To hell with that I want a "Kenner Scorpion Alien: An Alien Tale" spin-off movie!

*Spoilers*: he blows up at the end. It's truly an emotional roller coaster.

After Logan, Deadpool and It they realize there's still money to be made with R-Rated movies.
I don't see it as a bad thing. We'd probably get more big budget horror. And among the crap there's bound to be a couple of gems.

I've been irrationally worried about this all day...  I just want one more Ridley Scott film to close the gap!  Then they can sell to Disney and have JJ Abrams do a PG-13 remake of Aliens for all I care.

If Disney buys Fox, there could be three outcomes. One, Alien and Predator would be made PG movie, like MCU movies. Two, the two franchise would be deleted or erased because of it's non kid-friendly traits. Three, Disney would try the R route, which may or may not hurt their reputation as a family friendly franchise (well, maybe, as there are many guts and bloods. Cursing may contribute a little, as Falcon said "shit" in CA:TWS and little to nobody complains).

Disney's much bigger than just the family friendly "corporation" as SM points out elsewhere in the thread - so I don't thinking hurting their image will factor into any decisions about AvP franchise.

The deal has stalled but isn't off: https://screenrant.com/disney-fox-deal-mcu-x-men-explained/

Going the "R" route should not be new for Disney given Miramax.

Has there ever been a case of Disney inheriting or actually doing an "adult" franchise? Either way, I wouldn't panic just yet. This might amount to nothing.

They release 'adult' stuff through subsidiaries like Miramax and Touchstone.

They also once owned Dimension films that put out horror films.

Wait until it merges with Warner Bros and becomes Disney-Warner and opens up a bio-weapons division for research on Alie-, oh wait... we still have a century to go.  :P

This probably has more to do with the need for content for their upcoming streaming network. National geographic would go to them. Thats a big gain for the network.   Sure they will get Avp, die hard, xmen, fantastic 4, and id4 but Avatar, is the real icening on the cake. 

Miramax was sold a while back.

What’s interesting is fox has 30% of hulu
If this happens I see hulu going next & then netflix is in real trouble.

They sold Mirimax, but I'm pretty sure they still have Touchstone.  The could possibly continue these R-rated series as Touchstone projects.
