The adaptation of Alita: Fighting Angel was released in 2019 and since then fans have been asking for a sequel to the feature film directed by Robert Rodriguez.
Sadly, Fox was not interested in producing a new movie due to the average box office by then standards.
Considering that the film grossed $ 404.9 million on a $ 2,000 million budget, it didn’t seem like a good idea to invest in the sequel.
But now that Disney owns the rights to the franchise, there is still hope for fans.
By the way, Rodriguez revealed to The Hollywood Reporter that once he completes his work on “The Boba Fett Book,” he plans to develop a proposal for a sequel to “Alita.”
So it’s possible that the skits will start to idealize in early 2022, when the ‘The Mandalorian’ spinoff comes to an end.
While there is no guarantee that Disney will embrace Rodriguez’s proposal with open arms, it’s possible the acclaimed filmmaker could convince the studio to publish on the idea.
If it depended on the fans, it would be a very promising move.
On Change.org, the order for a new film received more than 174,000 signatures.
To justify himself, the author specifies that:
“The film was made to generate sequels and has a large fan base, such as manga readers and an audience that has come to know the history of the adaptation. So there is a good reason to develop new ones. movies.
Written and produced by James Cameron (“Avatar”), the feature film stars Rosa Salazar, Jennifer Connelly, Eiza González, Christoph Waltz, Mahershala Ali, Michelle Rodriguez and Jackie Earle Haley.
