ridley mentioned the name and the order of the films and where awakening will fit in the sequence of movies. its a prequel to AC yet that will probably change, everything else has in this saga
Well its one of those things with RS, where his interview comments are sometimes a bit hard to figure out... he did bring up the name Alien Awakening for the next one.. Which he then said would fit between Prometheus and Alien Covenant.
However his latest comments on a sequel and where he intends to take the franchise seems to me that this was a slip up by RS and that Alien Awakening (working Title) would actually be a Direct Alien Covenant Sequel.
It also appears that anyone expecting more information about the Engineers, what happened between Prometheus and Alien Covenant and what happened to Dr Shaw will be ULTIMATELY disappointment as these seem to be things that FOX are brushing under the carpet.
Right now it seems the next movie which they are working on a draft for, will be set following the events of Alien Covenant and the Covenant Ship that David now has full control and this Movie will Edge us in more to the 1979 ALIEN movie.
The Prequel Book is a Prequel to the Covenant crew mission and will cover some kind of Conspiracy, hidden Agenda and Espionage as far as what happens behind the scenes of the Weyland-Yutani Company... as it would imply that the Merger did not settle to well with every party.. And it looks like this could set up hints that AI is running the Show.
I think AA will also hint to this more... and i think its about the AI just as much as the Aliens now.

"and this Movie will Edge us in more to the 1979 ALIEN movie."
Does that mean that it is the last prequel before Alien (1979)? I hope that it will be about the Xenos and various monsters versus human characters. The AI could be interesting, I just don't want them to play as huge part as Ridley Scott probably wants them to do.
I think 1 more after AA. I want a more Prometheus styled movie to go into the engineers in more detail.
Thats a bit upsetting, I had the feeling that was it with the engineers, black goo, etc think they realise they opened too many cans of worms to answer everything. You never know they might do something like a Rogue One spin off in the future! the history of the engineers. Never known a movie like AC before, so vague it hurts! keep hearing its for you to make your own mind up, especially with what happened to Shaw. Hopefully AA will still be good, fingers crossed.
nudger, imo, F*** THAT. I hope we get to see more of the engineers and xenos in the same timeline, witnessing their connection and get the answers to why they deemed humanity a species that needed wiped out. I don't think that kind of plot in the universe is something that should be relegated to a spin off
I wouldn't get my hopes up about "Prometheus" style anything going forward. I've seen it 4 times now, and you don't have to know anything about Prometheus to understand Covenant. Whatever we were meant to discover about the engineers by following Shaw, we can learn from David through exposition since he knows everything already. That's why I consider Covenant a full reboot (and believe me, I am NOT thrilled about 6 more installments of evil cackling robots explaining-it-all to a bland bunch of hapless space truckers, but it's up to Riddelz to prove me wrong lol ;)
Well when RS mentions the Plans to Alien he implies there would be 1-2 movies, so i think they would make enough of a connection to Alien in the next one, that would leave a little open to interpretation.
They leave the Door open for another movie, that could go to tie in those connections more clear... or consider that enough information is there to get the answers and cover some other aspects of the Franchise (Engineers?) who knows.
RS comments to to suggest as far as Movies, there wont be no Parallel stories or prequels to AC and that its going to follow ONE Thread and thats about HIM (1979 Xenomorph) and how we eventually arrive at this Alien, that Cargo on the Derelict.
RS then also goes on about AI quite a bit, and so i think the route now is that AI forms a massive part of the Background Agenda/Plot of the Company and the Xenomorph.
It seems another upto 6 Movies would likely be around the Xenomorph and AI and RS said you could Evolve the Xenomorph for sure, but it has to be about the Xenomorph
This leads me to think RS is heading to Alien, and then could be planning to Reboot Aliens on wards. His comments sugest that only his Alien movies are important and the others are just Dumb Shoot-em-ups.
He then proposes that they could even De-age Miss Weaver to bring back Ripley... so yes this is where i feel RS is going.
Prometheus, Alien Covenant, Alien Awakening (maybe another movie) ALIEN, New Alien 2, New Alien 3 and after this maybe he will bring the Engineers back into it for the Last Movie.
This ^^^^ is what i think Ridley Scotts Plans are.

Totally agree ali81 I really hope they don't, was being a tadge sarcastic. I think what ElectricAve says, we will probably learn what happened via David with each new movie. You never know the Engineers may still appear in the new Alien sequels.
I am tired of ambiguous b.s. Can we get a real story that explains itself as it unfolds? SMH!
Hey in Aliens the line "is this another bug hunt" and the AI uprising eluded to in Alien Res would be cool to see. It would fit and be interesting to see. But I think RS has to be more specific about trying things together, specifically with the Engineers and the black goo. Hell I'd take a youtube short video or promo like they did with AC.
I think RS is going to get it right once all the movies are made, it'll be a more complete picture and make sense.
But if you havent, you must read the Dark Horse comics for anything Aliens, Predator, and Engineers. The stories are well done and should please even the most snippy fan.
