Disney-Fox merger and the business aspects related to it are the main reasons why Alita Battle Angel 2 is taking so long as per the lead actress Rosa Salazar.

Alita: Battle Angel Sequel Release Date to be Shifted by Petitions?
Alita sequel has not been ordered yet as the producers thought that the movie was not a commercial success. However, fans who have watched the first Alita: Battle Angel on home and digital media believe that people had no idea about it due to poor marketing. It is why they started an online petition to show their support and asked for a sequel, telling the makers that people will see the sequel in theaters if it is made.

Alita: Battle Angel 2 Production Design: Change in looks of Alita?
Alita: Battle Angel sequel will take a few years even if they start production today and fans are wondering whether producer James Cameron and director Robert Rodriguez would change the looks of Alita to please the fanbase. Many moviegoers complained about Alita’s (Rosa Salazar) eyes in the first movie saying they were drawn too big.
But the visual effects supervisor Eric Saindon said that Cameron and Rodriguez don’t care about the haters and they always wanted to bigger on the eyes, closely resembling the original manga series.
