In a recent interview with Forbes, James Cameron surprised fans by confirming that he will be dedicating time in the near future to work on sequels for the 2019 blockbuster film, “Alita: Battle Angel.” Despite his current involvement in the Avatar sequels, Cameron expressed his commitment to the Alita franchise. The unexpected discussion about the future of the series took place during an interview where Cameron was originally speaking about the sale of one of his properties. Here’s what he had to say about the Alita sequels:

“While working on Avatar in Wellington and Los Angeles, I will also be focusing on the new ‘Alita: Battle Angel’ films in Austin. This change in location made more logistical sense for us.”

Directed by Robert Rodriguez, “Alita: Battle Angel” centered around the character of Alita, portrayed by Rosa Salazar. As a revived cyborg grappling with amnesia, Alita had to rediscover her place in the world. However, this proved challenging in a post-apocalyptic reality where survival instincts prevailed. Alita possessed a unique quality—a human brain—in a society largely dominated by robotic components. Determined to uncover the conspiracy surrounding the constant theft of robotic parts, Alita joined forces as a Hunter-Warrior.

While Alita herself proved to be a formidable hero, the film faced its own obstacles. Despite impressive box office numbers for a February release, the movie’s high budget prevented it from becoming a fully profitable venture for Fox. Additionally, the acquisition of the studio by Disney caused delays in the potential development of sequels during the merger. Nonetheless, James Cameron’s recent announcement indicates that he is now prepared to return to Alita’s world, raising hopes for the long-awaited continuation of the story.

James Cameron Returns to Pandora

Before fully immersing himself in the Alita universe, James Cameron remains occupied with the narrative he is crafting in Pandora. “Avatar: The Way of Water,” released in December, captivated audiences as they eagerly followed Jake Sully’s (Sam Worthington) mission to protect his family from the menacing new iteration of Colonel Miles Quaritch (Stephen Lang). Cameron confirmed the production of three more Avatar films, which have already been scheduled for release by Disney. With the final installment of Avatar set for 2031, the timeline for the Alita movies remains uncertain.
