As the title says the release schedule for Disney-Fox and can be found here https://deadline.com/2019/05/star-wars-movies-new-mutants-disney-fox-release-schedule-1202608933/ .
Unfortunately there is no mention of any Alien Movie, and because of that 4 movie release limit for Fox there can not be any 'till 2021
Maybe we can get something else like more shorts. It would be better than nothing. Collectively, they were more enjoyable than Covenant IMO.
On the other hand, this gives another year for them to make a decent movie.
I think its a case of the Franchise maybe being on HOLD!
Alien Day 2019 was the Ideal Place to TEASE plans for the Franchise but we have had No Indication apart from a continuation with Novels, Comics and Games.
It will be interesting to see how much Championing for another ALIEN movie will be made by James Cameron and Sigourney Weaver, it appears Blomkamp has maybe accepted its Unlikely at the Moment.
Regarding any TV Project we had those Rumors, and Alien Day would have been a ideal Marketing/Teaser Day.. but Nothing..
Once Production is in Full Swing, or Finished for Ridley Scotts show Raised by Wolves, i think maybe we could get some Clarity from RS as far as IF he is or is NOT working on any Alien Project, be that NOW, near Future or in Years to come.
I think its Unlikely we would get a Alien Covenant 2 that would be similar to what ever plans they had in 2017, it would seem unlikely we get NO such Production any time soon (12-24 Months) and its a matter of Time as far as WHEN can they cast a Fassbender to play a 35 Year Old Male looking Android?
Maybe 2026 we will get a ALIENS 2 (aka Blomkamp Alien 5) but then they would have to have it set in the year 2226? Certainly if Production began in 2024-2025 then they would have to have it set 40 years after ALIENS?
Who knows what CGI would be like in 2024-2025 though!

Maybe they could do Alternative Universe Movies?
A Weyland TV show or Movie released in 2023 with the Prometheus TED Talk as the Prologue?
Then we Cut to.... 20 Years Later....

BigDave Yeah we talked about that. I think you coined the series as "Building Better Worlds."
In a short range of time, the easiest thing to do is 'Alien awakening', directed and produced by Ridley Scott, but unfortunatly i think that Will not happen. Ridley Scott understood that and have moved on to 'raised by wolves' TV show. Ridley Scott salvaged the ideas that he could from alien awakening film, not infringing intellectual property rights. His legacy is unquestionable, regarding Alien saga.
The best thing to do is to start from the scratch.
I hope that, with 'raised by wolves', Ridley Scott can give us some sort of closure about the events of Prometheus and alien covenant, stablishing a parallelism between raised by wolves and the alien prequel universe.
I won't jump the gun and assume Disney have zero plans of any new Alien film over the next 8 years... BUT this is rather disappointing news.
Thanks for the heads up though, I got it front paged.
From what I can make of that schedule Disney have a very very forward and meticulously planned release schedule, with perhaps several of teams working on projects and assigned future projects. There are numerous 'untitled Disney live action' that you could assume are in various stages of early development, but are essentially Greenlit?
While the companies they have acquired like Fox, Marvel and Pixar do not as much of regimented system.
Could it be that although an 'untitled Fox Live Action' film (potentially an Alien title) is not listed, it could just be that such a project is in the works but not yet Greenlit, pending hype from Alien Day?
I am not very saddened by this, looking at how the Alien movies have been since AR until now. Now if I would have to choose between a new Alien movie if it would be like Covenant or to have no one I would rather choose no movie at all. Learn how to write characters and then make a movie but until then no thanks.
Those short movies that were released were better than Covenant to be honest.
