ALITA: BATTLE ANGEL - James Cameron And Robert Rodriquez Are Determined To Make The Sequel Happen

It's been a few years since Alita: Battle Angel was released, but hardcore fans are still clamouring for a sequel. Good thing both James Cameron and Robert Rodriguez are determined to make it happen!

2019's Alita: Battle Angel received a mixed response from critics, but fans of the original manga seemed to embrace the sci-fi adaptation, and have been campaigning for a sequel ever since.

Recently, producer Jon Landau confirmed that discussions have been taking place when he stated that "we'd love to circle back and do a sequel" to Alita, and it sounds like the two men who would be integral to a second film entering development are even more determined to get the ball rolling.

Director Robert Rodriguez and producer James Cameron took part in a dual-interview with Variety, and when the subject was brought up, Cameron urged his fellow filmmaker to swear a (virtual) blood oath to make Alita 2 a reality.

What are the chances of a follow-up actually happening? Honestly, pretty high! The first film didn't exactly set the box office alight, but it was a moderate success for 20th Century Studios (then Fox), and we have a feeling Cameron is going to have even more sway with the studio after Avatar: The Way of Water begins its run..

"Set several centuries in the future, the abandoned Alita is found in the scrapyard of Iron City by Ido, a compassionate cyber-doctor who takes the unconscious cyborg Alita to his clinic. When Alita awakens, she has no memory of who she is, nor does she have any recognition of the world she finds herself in. As Alita learns to navigate her new life and the treacherous streets of Iron City, Ido tries to shield her from her mysterious past."

What did you guys make of Alita: Battle Angel? Would you be interested in a sequel? Be sure to let us know in the comments section.
