An action-packed story of one young woman’s journey to discover the truth of who she is and her fight to change the world.
This film is based on the manga Gunnm, which is also known as Battle Angel Alita. It was first announced in 2003, but soon entered development hell as producer James Cameron began work on Avatar. Alita didn’t pick up steam again until 2016, when it was announced Robert Rodriguez would direct the film. Production began in October 2016 and ran through February 2017.
Alita has gone through multiple release date changes. It was initially scheduled for July 2018, and then December 2018 before Fox settled on the February 2019 window.
