But the director-producer understands the fact that he can’t handle and Alita and Avatar sequels at the same time and hence he has given the responsibility for the cyberpunk franchise to Robert Rodriguez. Alita: Battle Angel 2 story will be based on Yukito Kishiro’s “Gunnm” manga series and the actors along with the crew are waiting for Disney to give approval to the sequel. James Cameron working on the Avatar sequels won’t affect the Alita sequel release date as proper arrangements have been made.
