Is Alita Dangerous?
Amid the evil and dangerous forces that control the city, Alita slowly begins to rediscover the pieces of her past. His unique fighting ability makes Alita one of the targets of a group of other cyborgs.

James Cameron is known not to want half measures in making films. The success of AVATAR is an example. Quoted from ABC, the film script itself has been written by Cameron since 2004, a project that is quite serious if the preparation takes up to 15 years.
For some people, ALITA: BATTLE ANGEL does look very familiar. The film was adapted by a manga titled Gunmm by Yukito Kishiro. James himself had received permission and a direct license from Yukito in 1999 to make his film.
