Alita: The Battle Angel, cyberpunk action movie, received a devoted cult following in the year of its publication. Despite the critics ‘ tentative reaction, the film overwhelmed the audience with its impressive visual style and effects. ‘Alita’ is a film treat filled with action that stays true to its manga roots and faithful.
The film, which adapts Yukito Kishiro’s 90s manga series, has been a long-term passion project for James Cameron. ‘Alita’ was eventually brought to life on the big screen after years of gestation. And the fans were not able to get enough. Good luck to us, as the film wraps up, you can presume that the creators have a future franchise in mind. But the recent merger between Disney and Fox made things a bit complicated for its future.
Alita’ has a massive fan-base full of loyal fans who call themselves ‘Alita Force’ and very active and articulate. There is a petition for an ‘Alita’ list on change.org with 140380 signatures from now on. The fans have raised money for the Oscar campaign.
Will There Be An Alita The Battle Angel 2?
While there are obviously plans for Alita: the sequel of Battle Angel, it has not yet been green-lit. Whether another film happens depends entirely on the first film being a hit at the box office, which is very high in the air.
While Alita 2 was green-lit today, it would still be a long time before the film finally came out. Alita: The battle Angel had a production of 20 years and, even after the ball rode with the director Robert Rodriguez, the introduction of rolling cameras took two and a half years.
Much of this is the result of preproduction delays and technological progress, which would both be significantly reduced to one sequel, but even then, a film would take two or three years to complete. It means an Alita: the Battle Angel sequel is expected to be released early in 2022.
Good news for the fans is that Rosa Salazar and top producers all indicated that, if given a chance, they want to work on a sequel. Johnson is the newest to join the aspirations of the Alita force.
Johnson told when asked about Alita: The Battle Angel 2, “After hearing James Cameron and Robert, about where the world might go-I think the greater it could go out, the better it would be,” he said, “There’s so much difference that could happen and so much stuff.” Johnson played scrap dealer Hugo, who fell in love with cyborg Alita (Salazar).
