Sean O’Connel of Cinemablend spoke to Rosa Salazar recently and asked her about the status of an Alita: Battle Angel sequel. She told Sean that she never stops pressuring James Cameron about getting back into that world.
“I harass them all the time. Like, it might become a legal issue soon. I email with James Cameron a lot. … And he’s always like, ‘I’m so down.’ Which is crazy to hear someone like James Cameron be like, ‘I’m so down!’ When we were in South by Southwest, I went over to Robert (Rodriguez)’s house and had tea, and was just talking about Alita. All three of us have so much love for it. It’s never outside of our line of vision, ever. Everything we do, we’re just sort of like, ‘How do we get back there?’ … We’re trying like hell to get her back out there because we know how much, just like (Undone), her story means so much to women, to young girls, to boys, to everybody. I think she represents something that transcends race, gender, all of that. So we’re working on it, man!”
