#AlitaSequel Banner Over the 92nd Oscars / Charity Drive

Please read carefully: To show how passionate the Alita: Battle Angel fan base is and to give the film studios faith that an Alita sequel will be successful, we want to fly a banner with “#AlitaSequel #AlitaArmy” over the red carpet at the Academy Awards for three hours. The quote we have for the banner to fly is $1,810. Our deadline is Wednesday, January 29, 2020.

But we don’t want to stop there. We also want to raise money that will benefit amputees. Our stretch goal is $4,000.  Money funded over $1,810 will be donated to Open Bionics.  If we fail to meet our first financial goal of $1,810, all of the donations that we received will be given to Open Bionics. Open Bionics develops affordable prosthetic limbs for amputees.  Their mission is “to make beautiful bionic limbs more accessible.”

Why we chose Open Bionics: When thinking of a good cause to work for, we remembered the partnership that the Alita: Battle Angel movie design team had made with Open Bionics. Together, they designed an affordable Alita: Battle Angel themed cover for prosthetic arms. One of these designs were modeled by Tilly Lockey at the premier of the Alita film where she met lead actress Rosa Salazar, whom she took many photos with.

This was our first exposure to both Tilly Lockey and Open Bionics. Her story warmed our hearts and we became fans of not just Alita, but also of Tilly who in an inspirational way we see as a real “battle angel”.

See Tilly Lockey’s story in the following video:

We would love to help other young people like Tilly be able to receive cool prosthetic arms. So we have decided to give all funds beyond what we need to fly the banner to Open Bionics so that they can bring some much needed assistance and joy to the world.


Update: The plane on it’s way to the Oscars and Disney HQ:

We are a community of Alita: Battle Angel fans who are dedicated to supporting Alita and Rosa Salazar POSITIVELY. If you want to help Alita get a sequel, the best way to do it is to be vocal, be active, and be positive. Being respectful to other fans and fan bases while using the "#AlitaArmy" hashtag will do #AlitaBattleAngel a lot of good. Alita needs us. We are all she's had for support.
