Robert Rodriguez Keeping the Hope Alive for ‘Alita: Battle Angel’ Sequel

It was just about one year ago that #AlitaSequel was trending on Twitter, with fans of Robert Rodriguez‘s 2019 movie Alita: Battle Angelbegging Disney to make a sequel. Alas, unless Alita has been making a ton of money on home video (here’s hoping), there’s probably a good chance that Disney isn’t all that keen on making a sequel to the cyberpunk action film.

After all, it only made $400 million on a $170 million production budget at the box office.

Then again, anything is possible in the world of Hollywood. Speaking with Forbes, Rodriguez expressed that very sentiment, wondering aloud if streaming could help bring Alita back.

“I think anything is possible. Disney bought Fox, and they have Disney+, so that is worth the conversation,” Rodriguez told the site. “I know other people would love to see another, and I would love to do another one. As far as where it would go or how it would be made, I think streaming has opened up many opportunities such as sequels.”

He added, “It’s already a pre-sold concept, it’s already got a built-in audience that wants to see it, and then it’s delivered to them in a way that’s the easiest for them to consume. So, it’s not a bad idea.”

Alita: Battle Angel came to an end with a sequel tease – Alita is taking the fight to Nova – but whether or not it ever happens is entirely in the hands of Disney’s executives.
