The 'Alien' series for Disney+ presents its promising protagonist

    After ‘Alien: Covenant‘ (Ridley Scott, 2017) It seemed difficult to avoid a new period of hibernation for a saga in low hours but we are talking about aliens, creatures made to survive and annihilate us in an elegantly macabre way and, when the union between Fox and Disney became official, his name came to light again.

    Confirmed Noah Hawley as showrunner of a series set in what Ridley Scott saw fit to start in 1979 with ‘Alien, the eighth passenger‘, the fifth installment of the franchise disappeared from any plan but the hopes placed on the Disney+ episodic adventure They have started to rise.

    “It’s not a Ripley story. He is one of the great characters of all time and I think the story has been told perfectly, I don’t want to spoil it, ”Hawley clarifies hastily in an interview with Vanity Fair. “It is a story that also takes place on Earth. Alien stories are always trapped… trapped in a prison, trapped in a spaceship. I thought it would be interesting to open it up a bit so that the ‘what if you can’t contain it?’ thing is more immediate.”

    Sydney Chandlerwhich we have seen in ‘Don’t worry, dear’ (Olivia Wilde, 2022), has been announced as the protagonist of the series.

    For the clueless, let’s remember that the unrepeatable ‘Alien, the eighth passenger‘ (Ridley Scott, 1979) started a franchise that continued with the great ‘aliens: return‘ (James Cameron, 1986) to, since then, disappoint and convince different sectors of his public. TO ‘Alien³‘ (David Fincher, 1992) and ‘Alien: Resurrection‘ (Jean-Pierre Jeunet, 1997) followed the exploitation of the new millennium with ‘Alien vs. Predator’ (Paul W.S. Anderson, 2004) y ‘Alien vs. Predator 2‘ (Colin Strause, Greg Strause, 2007). Scott himself put himself back in command with ‘Prometheus‘ (2012) and, although Neill Blomkamp y Sigourney Weaver they were ready to help with an impossible’Alien 5‘, Scott insisted with the devastatingly flat ‘Alien: Covenant’ (2017).

    “They’re great monster movies, but they’re not just monster movies,” Hawley notes. “They are about humanity caught between our primordial, parasitic past and our artificial intelligence future, both trying to kill us. Here are human beings who cannot go forward or go back. That sounds very interesting to me.”
