Prior to the merging of 20th Century Fox and Disney, an Alien vs. Predator anime series was created for the Netflix streaming service! Unfortunately, since the merger, the series never saw its release - but that's not to say it never will.
According to the Perfect Organism Podcast:
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.
Unfortunately no other sources can confirm the validity of these claims, but prior to the Disney deal we understand Fox were actively looking to expand the Alien property beyond blockbuster films - with many rumors suggesting a Netflix series being one such avenue the Studio were taking aim at.
With Alien Day 2021 approaching next month, perhaps Disney will relinquish this Alien vs. Predator anime series on Netflix or Disney+ as an act of good faith towards the Alien and Predator fandom. As far as we know however, Disney are not actively developing any substantial content for either property at this moment.
We remain hopeful that Disney will not leave the Alien and Predator series indefinitely shelved. As new details arise, if they do, we'll be sure to keep you posted!
