Question ALIENS - Is that a tasty egg?

I'm sure all Aliens fans know, when the credits finish rolling (I think it is just the directors cut) you can hear the sound of an egg opening indicating there will be a third movie...

However does anyone know the reasoning behind this?

Is it just a "nice easter egg"? or did James Cameron know there was be a third or perhaps was hoping to direct it.

Whatever the reason, surely somebody must have already know the plot for the third film?

What is it all about???

It was just a bit of fun with the credits, like Darth Vader breathing at the end of The Phantom Menace.

Is it true Anakin casts Darth Vadar's shadow in the Phantom Menace too? I think so...

Wasn't that just in the teaser poster for the film?

It is in the film, especially clear when you pause the DVD.

It is outside his house I think, around the time he is leaving home.

There was a spoof picture of Bart done (the simpsons) with the shadow of Homer. I wish I had that pic!

It did in the teaser poster but im not sure you see it in the film.

Although Lucas likes to change his films around so much you never know!

The official line is that the fact that the interaction of shadows makes it vaguely look like Anakin is casting Vaders shadow for like one frame in the film is entirely coincidental. Obviously the poster shot was deliberate.

I always thought it was a face hugger scurrying from one side to the other.
