There’s a rumor going around that Disney is not gonna pursue any Fox projects that are not family oriented, which has scared people to think that this is the end of the Alien and Predator franchises. I was a little worried about that myself. But I think we might be overreacting. I don’t think that Disney is just gonna take the Alien and Predator franchises and put them in a box and forget about them. I mean, they’re both profitable franchises, and if they’ll make money, they’ll probably do them. I mean, sure the last Alien movies didn’t really do well, but neither did the last two Terminator movies and they’re still making make more. Maybe under different studios and different continuities, but they’re still making them. I think what they’re probably gonna do is simply make more movies, but keep the Fox logo to release them under, like how they release the Avengers movies under Marvel Studios or the Star Wars movies under LucasFilm, notice you don’t see the Disney logo at the beginning of either of those franchises. Or, they’ll probably just sell the rights to someone else. Not to mention, don’t they have parent companies so they can profit from non family oriented movies like TouchStone?
Point being, I don’t think this is the end of the Alien and Predator franchises, I’m sure something will get them back on the big screen. Like the Jurassic Park line “life finds a way.”
