Alita: Battle Angel is a sci-fi CGI film based on a Japanese Manga of the same title. The 2019 movie was written and produced by James Cameron and directed by Robert Rodriguez. Even though the movie was praised for its visual effects, a sequel was believed to be unlikely due to the reviews it got and its average performance at the box-office.

But with Landau's recent interview, fans are pretty hopeful about their plans for a sequel.

When asked when we could expect the sequel to release, Landau said: "I never put a timeframe on anything because you guys will hold it against me."
