Hey everyone, haven't posted in a while, but I just need to talk about this...

http://variety.com/2017/biz/news/21st-century-fox-disney-sale-talks-stock-1202607912/

 In one of the threads talking about reboots/future movie ideas, someone hypothesized and posted something along the lines of this:

"Franchise sold to Disney"

"J.J Abrams directing"

 

If this is true, what do you think will happen the Alien series? I think it might be a mistake, Alien gave Fox it's own identity

Doubt that will happen, but Disney might either bring it back or royally screw it up. I want Alien 5 though as a Force Awakens style movie.

I hope not.

I can just imagine Ripley being a Disney princess.

It would be sad because Alien makes Fox, Fox.

Well just using other examples it's likely any nonmovie material for Alien becomes noncanon, if it already isn't and will get started over. They also tend to go with the large crowd and focus on what is liked rather than controversial, so if they did pursue an Alien movie it would likely be the general idea we got of 5, because the general consensus is that after the first two movies the movie quality dropped and 5 seemed like it heavily connected to the good movies.

 

O they just don't touch the alien series because it doesn't seem to be the safest franchise at the moment.
