Even producer James Cameron, director Robert Rodriguez and actress Rosa Salazar are also with fans as they want a second Alita movie and script has already been written. Disney is under a lot of pressure as the petition for Alita: Battle Angel 2 has reached around 120,000 signature and there could be an official announcement soon.
Fan Demands for Alita: Battle Angel Sequel
Alita: Battle Angel was released in February this year but it wasn’t that popular at that time as their was nominal marketing and promotion for the same. A petition on change.org was put up to convince the makers to come up with the Alita: Battle Angel sequel. While it had not many signatures earlier, ever since the movie released on home media, there have been a sudden surge in the number of people asking for the sequel.
While Disney has not given any response, but the number of signature crossing the 120,000 figure will be enough to ring a bell in their ears. The delay in the production of Alita: Battle Angel 2 could be due to the Disney-Fox merger and the business aspect of it, as suggested by the Alita actor Rosa Salazar.
Cast Support for Alita: Battle Angel 2
Alita: Battle Angel part 2 will happen for sure as the cast and crew of the movie are in full support for the sequel. Rosa Salazar who plays the main lead of Alita has said that she would love to reprise the role in the upcoming sequels of the movie.
Even Edward Norton, who was revealed to be the main villain Nova at the end is positive about coming back for the Alita: Battle Angel 2 movie. The sequel could have Alita becoming the motorball champions and reaching the city of Zalem and fight with Nova, taking revenge for her friends.
