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).
