Congrats on the gig, Old One! Have you gotten a chance to see your work translated on screen yet, or are you as in the dark as the rest of us?

Those short films will be canon? When do they take place?

As per the original Tongal description, I believe they're supposed to be set around the time of Alien. The design, character references, etc. were all limited solely to the original film (which is why I was pretty shocked when they went with the Covenant Alien reference suit but, like Hicks said, Fox must have had it on standby and lent it out to each film).

Meaning around 2122? Hmm wonder if they will try to tie anything on it to other material and where the alien on these stories come from.

They way I see it, I'm more interested in the shorts as examples of what these filmmakers can do and as their individual takes on the Alien universe (within the realms of the restrictions they had to work in, of course) more so than I am in them as hard "canon."

Hoping Old One storyboarded the Xeno to do some crab-walk.

I just love me some crab-walk!
