9 Things We Know About ‘Alien: Covenant’ So Far

3. The Film is Going Back to the Roots of Alien

Alien and Ripley

According to director Ridley Scott and writer John Logan, Alien: Covenant will lean more in the direction of Alien than its predecessor, Prometheus. In addition to acting as a Prometheus sequel, the film is also intended as a semi-prequel to the original Alien and alongside the following film in the prequel trilogy, aims to bridge the gap between the two. We’ll also be finding out more about why the xenomorphs were created. Ridley Scott told The Wrap:

“They’re going to go to the planet where the engineers came from, and come across the evolving creature that they had made. Why did they make it? Why would they make such a terrifying beast? It felt bio-mechanoid, it felt like a weapon. And so the movie will explain that, and reintroduce the alien back into it.”
