Robert Rodriguez is pretty busy right now with We Could Be Heroes on Netflix and the upcoming Book of Boba Fett which is filming now for Disney+. But fans of Alita: Battle Angel are still asking for a sequel to the 2019 film, something Forbes asked the writer/director about recently.
“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.”
Disney showed that it is focusing heavily on their new streaming service, so getting a sequel to the film or even taking the franchise into a series could be appealing to the studio.
