While it might be Disney+ Day, there’s still a whole world of streaming content out there, and Disney-owned Hulu is getting a new prequel to the Predator franchise called Prey in 2022.

The new Predator film is set in the world of the Comanche Nation in 1719, which is enough to grab our attention. We had trouble dealing with Predators and their futuristic weaponry when we had guns and rocket launchers (and Arnold Schwarzenegger). How will people deal with them with the array of weapons available more than 300 years ago?

The image above does a fantastic job of setting the tone for the film. We see Naru, a Comanche warrior, being stalked by Predator in the mist. It’s creepy, eerie, and puts the disadvantage Naru and her people will be forced to deal with as Predator (or multiple Predators) invade their world into focus.

As far as the cast and crew, 10 Cloverfield Lane’s Dan Trachtenberg will direct Prey. He also directed pilots for The Boys and The Lost Symbol. It’s also set to star Amberg Midthunder.

Prey is skipping theaters and coming exclusively to Hulu. Skipping theaters used to be a kiss of death for a film, but that’s far from the case anymore. Of course, after the awful movie that was 2018’s The Predator, we’ll need to keep our expectations in check for this one.
