I’m not really sure how many hardcore Alita stans out there plan to give up. I’m positive that I’m not one of them. Not even after that #AlitaSequel is announced. We never give up. pic.twitter.com/eJAvJul74U

Actress Rosa Salazar spoke about a sequel back in July noting that she’s ready to play Alita for a long time, “I would play Alita ‘til my last breath.” She added, “I would, and thanks to the performance capture technology, I probably could.”
While Salazar would be up for playing Alita, she had not heard word about whether or not there would be a sequel, but encouraged fans to purchase the Blu-rays in order to move the needle.
“Not yet, but buy those Blu-rays,” she stated. “Not yet, but buy those Blu-rays.”
She also noted that back in July was not the right time for her to call up Disney’s Alan Horn and ask about an Alita sequel.
“Yeah, I mean, they had a crazy merger. People are gaining jobs, people are losing jobs. The whole Disney/Fox acquisition is so involved, this isn’t the right time for me to call Alan Horn and be like, ‘Hey bro, I know you got a lotta stuff going on, but like what about Alita 2?’”
Alita: Battle Angel earned $85.7 million at the domestic box and $404.8 million worldwide. The production budget for the film is estimated at $170 million.
The-Numbers reports the film has sold over $19.8 million in domestic DVD and Blu-ray sales.
