HeyUGuys) that the sets being currently built at Pinewood Studios recreates the original Space Jockey set from Alien. They also allude to the quote from the press release that referred to "Alien DNA" being literal. The original thought the DNA talk meant it would use elements from the film but not the actual alien. Of course this could turn out to be false but it sounds promising if true.

“Despite that press release that seemed to indicate there were no aliens in the movie, the familiar HR Giger-style aliens do appear. Big ones apparently.”
“Part of the film will be shot in Morocco. I’ve heard that some sort of archaeological dig where they discover alien DNA takes place there and that DNA gives them the coordinates for an alien world. I’ve also heard Morocco is being used for alien planet landscapes so I’m not sure if it’s an archaeological dig on another planet.”
