Actress Rosa Salazar spoke about a sequel back in July noting that she’s ready to play Alita for a long time,Β “I would play Alita β€˜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, β€˜Hey bro, I know you got a lotta stuff going on, but like what aboutΒ Alita 2?’”
