Who actually owns the IP rights to Avatar & Alita Battle Angel?

Who is in the Rights?

Movie rights in Hollywood are not always clear-cut from the perspective of an outside observer. When considering the Marvel Cinematic Universe or Star Wars, it is immediately obvious who owns those IPs. Disney bought Star Wars from George Lucas in 2012, which in turn led to the decanonization of the Extended Universe as the franchise was reworked by its new owners. So it is quite obvious who owns that IP. The same is true with the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Disney can go in whatever direction they want with the respective stories & characters of said IPs. Yet when it comes to properties in which James Cameron is involved, especially Avatar and Alita Battle Angel, most media outlets report, and readers believe with the same conviction that these IPs are owned by Disney. In reality, this assertion is very likely to be far from the truth.

Watch Alita: Battle Angel On Disney+ (Canada) In April

According to What’s On Disney Plus, Alita: Battle Angel will be on Disney+ in Canada soon:

“Disney has announced that the 20th Century Studios film “Alita: Battle Angel” will be coming to Disney+ in Canada on Friday 2nd April.”

Months ago there was an alleged leaked video that showed Alita: Battle Angel coming to Disney+ in the U.S. on April 23. Some dispute the authenticity of the leaked video. If it had some truth to it, we could be seeing Alita on Disney+ soon. That would be a huge deal given that the film performed poorly financially in the U.S. where it needed to succeed the most.
