Alita: Battle Angel 2 Release Date and Plot Speculations
Alita: Battle Angel sequel will follow the story of Alita played by Rosa Salazar on a revenge quest against the evil scientist Nova played by Edward Norton. It was seen in the first Alita movie that the cyborg warrior has won the motorball championship and secured her ticket to the City of Zalem where the story of the sequel will take place.
Alita 2 release date can’t happen for at least 2-3 years in the future due to long production, filming and CGI-special effects time. Also, the Disney-Fox merger is very complex and the rights for Alita Battle Angel sequel are kind of delayed for a few more years.
