The quality of the video isn't excellent, but the video is pure gold! 

The next film, if it happens, must honor Giger, must!

I think if Disney do choose to follow through with a Alien movie be it a Alien Covenant Sequel, a Aliens Sequel, a Alien Resurrection Sequel or another Alien movie within any of the Time-Lines i do think Disney would certainly be in contact with the HR Giger Estate to bring more of that Atheistic back into the Franchise.

Gods I hope so. That video was awesome. Giger is the Alien franchise end of story.

I would not mind some Giger influences in the next movie. At the same time we got to remember that the success of Alien was because of many different parts, the Giger aesthetics was just one part of what made Alien great.

Giger's part was probably the most significant and most important part. Without art/set design, a director only has people to film, and Giger made Alien a work of art, more so than Ridley Scott.

I can see Thoughts' point but I think the Giger touch really set it apart from everything else at the time. Over the decades, many others have "borrowed" from that style.

Well i think O'Bannon and Giger need the most Credit,  RS just put there ideas and design to good effect.

O'Bannon brought us a unique Alien Life Cycle.... HR Giger gave us a design to bring O'Bannons Alien to the Screen with something like we never saw before..

Getting the Monster Design was Key... HR Gigers Design was so iconic, i think it was done differently it could have had a great effect in making Alien just a typical B-Movie.

We need only look at the Original Predator Design..

Which is not to bad.... it could fit in the Alien Universe as a alternative kind of Engineer Created Monster.

But when we look at the Design they went with for the Final Predator Design and how Iconic this was, we have to ask WHAT IF they gave us that Original Predator Suit as worn by Van Damme? 

And then appreciate without Gigers Art, our ALIEN Monster in ALIEN could have looked like this.
