Let’s see where this one goes, it’s be interesting to see if it’s possible to edit all these shorts together, maybe create a very interesting whole. I’m seeing a possibility for a narrative path of sorts

Looks to revolve around a burster.

Given the runtime of these shorts, I wouldn't expect a mature alien in this one.

Will we be seeing any grown xenomorphs in these at some point?

Yes, the trailers have already shown the Covenant adult in at least one of the shorts.

Would be cool if somebody added a new design, doubt it'll happen. They might not even be allowed.

Alien.

Budget likely wouldn't permit -- we've gone one film with no Alien, and one with a cheap CG hugger. The brief said they had to stick to concepts from the first movie, so new designs likely wouldn't have been allowed anyway.

They all needed Bob Burns.

If you wanna do the best non silver screen alien, you just gotta have "the right crew".

If i'd been able to find a US producer for a pitch and got the gig I would've called Odd Studios pretty quick :P Cast and crew I could get for free; spend all the money on sets, effects and food.

Pfft, tell them they'll get nourishment by way of self-fulfillment in a job well done, save a ton on the food budget.

Likewise, if the cast or crew try to rest, remind them of what Ron Perlman said in 'Alien Resurrection'.

True, could add touches though, like a different coloured Egg etc.

Like Jurassic Park Dinos in subsequent films.

EDIT: On second thoughts would probably be met with " That's no meh Alien Egg, why's it purple, The LORE"

I kind of doubt that - the Alien movies have changed stuff every step of the way and the fandom has been (mostly) accepting of cosmetic changes, or at least accepting that those things happen and that it's not the end of the world. I doubt casual viewers would notice, let alone care.
