impacting anything. And when it comes to either Alien or Predator, neither creature really has any stake in what direction the Human characters swing.

    I can actually see an anti-smoking message in a Predator film but the thing sees heat anyways so lighting up is a bad idea in the first place. I feel like on of the films even did that.

  16. Fiendishly Inventive
    Yes nearly exactly so, perhaps set long after the Resurrection/USM era for all I care, if it's got recognisable aspects from the Aliens/Alien³ era, it's quickly going to acquire a large number of people anticipating it.
    My apologies- for being totally unclear last night.
