Disney will own the company and for the sake of taking advantage of brand name recognition, it's my bet 'ALIEN' and 'PREDATOR' movies will still be released by Fox.

It makes no sense to release 'ALIEN' or 'PREDATOR' movies under the Disney banner and as they own Fox now (as of 20th, March), there's no point in releasing future movies under a different studio name, either.  They own the studio, 'lock, stock and barrel.'

Once the settlement is made and the handshake is done, there will be some staff shake ups and it will be business as usual for Fox, but the profits will go in a different direction than they have for the past decades. 

On the surface, nothing will have changed.  Fox is a world recognised brand name.  Disney will want to capitalise on that.  They  will instill changes but ultimately what it boils down to is business for the old company under new ownership.  Fox won't cease to exist and will still make movies in the future, most likely releasing new titles under existing IP's to bolster public confidence once again.

Outwardly, to us, there will be no visible change.  It will be the shareholders that have changed completely, but the institution itself will continue to exist - with changes - but it will still push out product the public is familiar with. 

How that quality will change, is anyone's guess right now.

I hope Disney (which is a more competent studio making movies, IMO) commission someone to supervise the development some of the movie franchises owned by Fox; quality terms, not marketing terms.

Some of the stuff they've done lately with Alien, Predator, has been pretty erratic and terrible (as well as box office failures more or less). Hope someone in Disney comes with an actual good plan to create good movie series around those.

Considering how Disney handled Star Wars, they need like a full army of avp fans to help not screw this series up. Nah don't put your hopes up.

Disney didn't do anything to Star Wars, that was Lucasfilm.

Disney has been pretty good with letting the subsidiary companies run their properties the way they want.

You send 10 AVP fans over there and the next day you will have a war over 100 different directions they want to take the series in.

There are always things that 90% of the fans can easily agree on. That's where they can help. Preventing stuff like The Predator's endings and David making the Alien.

Well... they discarded Lucas's ideas for the sequel trilogy. Lucasfilm WAS George Lucas.

Oh well, after the prequel trilogy I don't blame them for doing so XD At least Rogue One was good :P

Yeah, while Disney made mistakes, that was not one of them   :)
