Alita Battle Angel 2 release date: When does Alita: Battle Angel 2 come out? Getting Alita: Battle Angel to the big screen took over 16 years of hard work and many steps. When the movie finally came out in 2019, it was the end of a long-term dream project for director James Cameron, who had wanted to make the book come to life since 2003.
Alita: Battle Angel set up a second movie, and the series’ die-hard fans can’t wait to see more of their favorite Hunter-Warrior. Making movies isn’t quick or easy, though. When will there be another one like one of the best action movies of 2019?
The 2023 Writers Strike and the 2024 Actors Strike both caused delays in pre-production for new movies. But we’ve gathered all the details on the Alita: Battle Angel 2 release date and more to keep you up to date. Also, James Cameron stated that there will be two more Alita movies. That is correct, multiple.
Alita: Battle Angel 2 Release Date Rumors
At the very least, the Alita: Battle Angel successor should come out in the summer of 2025.
Producer Jon Landau has said that work is already beginning on the movie. Not yet, but he says that he, director Robert Rodriguez, and star Rosa Salazar are all still thinking about it.
He also told The Wrap, “[James and I] always talk about how much we’d love to do another Alita movie.” We’re on board since the first movie was one of his best.
With all of the new Avatar movies coming out, Cameron may be busy, but we believe what he says. He probably will get more Alita flicks if he wants them. Also, he said that more than one movie is being made, so if he’s sure, we are too.
Who Will Be in Alita: Battle Angel 2?
Rosa Salazar, who plays Alita, is the only cast member who is certain to be in Alita: Battle Angel 2. That she loves the part and would be necessary for a return is something she has said.
This is what Salazar told The Digital Fix about Alita 2: “I will fight to make it happen until the end of time.” The technology that lets me record my act lets me make this movie whenever I want. This follow-up could be done in five years, but I don’t think it should take that long. It seems like a story that should go on.”
This is who is likely to be in Alita: Battle Angel 2:
- Rosa Salazar as Alita
- Christoph Waltz as Dr. Dyson Ido
- Edward Norton as Nova
- Jennifer Connolly as Chiren
- Ed Skrein as Zapan
What is the Story of Alita: Battle Angel 2?
We think the second movie will be about Alita’s trip to Zalem to fight Nova. Nova, who rules over Iron City from his throne, is the main bad guy in the Alita world. Even though he has puppets to do his work, Alita wants to catch him.
At the end of the first movie, Alita saw Hugo, the young man she had fallen in love with, being torn apart by a defense ring with sharp edges. Hugo was killed by Nova as he tried to get to the promised land of Zalem. Of course, this happened after Alita had to take Hugo’s head off and turn him into a robot too.
Do You Have a Trailer for Alita: Battle Angel 2?
I think the earliest we could see an Alita 2 trailer is early 2025. However, a sequel has not been officially announced yet.
To be clear, our guess for summer 2025 is just that—a guess. If we stick to it, a trailer will probably come out in the spring of 2025.
Alita: Battle Angel 2 is set to release in summer 2025, following the success of the 2019 movie. The sequel, set to follow the story of Alita’s journey to Zalem to fight Nova, the main bad guy in the Alita world.
The cast includes Rosa Salazar as Alita, Christopher Waltz as Dr. Dyson Ido, Edward Norton as Nova, Jennifer Connolly as Chiren, and Ed Skrein as Zapan. The sequel is expected to be a sequel to the popular Avatar movie series, with a trailer expected in early 2025.
