Script Analysis

Paradise Lost is the early iteration of the Alien: Covenant Script. In this version the prologue was different and Elizabeth Shaw and David arrive at Planet 4. This later was exchanged for the white room scene in which David and Weyland discuss Gods and Creators. Connor Coulson(Prometheus By Minute) and I discuss the early script and the changes that were made.

Art Analysis

I draw paralells to the events that take place in the story Paradise Lost and how it relates to The Crossing. Various symbolism and visual queues that align with each other.
