In Space... No Once Can Hear the hundreds of thousands of Alien fans screaming for some word on the fate of their beloved Alien franchise!


Disney have announced via their official website that a new Alien film is currently in production and is slated for an April 1st, 2022 release date. The title for the new film is currently unknown but sources speculate the film will deviate from the established Prometheus lore created by Ridley Scott and venture into deeper space - uncovering new mysteries surrounding the universe's Xenomorph infestation. The brief synopsis does mention the iconic Weyland-Yutani corporation however, so we can expect the company to be at the forefront of whatever is to come next:

5 Years after visionary filmmaker Ridley Scott introduced audiences Alien: Covenant, a new chapter in the iconic Alien saga will be uncovered. Releasing April 1st, 2022, Disney and 20th Century Studios invite you to embark on a perilous journey with Weyland-Yutani to the far reaches of space to further explore the Xenomorph terrors which await. 

The last news we heard about a new Alien film was back in June of 2019 where director Ridley Scott had mentioned they were currently, actively writing a script for the Covenant sequel.

If you've read this far and your heart is beginning to race like a Chestburster is eager to exit your rib cage, then I must apologize. If you haven't clued in yet, today is April Fool's Day and unfortunately this is merely a joke and none of the above mentioned information is true.

I realize this may anger some of you, myself included are of the majority disappointed by the lack of Alien news being shared since Disney took control of Fox film assets. Every year we take part in April Fool's Day with a joke. If anything - despite angering some of our fellow fans by pulling on a few heart strings - I hope this piece brings fresh light to the Alien franchise and ignites discussion once again on the prospect of continuing the franchise on in some form or another! 

I hope this transmission reaches Disney and they get to work on that new Alien film / TV series so many of us are eagerly waiting for...

About Alien: Covenant 2 / Alien Awakening

The state of the Alien: Covenant sequel continues to remain uncertain. Ridley Scott has mentioned previously that they have a story already in place and know exactly where the sequel to Covenant will go, however the recent acquisition of 20th Century Fox film properties by Disney have potentially put the rumored-to-be-titled Alien: Awakening on hold for the time being. As new details arise concerning Alien: Covenant 2 we will be your premiere source and you can find information on the Covenant sequel by visiting the About Alien: Awakening page here.

Scumbag ;)

But to be Perfectly Honest, i am awaiting some NEWS down the Line regarding a ALIEN MOVIE i think maybe we could get some News over the Next 2-3 Years and i would Suspect that such a Announcement would be a Separate ALIEN Movie that neither Connects to the Prequels or the Ripley Saga.

I also would not be Surprised if we get a 2026 Sequel to ALIENS like Blomkamps Alien 5, and so offering a Alternative Sequel to ALIENS where the GANG is brought back.... or IF-NOT then a Sequel after Alien 3 but prior to Alien Resurrection.

Sadly i CANT see Disney taking any Risk on Continuing with the Prequels and in 5, 10 Years they may just HOPE that Fans Forget about them.
