A new piece of Star Wars and Predator crossover fan art imagines the Dark Lord of the Sith, Darth Vader, being attacked in a forest by a Predator.
A new piece of crossover fan art shows Star Warsultimate villain, Darth Vader, confronting the Predator. First created for the 1987 sci-fi action film of the same name starring Arnold Schwarzenegger and Carl Weathers, the Predators are an alien species known for their hunting prowess and insatiable desire to track down only the deadliest game. Meanwhile, Darth Vader is the central villain of the original. Star Wars trilogy, and the focal point of the prequels charting his transformation from Jedi Knight Anakin Skywalker into the Sith Lord he would become. Voiced by James Earl Jones, he is without a doubt one of the most recognizable movie villains of all time.
While the Predator the franchise was not enjoyed anywhere near the level of success Star Wars has, has still managed to spawn three sequel movies and two crossovers with the Alien franchise with alien vs predator Y Alien vs Predator: Requiem. A new prequel set 300 years before the first film, dubbed Dam, is also expected to hit Hulu’s streaming service sometime later this year. This also doesn’t take into account the plethora of other spin-off media, such as novels, comics, and games, all inspired by the alien hunter’s fan-favorite species.
A new piece of fan art from tilian_creative shows fans what could happen in the event that Darth Vader ever crosses paths with a Predator. Mimicking 1980s-style horror art, the Predator leaps from the surrounding dense forest to attack an unarmed Vader. However, not to be caught off guard, Vader’s stance suggests that he is preparing to turn to the dark side of the Force for protection. Check out the artist’s original post below:

While any Predator would no doubt relish the opportunity to hunt down someone as deadly as Darth Vader, most Star Wars fans would probably agree that the Dark Lord of the Sith would likely dispatch any attacker in short order. Even without his lightsaber, Vader’s strength in the Force would make him a formidable target for even the most experienced hunter. Of course, it seems highly unlikely that such a showdown would happen on screen, even though both franchises are currently owned by Disney.
While Lucasfilm has a plethora of new Star Wars planned content for the next few years, including several new live-action series, such as the one to be released soon Obi Wan KenobiDisney apparently has much less faith in the future of the Predator Serie. The last film in the franchise, 2018 The predator (which was released before Disney’s merger with Fox), ultimately fell short of expectations, and the new prequel film is set to avoid a theatrical release altogether. As such, fans of both Star Wars Y Predator you’ll probably have to keep your speculations crossed with pieces of fan art like this.
