Christoph Waltz Tells That Alita: Battle Angel Will Not Get A Sequel Because Of Disney

Christoph Waltz still wants to make Alita: Battle Angel 2, but suspects that it can’t happen now that Disney owns the property. With the purchase of Fox (which was completed last year), Mouse House took control of lucrative science-fiction franchise companies such as Alien, Predator, and Planet of the Apes from James Cameron alongside the mega-tentpole avatar. You also own the rights to another filmmaker’s science fiction project, Alita: Battle Angel, a live adaptation of the cyberpunk manga/anime that Cameron developed over several years before being entrusted to Robert Rodriguez directly instead.

It was first premiered in 2019

Alita: Battle Angel comes out in February 2019 (about a month before Disney officially takes Fox over) and stars as Rosa Salazar, the title hero, a cyborg who wakes up in the 26th century without remembering his past but is helped by the friendly scientist Dr. Dyson Ido (Waltz). Following the old rule of thumb that a movie must double its budget to make a profit, Alita was a modest success, but still a success: $ 405 million at the box office with a budget of $ 170 million. Nevertheless, a sequel still has to be announced and Waltz suspects that this has more to do with the new owners of the franchise than anything else.

Disney is the biggest hurdle for Alita 2 

It goes without saying that Waltz rightly says that Disney is currently the biggest roadblock for Alita 2. After its acquisition, the studio canceled a number of Fox development films (including the inexpensive adaptation of Mouse Guard) and hesitated to give the green light to something new that wasn’t part of a brand. extremely profitable as an avatar. As mentioned, Alita is just right; The original film worked pretty well, but far from the box office numbers Disney earned through live or IP remakes like MCU and Star Wars, the studio has little incentive to develop a follow-up. At the same time, the film has received decent reviews, critics praised its stunning graphics and the way it combines Cameron’s science fiction interests with Rodriguez’s class themes. Movie fans were also receptive and have since been demanding a return to Alitas Suite.

Fans urged to give green light to the project

A typical example: as of February, fans had the #AlitaSequel trend on Twitter to encourage Disney to give the green light to the project. Some of them went further and even paid to raise a banner for Alita: Battle Angel 2 at the Oscars 2020 a few days later. Additionally, Salazar (like Waltz) is on file that she would like to return for the sequel, and producer Jon Landau has expressed support for these fan campaigns by encouraging them to continue to bother Disney with requests to make this happen. possible. Suffice it to say that there is an audience that wants more Alita. This is another question of whether it is large enough to grab the attention of the mouse house.
