ALITA: BATTLE ANGEL Sequel May Be One Step Closer To Happening According To Producer Jon Landau

Alita: Battle Angel remains a massively popular movie among its fans, and a sequel might be one step closer to becoming a reality based on new comments from producer Jon Landau. Find out more right here!

We've been hearing rumblings about a sequel to 2019's Alita: Battle Angel for some time now, but with no official word on whether the franchise has a future at Disney, any rumours should be taken with a pinch of salt. 

The world premiere of Avatar: The Way of Water took place in London last night, and Alita producer Jon Landau was on hand to discuss a possible follow-up from director Robert Rodriguez. As you might recall, James Cameron originally planned to direct before handing the project over to The Book of Boba Fett helmer so he could focus on his Avatar sequels. 

"There's a little film called Alita: Battle Angel that we'd love to circle back and do a sequel to," Landau confirms in the video below. "I'm talking to Robert about that and hopefully, that comes to fruition. I never put a timeframe on anything 'cause you guys will hold it against me."

That's a very promising update and lines up with what Rodriguez said last December when he confirmed meeting with Cameron to discuss what might come next. 

Alita: Battle Angel was a success at the box office with a $405 million haul globally, but received mixed reviews from critics. Cameron, who is now working with Disney on his Avatar franchise, produced and co-wrote the movie, so he probably has the power to convince the studio it's a property worth revisiting. 

We'll see what happens, but with fans making it clear they're interested in a sequel, there's a chance Disney will take note. It all boils down to whether they consider another Alita movie a worthwhile investment, especially as the first had a reported production budget of $150 million - $200 million.
