“Alita” Sequel Could Happen At Disney+


#Filmmaker #Robert #Rodriguez is having a bit of a moment right now thanks to his work helming an episode of “The #Mandalorian”. #He’s also scored a key regular producing role on another “Star #Wars” series in the works in the wake of that.

Then there’s “Alita: #Battle #Angel,” the mega-budget sci-fi film he helmed in 2019. #It received mixed-positive reviews at the time and proved not that profitable, snagging a solid $405 million in box-office but from a costly $150-200 million budget.

#As the months have passed since the film’s release though, it has seemingly grown in estimation with many seemingly open to a follow-up. #In a new interview with #Forbes, #Rodriguez says he thinks one could happen at the #Disney+ service:

“I think anything is possible. #Disney bought #Fox, and they have #Disney+, so that is worth the conversation. 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. #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” spent many years in development as it was originally going to be a #James #Cameron-directed feature (#Cameron remains on board as producer). #As a result, it had to swallow a lot of development costs, something a sequel would not have to worry about.

#Alternatively, the property could be followed up with a series – one using the “Mandalorian” #ScreenCraft tech to keep the budget down as well. #For now, #Disney has no plans for a follow-up.
