I would take this latest information with a grain of salt. Nothing worth the money the Alien and Predator franchises are will be dissolved the way this information suggests. If DISNEY is that set on doing away with it - and I still think they will sooner consider finding a more PG-13/Stranger Things-like approach to it - they will simply sell the rights to someone else.

Why on earth would they just do away with an entire profitable franchise or something that makes that kind of money? They will simply sell the rights to it.

Also Im not sure the reporting is clear. DISNEY PARKS have considered ALIEN family-friendly enough to include in their parks for decades. Lets not get carried away. They arent gonna throw out the baby with the bathwater.

Consider this: ALIENS w/o the cursing, is likely a PG-13 film by today's standards.

Man, gotta say I kind of hope they sell it rather than commercialize it to that extent.

Possibly some good news with regards to the Fox/Disney deal.

Could Emma Watts become Fox’s version of Kathleen Kennedy? Emma Watts previously worked with Ridley Scott in order to realize Alien Covenant.

Quote
While it doesn’t look like 20th Century Fox’s chairman/CEO Stacey Snider will be sticking around (as Alan Horn would likely take her role) post-merger there is now word from THR that Vice Chair Emma Watts will have a new role at Disney.

Watts, a seasoned production executive with strong talent relationships, is in a different position. Her exact role at Disney is still being hammered out, although her duties are almost certain to involve guiding films now in the 20th Century Fox pipeline, including the marquee Avatar and Kingsman franchises (in recent days, Kingsman 3 was dated for release on Nov. 8, 2019).

Watts has strong ties to such filmmakers and talent as James Cameron, Ryan Reynolds, Matthew Vaughn, Ridley Scott and Matt Reeves.

There are also signs that 20th Century Fox (with Watts overseeing), Fox 2000, and Fox Searchlight (Bob Iger has suggested they won’t be touching it) could stay as in and just report directly to Alan Horn. Not unlike other studios like Marvel, Pixar, and Lucasfilm under the Disney umbrella
