After » Predator — Upgrade » fell far short of expectations at the box office, the signs were not particularly good that the sci-fi franchise, which started in 1987 with the iconic Arnold Schwarzenegger hit » Predator » and then already continued with » Predator 2 » and » Predators » will be further expanded in the near future.

In November 2020, however, it was surprisingly revealed that, after taking over the 20th Century Fox studio, Disney not only wanted to revive the «Alien» series (set in the same fictional universe), but also to work on a new «Predator» film that is intended to be a prequel. In the meantime, the project has also come true — and with » Prey » the new appearance of the murderous cult alien will now appear directly on Disney + on August 5, 2022 (and thus already parallel to the US start on the Hulu streaming service).
Two warriors meet
The first teaser trailer that has now been released does not yet reveal much of the content of «Prey», but it does herald the big clash between two completely different warriors. In the center of the prequel, which is set 300 years in the past, there are no muscle-bound mercenaries, rat-snout police officers or a squad of super-soldiers. The main character in this case is the young Naru ( Amber Midthunder ), who belongs to the Comanche tribe.
Desperate to prove her worth as a warrior, she will do everything to ensure that she is accepted as a full member of the tribe. As the teaser now shows, Naru seems to have picked up the scent of a very special prey — namely the Predator himself. And of course he’s not stingy about accepting the fight, as the three red laser points on Naru’s face make clear. This probably also means: The alien trimmed for hunting accepts Naru as an equal opponent!
«Prey» was directed by «The Boys» and «10 Cloverfield Lane» director Dan Trachtenberg .
