Alita: Battle Angel is one of the most popular American Cyberpunk action flick based on Japanese Maga artists Yukito Kishiro’s 1990s series Gunnm and its 1993 original video animation adaptation Battle Angel.
Directed by Robert Rodriquez, Alita: Battle Angel released on January 31, 2019 and emerged as one of the highest films of Rodriquez. Ever since the film released, there have been an everlasting debate whether Alita: Battle Angel 2 will arrive or not.
Here’s all you need to know about Alita: Battle Angel’s sequel:
Alita Battle Angel 2 plot
The story of the film revolves around Alita, who struggles hard to become a motor ball champion. She discovers herself after the death of Hugo, the man she loved the most. Post Hugo’s demise, Alita explores herself and wants to make a place of her own in the world. She also tries to return to the city of Zalem, which is mysterious and led by Nova.
Producer Jon Landau told CinemaBlend: “There was a training sequence that we shot in an alley Hugo is teaching her how to do the street Motorball. That’s really the only significant scene.”
Apart from the deleted scenes, it’s clear that Rodriguez and Cameron intended the movie to be a complete arc in itself. “She now knows who she is, and she’s got a target, and it’s still a complete story with a beginning, middle and end,” said Rodriguez.
But with mysteries continuing to surround Alita’s centuries-long life, Cameron pointed out that those haven’t even been completely explained in Yukito Kishiro’s original manga.
“Well, we obviously have a plan for that,” he told The Digital Spy. “But it’s cheeky to set up a sequel before you’re proven. That can blow back in your face. We think of something like Warcraft that was clearly set up with the intention to do sequels, and then it becomes mock-able because the film doesn’t succeed.
“But I don’t worry about stuff like that. If the film fails, it’s its own punishment, you know? It doesn’t matter if we get mocked on top of having failed,” he further added.
Alita Battle Angel 2 cast
Everyone knows, Rosa Salazar would definitely be returning to Alia Battel Angel’sequel. The reason behind her comeback is not because she is playing the lead role but becuase she loves it so much.
“I would play Alita till my last breath,” she said. “I would, and thanks to the performance capture technology, I probably could.”
It is likely that Christoph Waltz will also be back as Alita’s surrogate father Dr Dyson Ido.
Edward Norton will be back on-screen to play Nova, a charismatic leader.
Alita Battle Angel 2 Trailer
Now, there is no official trailer made available on the internet as of now. Before we demand for the trailer, let’s focus on on things at a time and hope that Disney greenlights the sequel first.
“What I think the Alita Army should do is keep peppering our family now at Disney and [let them know] how important it is to have another Alita movie and hopefully we’ll venture there one day,” he said.
Once a sequel has been greenlit, it can still take a while for production to begin though, Landau revealed:
“You’ve got to assume that’s going to take you 12 to 18 months to write a script. Assuming that script is great, you then have a six to 10 month pre-production. You then have a six-month shoot. You then have a year of post-production and that’s just any movie of this ilk.”
