For instance, Ghost in the Shell, which came out in 2017 and had Scarlett Johansson in the lead, was completely felt disappointing to fans as it ruined the whole intention of the movie by casting a non-Japanese actor. And fans feel that something similar could happen to Alita Battle Angel 2.

Would There Be Enough Source Material For An Alita Battle Angel 2 Anime/Series?
In short, there would be enough source material available for Alita Battle Angel 2 anime/series. The original film, Alita 2019, had only four volumes of the manga series, which showcased the 12 chapters of the content.
However, the original story of “Battle Angel Alita: Last Order” and “Battle Angel Alita Mars Chronicle” continued and extended to the 9 volumes of the manga series.
This means that are 5 volumes still left, which will be showcased as an anime series or movie. If it adapts into an anime series, each episode will be around 20 minutes.
