Amanda Ripley’s story to be told in a new r-rated animated Alien series based on best selling game Alien: Isolation
Man, it seems that Alien has been in the news a lot lately. News of Neill Blomkamp and Ridley Scott collaborating on a new film has got people excited…and so it should. Neill Blomkamp and Ridley Scott hooking up for an Alien movie can only mean great things, can’t it?.
News also dropped that we’re going to be getting, not one, but two live-action series’ based in the Alien universe. One of which will be produced by Scott-Free Productions and will be exclusively for streaming service Hulu. News on the second live-action series is still unknown but as soon as I know, I will make sure to keep you all updated.
Now, it looks like have another new series based on the best selling game Alien: Isolation on its way…and if the info I am reading is correct, we could be getting the first episode as early as April. As of now, there doesn’t seem to be any platform and the series will be released on the official website for the Alien: Isolation game. It is reported we will get one episode per month. The first series will consist of seven episodes.
Let’s just pray that all of this news is good news.
We have so many unanswered questions and endless possibilities to explore in the Alien universe. It won’t be long before Disney get their covetous, greedy hands on the franchise and Fox and Disney become an uncontrollable, unquenchable bottomless money pit.
We have been reassured time and time again that we have nothing to worry about – we will still get r-rated content, even with the two companies merging together. Let’s hope we don’t have to release the face-huggers @ Disney HQ.
More news to follow as it’s announced. As always, thanks for reading.
