Not interested in a reboot nor remake of ALIEN. As far as I’m concerned, the film is as close to perfection as humanly possible. But, if this film does get made, I hope it leads to the rest of the films being released in a lavish 4K set.

Sigourney Weaver as Ripley, is irreplaceable.

Agreed.  The only thing about the film that could really stand to be changed is updating the technology of all the human equipment....

...and that would ruin the film.
Ridley Scott kind of explained this. The Characters of ALIEN are normal and low level people so low level tech makes sense. The Characters of PROMETHEUS are Billionaires so High Level Tech makes sense
It still dont explain how prometheus has way more advanced technology than the common person 150 years later on in aliens and another 350 for auriga in alien resurrection, that would be like someone in the 1700s has still to this day better technology than I have in my home....

If they do new movies and as its disney and what they did in star wars: they probably will stick to using the old technology stuff that we´ve seen in alien and aliens/alien3.
Love in star wars the new sequel that the computers still run the same system and graphics :P

Yeah. Change the technological design is one of the worst ideas ever. Alien, Isolation, S, Cube are perfect examples of retro-futurism.
But I don't think it's worth worrying about. As horrible as Disney's Star Wars was, they kept the technological map of the OT. So I'm more than sure - there is no need to worry about the visual style.

Making the Sequel Trilogy look exactly like the OT was one of the most boring choices in the films. The Prequels, love em or hate em, gave us a grand tapestry of new tech that we slowly watched devolve into the aesthetic of the Imperial era over the course of three films.

And then when we got to the Sequels, set 30 years after the original trilogy and set in a time when the New Republic is now in charge of the Galaxy... everything just looks exactly the same as what it was after the Empire squeezed the life out of everything? With the same old X-Wings and TIE Fighters zipping around?

Canto Bight is the only planet in the trilogy that visually seemed to progress the story past the fall of the Empire.

It's not about that, but about the fact that if Disney decides to keep the visual style of the classic Alien, they will do it flawlessly.

And, starting with AR, the return of the classic style is what the franchise needs. Enough odious experiments!

While it would be nice to see the "used future" aesthetic make a return, I hope Disney doesn't follow it too slavishly like they did with the Star Wars sequels. Does anyone want to see a carbon copy of the Nostromo? It's been done, and it was done brilliantly the first time. Vincent Ward's wooden planet idea for Alien3 may have pushed the envelope out too far, but that's better than dialling it right back imho.

I’d like to see lots of different sequels to Aliens.  Each attempt could be something different.

So more or less continue what Fox was doing.

No, I mean sequels that directly connect to the film Aliens.  Spin it in different ways and see what sticks.  I know the suggestion is unrealistic but it would be fun.  We’ve already had a few post-Aliens series such as the original DH run, the Alien 3 film, and the recently released Gibson series.  I enjoy all the different takes on what could happen post-Aliens.

I realize that most likely these could take place in comics.  There is also the possibility of doing one good film Rey-con of Alien 3, but there is no guarantee that it will be better.

I'd rather just see different filmmakers come in and do standalones rather than just see an endless loop of unrelated sequels to one movie from the middle of the franchise.

^This, new standalone movies with new charachters and new places and doing new things, but also sticking to the world of aliens and correct retro future designs based on alien-alien3 lore.

The problem with stand alones is explaining what's going on to the characters leading to long expository passages, which the audience is already all over.

Having Ripley in the sequels means dealing with that in a very short few passages of dialogue.

I don't think it necessarily think standalone means we have to be picking up with them at the start of something where we're ahead of them. Standalones can pick up the situation on the run so we can avoid the dull part where the characters catch up to us.

Honestly, that kind of thing seems perfectly reasonable to me now. I still see Windows XP machines in use in some corners of my business. I see all sorts of antiquated shit.

There are ways you could do it, without standing around having a chat, but you can't assume the audience has seen an Alien film before.
