Dan Trachtenberg's Emmy-nominated Predator prequel, Prey, arrived on Hulu last year, and didn't take long to become the #1 premiere on the streaming service to date, including all film and TV series debuts. The film was also a huge hit with critics, with a very impressive 94% on Rotten Tomatoes.

Disney/20th Century Studios' decision to debut the movie on streaming instead of in theaters was widely criticized, but it's fair to say that the move paid off, and we're now hearing that a sequel is in-development for Hulu.

There's been no official announcement, but World of Reel has drawn attention to a Production Weekly listing which claims that Prey 2 is indeed in the works.

The first film concluded with protagonist Naru (Amber Midthunder) defeating the near-unstoppable alien hunter (with the aid of her canine pal), and returning to her tribe. However, the end credits artwork seemed to suggest that other Predators soon showed up to avenge their fallen comrade.

There's been a lot of speculation that another Prey movie might move the action to a different timeline, but would ditching Midthunder as the lead really be a good idea after the Legion alum gave the franchise one of its best protagonists? 

We'll update if and when we learn more about this rumoured Prey sequel, but for now, you can check out a clip from one of the featurettes that will be included on the Blu-ray.

"Prey is the story of a young woman, Naru, a fierce and highly skilled warrior who has been raised in the shadow of some of the most legendary hunters who roam the Great Plains. So when danger threatens her camp, she sets out to protect her people. The prey she stalks, and ultimately confronts, turns out to be a highly evolved alien predator with a technically advanced arsenal, resulting in a vicious and terrifying showdown between the two adversaries."

John Davis produced Prey with Marty Ewing and Jhane Myers, who is a Native Comanche. Lawrence Gordon, Ben Rosenblatt, James E. Thomas, John C. Thomas, and Marc Toberoff served as executive producers.

The film stars Amber Midthunder (Legion, Roswell, New Mexico), Dakota Beavers (of the band WesternBoy), Stormee Kipp (Sooyii), Michelle Thrush (The Journey Home), Julian Black Antelope (Tribal), Cody Big Tobacco (The Revenant), Skye Pelletier (Burden of Truth), Tymon Carter (The Emigrants), and Harlan Blayne Kytwayhat (Shoresy), with Dane DiLiegro (American Horror Stories), a 6’9″ former basketball player who has experience working in creature suits, as the Predator.

The first film was good enough to deserve a sequel, narratively I am not sure if I would want to see the same setting or characters.

@Forthas - I'm in the same boat of thought. While a sequel if done right could be excellent given how much I enjoyed the first one.

I can't help but want all the predator films to be a one and done story. There's just something about the singular adventure in a specific time-line that really holds well for the franchise I think. It would be amazing if they did the Samurai version a lot of us fans have been dreaming about. That would surely put butts in the seats, and be a fresh enough take.

@Forthas - feel same way if it’s with same characters doesn’t deserve make sequel with characters in same time setting
HashTagSwagg - 9/29/2023, 2:58 PM
@Forthas - My problem with the first is that it was obvious the chick wasn't gonna die so no matter what danger she was in, you knew she was gonna make it out. Now that she supposedly will be carrying the gun that's eventually going to end up in the hands of the predators, there is some tension they could have there but realistically they ain't gonna go for that, more than likely the gun goes to some random elder, he dies, Pred gets guns and girl makes it out alive again.
RedFury - 9/29/2023, 3:58 PM
@HashTagSwagg - to be fair, in every predator movie the main character has survived. So I wouldn't say it's something that shouldn't be expected. But I get what you're saying; it would certainly suggest that she does succumb to a predator which is how it is able to hand the pistol off. And to kill her off would be a surprising move on Disney's part that is probably unlikely.

But here's hoping that if they do make a sequel, the mini-plot involving the pistol is handled in an interesting, and less than obvious way. Truly I just hope they don't do the frienimies thing like at the end of the first AVP... so much cringe.

@HashTagSwagg - I think you are right on the nose!

The best Predator since Predators, truly fantastic but if you make a sequel it'll ruin the ending. Make it an anthology of sorts, otherwise this will die out like a star

New teaser trailer! It looks like a big budget Troma movie! Praised be the gods!
TheVisionary25 - 9/29/2023, 10:14 AM
Sweet , I hope it’s true!!.

I liked Prey but I hope we move to a different time period now personally…

However , I feel we’ll still focus on Naru given the ending of the first one which is fine since I liked the character.

"but would ditching Midthunder as the lead really be a good idea after the Legion alum gave the franchise one of its best protagonists?"

Absolutely! I can't see a direct sequel to this film working as now you're essentially creating a standard alien war movie which imo doesn't suit the predator as an antagonist or as a species. Predator works best as a small group or individual being hunted by this ultimate creature who does it for honor and trophies. Bring in the war they somewhat set up in the post credits and it just looses it's appeal and becomes a generic alien invasion flick.

I still really wish they would've gone with the predator prequel comic story based around how the gun from predator 2 came into possession of the creatures!

Also would kill to see a predator film set in feudal japan or in the trenches of world war 1

@EZBeast - FYI, the gun was retconned in the prequel movie.
EZBeast - 9/29/2023, 10:32 AM
@Origame - fyi no duh…

The comic was a better story though and would’ve been very entertaining to see on the big screen.

I know that basically every Predator movie was supposed to get a direct sequel, but for various reasons the franchise has kinda become an anthology series with new setting, cast and even tone, to some degree, in every movie and I would personally like to keep that tradition alive. I would be fine with Trachtenberg staying, though.
Ha1frican - 9/29/2023, 10:44 AM
I’m down
KaptainKhaos - 9/29/2023, 10:53 AM
I would be down for another period setting. Ancient Egypt, Something featuring Polynesian Warriors or the Mongol Empire!
TheVisionary25 - 9/29/2023, 10:55 AM
@KaptainKhaos - give me a samurai or ninja vs Predator in Feudal Japan.

Who remembers the outrage when this film was announced?

'Woke feminism'

'How is she going to defeat a predator when Arnold barely survived'

'She gonna be a Mary sue'


Now we all excited for a sequel ( and yes I'm aware the writing was good but people shouldn't be so quick to judge).

@TheClunges -

That's the strategy for YouTube rage bait content.

Predict a film is woke and hammer it for months. When the film is successful they ignore it and act like they never were crying about it and they even try to claim it to fit their ideology.

Perfect example is the Mario movie. They bitched about it for months calling it woke but as soon as it was a hit they said it was anti woke🤡

These clowns have brain rot 🤣
AquaClunge - 9/29/2023, 11:03 AM
@AmazingFILMporg - hilarious to see 😅😅
TruePunishment - 9/29/2023, 10:59 AM
A lot of people didn't pay attention to the end credits, apparently.
SonOfAGif - 9/29/2023, 11:24 AM
I would love to see a Sci-fi Spaghetti Western type of sequel. Basically what Cowboys vs Aliens should have been. And each protagonist from each entry can crossover in a big ensemble movie as they were all captured at some point in time and cryogenically frozen and preserved for a Championship Battle Royale with the Yautja.
