Help Us Place An Ad In The LA Times

One of the first ad concepts by Johnny Sci-Fi that wasn’t chosen in the end.

@MuscogeeCreek (Gary Villeneuve) has set up a Go Fund Me to collect donations for an ad that we want to run in the LA Times. According to Gary and Charlie Schmidt, Darius Derakshan of the LA Times advertising department gave them a quote of $7.6k (without tax) for a 1/4 ad in the paper. They must have the ad and the payment submitted three working days before it’s due to run, which is September 9, 2022. That puts our deadline to raise the money at September 2 (the last working day before the actual deadline). The ad will run for one day.

The chosen design by @inkedrescuer. Thanks to @johnnyscifi for his entries as well.

We want the ad to run on September 9 because that is what we have deemed “Alita Appreciation Day”, or simply “Alita Day”. Alita’s number is 99 so what better day to celebrate our love for the character than on 9/9? You can find out more about our plans for Alita Day and see how you can participate HERE.

The reason that the LA Times was chosen for our ad was that we believe there’s a very good chance that it will be seen by Disney executives. The hope is that they will be impressed by Alita’s fanbase and greenlight an Alita: Battle Angel sequel. The ad will also point readers of the LA Times to the sequel petition and will result in more people signing it. Fans of Alita: Battle Angel will also learn about the campaign for a sequel and join us, adding to the pressure on Disney to greenlight an Alita sequel.

Any funds raised over our goal will be donated to a charity chosen by Creek Indian. Please contact him for details.

You may donate to the fundraiser HERE or by clicking the image below. Thank you for your support!

UPDATE: the ad has ran in the L.A. Times and has been responded to by Jon Landau. See more HERE.

James Cameron Is Considering “Passing The Baton” On Avatar 4 and Avatar 5. What It Could Mean for An Alita Sequel.

James Cameron may not be the one to direct Avatar 4 and 5. Could he be making himself available to develop the Alita: Battle Angel sequels?

James Cameron is thinking of letting another director finish his Avatar saga. Speaking to Empire in a recent interview, Cameron indicated that he has other projects besides the Avatar sequels that he’d like to develop and would consider trusting another director to direct them.

“The Avatar films themselves are kind of all-consuming. I’ve got some other things I’m developing as well that are exciting. I think eventually over time – I don’t know if that’s after three or after four – I’ll want to pass the baton to a director that I trust to take over, so I can go do some other stuff that I’m also interested in. Or maybe not. I don’t know.”

Anyone familiar with how Alita: Battle Angel finally made it out of production Hell knows that James Cameron handed the directing duties over to Robert Rodriguez so that he could focus on developing Avatar 2 and Avatar 3. If Cameron takes the same approach with Avatar 4 and Avatar 5, he would make himself available to develop sequels to Alita: Battle Angel. It’s no secret that Alita has a special place in Cameron’s heart so it’s reasonable to assume that the other “exciting” things that he alluded to developing include Alita sequels.

We will be continuing our efforts to let Disney Studios know that there are fans who want to see Alita’s story explored further. Stay tuned for campaign announcements to see how you can help.
