The #AlitaSequel Banner Flies – Jon Landau responds and Rosa Salazar reacts

The banner flew over Disney Studios HQ in Burbank before heading to the Dolby Theater where the Academy Awards were held.

After a successful flight, undeterred by less than ideal weather, many people took to Twitter to share their reactions to the “#AlitaSequel #AlitaArmy” banner flying high above their city. One such person was the famous YouTube vlogger, Jessica Chobot:

“DAMN. That is some passion for Alita. #AlitaSequel #Oscars”

Jessica Chobot wasn’t the only famous person to react – Elle Lamont, the actress who played Screwhead in Alita: Battle Angel, shared her thoughts on Instagram:

And Alita herself (well, she’s Alita to us) also reacted:

We were extremely happy to see the reaction of Rosa Salazar, the star of Alita: Battle Angel. Her happiness means the world to us.

Update (February 13, 2028): Rosa Salazar makes an Instagram post giving the #AlitaArmy an Oscar for Outstanding Performance as a fan base.

But as happy as that made us, it wasn’t enough just to get responses from celebrities and other people on the ground; we needed to reach the eyes of the executives at Disney. We believe we have accomplished that. There were many, many articles written about the banner flight after word began to spread on Twitter almost virally.

And from that came a response from Jon Landau, a producer on Alita: Battle Angel and the man who told us to keep “peppering” Disney with our requests for an Alita sequel:

“Thank you to The Alita Army for your never ending support and for making Alita: Battle Angel a unique part of the Oscars….” – Jon Landau

No doubt this event has reached the eyes and ears of the decision makers at Disney (and other studios, to be honest). It should give Cameron and Landau more leverage in their negotiations with Disney. But we’re not done yet. Stay tuned for more events and how you can contribute.
