Fans of “Alita: Battle Angel” have been demanding a sequel ever since the film came out earlier this year, even supporting one with a petition. But will the efforts all pay off and will they be getting one? One of the film’s producers seems to think it’s possible.

Speaking with CinemaBlend, Producer Jon Landau advised fans to continue showing their support while sending their passionate requests to Disney, which now owns the film.

“What I think the Alita Army should do is keep peppering our family now at Disney and [let them know] how important it is to have another Alita movie and hopefully we'll venture there one day,” he revealed.

The film came out in February, just before Disney’s acquisition of 20th Century Fox. Disney now owns much of Fox's library but is it unclear where “Alita” falls in terms of priorities since it has not been added in steaming services like Disney Plus. However, there’s a lot that can be looked at when it comes to the future.

After its release, the movie made $404 million in the box office worldwide, with much of its money coming from overseas, proving there is a market for “Alita: Battle Angel.” So how long will fans have to wait for a sequel if one is, in fact, in the works?

“You've got to assume that's going to take you 12 to 18 months to write a script. Assuming that the script is great, you then have a six to 10-month pre-production. You then have a six-month shoot. You then have a year of post-production,” Landau added.

As for others involved in the film's development, there is time to develop another installment. James Cameron is currently at work for the "Avatar" sequels, but that hasn't stopped the director from working on projects like this year's "Terminator: Dark Fate." Landau mentioned that the director has two "two additional stories” in mind for where the “Alita” movies can go as well. Even actress Rosa Salazar previously stated that she would be up to return for the sequels, urging the Alita Army, as these fans are being called, to keep supporting the home release of the film.

Directed by Robert Rodriguez, “Alita: Battle Angel” is now out on Blu-ray, 4K Ultra HD, and DVD.
