While speaking to Forbes, Rodriguez answered some questions about the future of the Alita: Battle Angel franchise:
“I think anything is possible. Disney bought Fox, and they have Disney+, so that is worth the conversation. I know other people would love to see another, and I would love to do another one. As far as where it would go or how it would be made, I think streaming has opened up many opportunities such as sequels. It’s already a pre-sold concept, it’s already got a built-in audience that wants to see it, and then it’s delivered to them in a way that’s the easiest for them to consume. So, it’s not a bad idea.”

UPDATE: Rodriguez also spoke with Inverse and had more to say:
“I’d love to make the sequel. I’ve just been busy with this stuff, and Jim’s just getting back from New Zealand. But yeah, we’d love to explore that. You know, Fox got bought by Disney, and I’m not sure what they’re doing with it yet. It’s kind of the wrong time to ask people, with everything that’s going on in the world. It’s hard to know. The studio was just bought up right after Alita was coming out. So I’m not sure what type of movies they’re making. Who knows what the future of that studio is where they’re where the property lies. I would love to make a sequel. And Jim would love to make a sequel.“
