We Now Know More About The Alien Vs Predator Anime We'll (Probably) Never See

Aramaki also released notable plot details of “Annihilation,” saying that it took place on board an enormous immigration ship. Whether it was an immigration ship populated by humans or “Predator” aliens, he didn’t specify, but it seems that he was taking the template laid out by Ridley Scott’s 1979 film, namely that a murderous creature was loose in a confined spaceship area and that unwitting victims are ill-equipped to deal with it. The year in which it takes place, a cast of characters, or the actual plot, sadly, were not revealed. As of this writing, fans can only speculate. 

Aramaki once tweeted that he had completed work on the project seven years ago. He doesn’t know why Fox, nor Disney, didn’t release his series in 2016 when they could. 

During the panel, Aramaki was asked if his “Alien vs. Predator: Annihilation” had anything to do with a notoriously scrapped “AVP” novel, to be written by author John Shirley, bearing the same title. Aramaki, sadly, couldn’t confirm any connection. Details about that novel are just as scant. 

Aramaki began his directing career with the 1987 anime special “Metal Skin Panic MADOX-01.” He directed the celebrated 2004 “Appleseed” anime, which was the first of its medium to incorporate motion-capture technology. Aramaki’s more recent projects include work on the most recent “Ultraman” anime series, the spinoff show “Ghost in the Shell: SAC 2045,” and the 2021 series “Blade Runner: Black Lotus,” also, incidentally, based on a film by Ridley Scott. He has a talent for designing complex mechanical structures, and served as a designer on the 1984 “Transformers” TV series and the vehicle/toy-forward series “M.A.S.K.” in 1985.

As for “Alien vs. Predator: Annihilation,” further bulletins will be posted as events warrant.
