As some of us have already pointed out on Twitter, BLADE RUNNER: BLACK LOTUS looks extremely derivative of Battle Angel Alita.
It’s good to see that fans of Alita aren’t the only people who have picked up on the similarities between Alita (sometimes called Ali in the live-action film) and Elle.
“It feels more like Battle Angel Alita to me. Even the main character Elle has heavy shades of Alita. It’s hard to tell whether she’s inspired by her, or if she’s a direct clone. I really hope it doesn’t end up being the latter. While I like Battle Angel Alita, I’m not a fan of cloning characters into another series aside from as cameos. It just feels a bit lazy to me.”

Lights, Camera, Pod asks: What is the most rewatchable movie or series of all time?
We know the answer to that, as far as films go. Get in there and remind them that the Alita Army is still pushing for an Alita sequel!
This will be great for exposing Alita to new viewers. And as Laeta Kalogridis, the co-writer of the original Alita: Battle Angel script, told us in an interview on Radio KAOS, the viewing metrics will influence Disney’s decision on whether to green-light an Alita sequel or not. We should keep an eye on Alita’s performance there and do what we can to encourage people in the UK to watch the film.
