“What I think the Alita Army should do is keep peppering our family now at Disney and [let them know] how important it is to have another Alita movie and hopefully we’ll venture there one day.” – film producer Jon Landau
This is where you’ll receive your #AlitaNews updates.
Alita fans rallied to bring Alita: Battle Angel from far behind John Wick in the final round in The Movie Cellar’s #CellarPicks2019 tournament. In a complete reversal, Alita won with 68.1% of a whopping 8,756 votes.
Shortly after the poll was finished, The Movie Cellar offered us an opportunity to donate to their fundraiser to find a cure for type-1 diabetes and have the “#AlitaArmy” attached to their show. We raised over $1000 in short time and The Movie Cellar has added our logo to their series banner. They will also have a show on Alita: Battle Angel. We’ve selected someone to be our representative on the show to discuss the movie and the manga that it’s adapted from.
This fundraiser is personal for one of The Movie Cellar’s members named Dan who has a daughter afflicted with type-1 diabetes. From their fundraiser page:
“Lily lives with T1D, which means that her pancreas does not produce the insulin she needs to convert her food into energy for her body. A T1D diagnosis means that you will spend the rest of your life constantly checking your blood sugar levels, monitoring your food intake, and having to take insulin, and there are no days off. It’s a lot of work for anyone, especially a little girl trying to just live her life and have fun with her friends.”
We want to help Dan and his daughter Lily in any way we can so we will share their fundraiser and ask you to please consider donating if you can. Funds go to the JDRF (Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation). Click the image below to go to the fundraiser:
“Even though the actress plays unique roles, her face is becoming more familiar as she continues to make a name for herself in the industry, and amazingly, she’s still a pretty good human being despite having a tough road to success.”
Out of the blue, Twitter Movies calls out the way Alita: Battle Angel is promoted by the #AlitaArmy everywhere, every day. This is a massive shout out but it could also be a bit of shade. Either way, the Alita Army took the opportunity to show positive love and support for Alita.
“Recently, there had been rumblings from BlackSeriesRebels podcast that Logan director James Mangold and Alita: Battle Angel director would be tackling episodes on Season 2 of Jon Favreau’s Disney+ series The Mandalorian. However, when James Mangold took to Twitter to debunk the rumor it put into question if Robert was working on the Star Wars series.
HN Entertainment can now confirm from our sourcing that Robert Rodriguez indeed worked on The Mandalorian and that part of the rumor is accurate.”
“While the world at large has scaled back in terms of outdoor activities, that doesn’t mean the efforts to support both Alita: Battle Angel and its potential sequel need to stop. As any good army will tell you, you need to adapt and overcome circumstances such as the ones the COVID-19 pandemic have provided. In the interests of supporting the ever vigilant Alita Army, I’m about to point out some ways to support our favorite cyborg, right from your own home.”
“Keeping hope alive through charitable gestures and online campaigns, the Alita Army would love to see ALITA: BATTLE ANGEL 2 become a reality, and with that potential sequel there’s a couple of things we’d love to see happen.”
