Fans are asking Disney to get the green light for a sequel. They even did a petition in change.org and were flying the #AlitaSequel banner over the 2020 Oscars show. As you probably already know, James Camron is involved with the movie, and he was the one to state that there will be an Alita: Battle Angel sequel. Here is all we know so far.
