Aliens Reunion Planned at San Diego Comic Con for 30th Anniversary
A huge Aliens reunion is coming our way. At SDCC this year, director James Cameron, Sigourney Weaver, and the rest of the Aliens crew will greet fans in Hall H for the classic film's 30th anniversary.

July 18th marks 30 years since Aliens came out in theaters, and in honor of that occasion, SDCC is having a huge aliens panel, which will include Cameron, Weaver, as well as The Walking Dead and Aliens producer Gale Anne Hurd and cast members Bill Paxton, Lance Henriksen, Paul Reiser, Michael Bien, and even Carrie Henn, who played the little girl Newt and has since quit acting.

"That should be fun. Get the usual suspects back together," Cameron told EW.

The cast also recently reunited at an Alamo Drafthouse screening of the film, and Weaver said that she enjoyed coming together with the fans once again. "One of my great moments in … life, frankly, was by the time we got to that line, the whole audience yelled it with Ripley," she said, and added that it felt like a "horrific sing-along."

The time and day for the panel has yet to be released, and will likely be revealed with the rest of Fox's schedule. But we do know that Fox is also releasing a 30th anniversary edition of the Aliens Blu-ray on September 13, which will include a new interview with James Cameron on his creative process when making the film. Pre-orders will be taken at Fox's Comic Con booth on the show floor at SDCC, and the first 250 fans will get a special lithograph image of Ripley fighting the alien queen.
