Disney Predator Casts Amber Midthunder As Lead

Sure to be a smash hit, Disney has cast Amber Midthunder as the female lead of their new Predator movie. 

Back in February of 2021 saw the first details for the Disney Predator movie which made mention that the film will feature a female lead "who goes against gender norms and traditions to become a warrior" (check out the descriptions below).

According to leaked character descriptions, the original plan for the flick was to have the female lead be a 15-year-old girl, but things changed to make the character 19-years-old; Amber Midthunder is 24-years-old and is known for the Legion TV series and Roswell.

Dan Trachtenberg is the director, known for 10 Cloverfield Lane, Black Mirror, The Boys, and the upcoming The Lost Symbol TV series, and recently teased the new Predator flick on his Instagram

"If it bleeds..." he posted.

Further details include that the script is written by Patrick Aison (Wayward Pines, Kingdom, Tom Clancy's Jack Ryan), and that John Davis (Jungle Cruise) and Jhane Myers are producers, with production expected to start in around two weeks in Calgary, Canada.

The character description that Amber Midthunder will play offers the following:

KEE Female; 19 years old; Comanche. Her name, “Kee”, means “no” in Comanche. A name she has earned by perpetually refusing to do as she is told her entire life. Kee is very close to her younger brother, Taabe, who is being groomed as a leader. As capable as any young man in the tribe, Kee has always been a teacher and source of inspiration for Taabe. In the Comanche way – she is “Patsi” – the elder sister that has helped to shape him. Kee is a truth teller and has insight that others do not. A tomboy, she wants to prove herself in the masculine world of the Comanche. When danger threatens them all – Kee sets out to prove that she is as capable as any young warrior.

Here is a synopsis for Disney Predator as well:

The story will follow Kee, a Comanche woman who goes against gender norms and traditions to become a warrior. Many years ago – in a time before any Europeans had ever encroached on their lands – the Comanche people had a well defined society and gender norms. Kee is very close to her younger brother, Taabe, who is being groomed as a leader. As capable as any young man in the tribe, Kee has always been a teacher and source of inspiration for Taabe. In the Comanche way – she is Patsi – the elder sister that has helped to shape him. Kee is a truth teller and has insight that others do not. A tomboy, she wants to prove herself in the masculine world of the Comanche. When danger threatens them all – Kee sets out to prove that she is as capable as any young warrior.
