The Director’s Optimistic Take

In a recent interview with The Wrap, Rodriguez expressed his and James Cameron’s enthusiasm towards developing a sequel to Alita: Battle Angel. He mentioned, “Yeah, Jim [Cameron] and I always talk about how we’d love to do another Alita. That studio [20th Century] was bought by another studio [Disney]. They’re starting to make movies now. But that for a while 20th Century wasn’t making any of their movies. I think now you’re seeing a few rolling out. We would love to.”

The Aftermath of the Disney-Fox Merger

The Disney-Fox merger did create a hiatus in the production of 20th Century projects, but as the dust settles, there seems to be movement in the cinematic universe once again. The Alita sequel, although not officially greenlit yet, appears to be on the horizon as the studios resume their filmmaking ventures.

Leveraging Avatar’s Technological Innovations

Producer Jon Landau highlighted that the technological advancements developed for Avatar 2: The Way of Water would be utilized in the making of the Alita sequel. He stated, “I think what we’ve learned from Avatar is how much more facial nuance and subtlety that we can get into characters that we want to be emotional and emote that are humanoid. Alita would not have been possible, but for what we did on Avatar. Avatar: Way of Water would not be what it is but what we did for Alita. And now let’s put that back and give it back to Alita.”

The Evolution of Alita’s Story

With a thousand pages of notes and a trilogy plan from Cameron, the Alita universe is ripe for exploration. The potential story arcs and character developments, coupled with technological advancements, pave the way for a sequel that could elevate the franchise to new heights.
