WHEN WILL THE 2ND PART RELEASE?
Alita: Battle Angel is all set for a second part. Although the makers haven’t announced the official date, fans will be delighted to know that there will be a part 2. However, the ongoing coronavirus pandemic has delayed the production and filming. Once the production resumes, we will be able to know the tentative date of release.
WHAT WILL THE PLOT OF PART 2 BE?
The first part of the sci-fi film series is very similar to the first volume of the manga comics, which ends with Hugo’s death. So we speculate that the second part will also be the same as the second volume of the comic series. However, we expect some variations in this sequel.
WHO WILL RETURN IN THE SEQUEL?
We will see the major cast of the first part in the sequel. Rosa Salazar will reappear as Alita, Jennifer Connelly as Dr. Chiren, Ed Skrein as Zapan, Keean Johnson as Hugo, Lana Condor as Koyomi, Christoph Waltz as Dr. Dyson Ido, Mahershala Ali as Vector, and Jackie Earle Haley as Grewishka. We are yet to get an official confirmation.
