After Disney bought 20th Century Fox they have been working on giving a new life to the Alien franchise, and this year that marks the 40th anniversary of the original movie Alien (1979) seems to finally be the moment when those new projects are going to see the light.

Last month, the official Instagram account of the movies franchise published a series of images and clips showing the Weyland-Yutani facilities and the researches they are doing on the creatures from another planet. A so-called “6-part dossier exposing the secret of Weyland-Yutani”, and with the headline “The Alien universe expands 2019”.  Here we offer the link to the media contents in case you want to check them out.
