James Cameron seemingly confirms more Alita: Battle Angel movies aleady being worked on

We’re all big, big fans of Alita: Battle Angel here at FTN HQ and we’ve been reporting over the last few months that we may be seeing more and more movement on the possibility of a sequel – or sequels – finally happening,

Heck, at one point there was talk of it being a Disney+ series but, in the end, especially after the success of Alita producer James Cameron’s Avatar sequel, it looked like the wheels were finally greased and things are beginning to happen.

Though, despite positive commentary from director Robert Rodriquez, and producer Jon Landau [“We’re talking to Robert and talking to Rosa and all is good.”], nothing seemed concrete.

Cameron, in a recent interview about his career and movies in general, seemingly confirmed that work on the highly anticipated sequel IS already underway: “On Avatar, I’m working in Wellington and Los Angeles,” Cameron says, adding: “and on the new Alita: Battle Angel films, I’ll be working in Austin.”

Man, Alita was a surprise movie for me that I adored, with the talent behind it, I knew it would be worth a watch but I hadn’t anticipated my love for it, so having a sequel with the same talent behind it – Rosa Salazar was adorable and totally badass as Alita – would be great.

Wait… did he say ‘films’?! Are we getting more than one new Alita movie? Now, that would be sweet!

Thoughts? I know you have them! Voice-off in the usual ways on FTN’s FacebookTwitter and Instagram

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
