“As for the “Battle Angel” moniker, it comes from the 1990s manga series which was recently turned into a feature film as of 2019, Alita: Battle Angel. Verzosa found herself connecting with the character and her spirit for fighting. Therefore the nickname was adopted.”

Elon Musk Shares An Image Of A Rocket Adorned With Art Of Alita: Battle Angel

Update: A video has been added to the Alita Army YouTube channel explaining how this image ended up being shared by Elon Musk. It’ll be embedded at the bottom of this post.

Link to the tweet:

Tues, February 25, Elon Musk got the attention of of Twitter by posting a surprising image. It was a fan art of Alita photoshopped onto the side of a rocket. Naturally, we were excited about the tweet. The photoshop image was created by @JohnnySciFi using fan art from Francesco Canonico on Instagram (linked at the bottom of this post). @ChallengerST had been tweeting the image to Elon repeatedly since the summer of 2019. His persistence paid off.

As of this writing, Elon’s tweet has 98.7k likes. We’re hoping it reaches 99k for #99 (Alita)! published an article about Elon Musk’s tweet (while erroneously calling the cyborg Alita an android):

Jon Landau and Rosa Salazar reacted to the tweet. While Robert Rodriguez and Ed Skrein both retweeted it.

The original artist is found on Instagram at the link below:

CRUNCHYROLL: The Most Popular Anime in 2020…based on page views on the English version of Wikipedia

1. Alita: Battle Angel

“If you looked at the rankings in January, Alita would still make the top 10, but just barely. However, an online group known as the #AlitaArmy started a kickstarter late last year to get enough funds to fly a plane over the Oscars requesting a sequel to the 2019 film…

It’s incredible to see that a fan campaign was able to both bring such attention to this franchise with a single stunt that Wikipedia traffic for the page even exceeds that of the top airing simulcasts…”

The #AlitaSequel Banner & Arms For An Amputee Fundraiser Has Fully Funded And Closed

We’ve made our funding goal on the last day of the campaign. It’s been a great and memorable two months. Who knew we could fly a banner over the Oscars and give an amputee a prosthetic arm? The latter has yet to take place but with the funding met, it’s going to happen. The recipient of the arm will be chosen by Open Bionics and a special spokesperson will present the arm to them on behalf of the Alita Army. Thank you for all your support – financial and otherwise. You made this possible.

Link to the closed campaign page below:

What happens next: We will transfer the funds to the Open Bionics Foundation early next week. Why next week? Tilly Lockey, in association with Tainted Entertainment, will be presenting the Hero Arm to the recipient on behalf of the Alita Army. Tilly is currently on holiday and we believe it’s important to have her and her managers fully involved in the rest of the process.

Update: The Open Bionics Foundation has received the funds. They will begin the process of selecting the patient. This is a process that may take a few months. We will keep you updated on the progress as much as we can. Keep your eyes on the Alita News section for those reports. Thanks again for your support.

Queen Studios Gives An Update On The Alita Bust And Compliments The Alita Army

One of our most hotly anticipated busts dropped in 2020. Alita Battle Angel has an almost unrivalled fan base. The #Alitaarmy have been campaigning for a sequel for pretty much a year, culminating in a flyover at the Oscars. It was incredible to see this amazing support spill over into our art. With an entire army behind us, we knew we had to make something special.

After much anticipation, at the end of December we revealed the special edition heart, and then followed up in January with the full bust reveal. Again, the Army was out in full force. Tweeting, sharing and commenting on what’s turned out to be one of our best busts yet.
