Alita: Battle Angel sequel demands have once again increased after the Disney Fox merger. The cyberpunk movie based on the Japanese manga Battle Angel Alita was received with mixed response and a slow box-office opening. But with time, viewers noticed the gem of a movie and it became a huge hit in China and other international audiences.
Fans have been waiting for Alita sequel ever since that and now it is in the hands of Disney to greenlight the movie. James Cameron himself will be involved this time with the second installment of Alita: Battle Angel 2 and based on the DVD and digital media sales, Disney could soon approve the Alita sequel.
Alita: Battle Angel 2 Release Date and Plot
Alita: Battle Angel had a great world-building, showing the post-apocalyptic cities and the difference between the sky cities and the earth cities. Rosa Salazar, the actress who played the role of cyborg Alita did a great job and is on board for a sequel along with the director Robert Rodriguez.
I saw Alita: Battle Angel twice. Fucking amazing movie. James Cameron and Robert Rodriguez out done themselves, and Rosa Salazar's performance made it feel like she IS Alita. #AlitaBattleAngel
