Alita: Battle Angel 2 could arrive after Star Wars: the Book of Boba Fett


Director Robert Rodriguez spoke to the Hollywood Reporter about Boba Fett’s book and what might be on the cards next for the director of Spy Kids.

Speaking of Boba, Rodriguez says the character “invites a whole underworld world with him. Things that you didn’t expect, you see things that we couldn’t believe we had to do, ”he says. “Every episode has big surprises.”

Rodriguez also spoke of working with Temuera Morrison, 60 (who also played Boba’s father, Jango in the Star Wars prequels) and Ming-Na Wen, 58. they’re so young and full of energy, ”says Rodriguez. “Tem and I work together, it’s really Boba Fett.”

“And for Wen, I would design whole sequences just to end up on her and the look she would give Boba because she’s so badass. Tem knows it’s her moment and she knows it’s her moment, and when you get actors like that, they go there and it’s palpable.

Rodriguez also explains how George Lucas was a mentor to him. The two met when Rodriguez was mixing the sound at Skywalker Ranch. “George said, ‘You should check out these digital cameras that I use’ and showed me some green screen tips – and that’s what prompted me to take digital photos,” Rodriguez said. “He was a mentor at a point where I moved from movies like From Dusk Till Dawn and Desperado to do [the pioneering all-greenscreen-filmed] The city of sin.

As Rodriguez recounts, his stint in digital cinema ultimately led to him being hired to direct James Cameron’s Alita: Battle Angel in 2019, a live-action animated adaptation that has been widely praised for its CGI work. “Jon (Favreau) saw Alita and it made me become a Mandalorian,” Rodriguez says. “But the only reason I started making high tech movies a long time ago in Austin was because of George (Lucas).”

Looking to the future, Rodriguez recently wrapped up filming an action thriller, Hypnotic, starring Ben Affleck. It is also developing a modern reboot of Mask of Zorro directed by a woman directed by his sister, Rebecca Rodriguez. A highly speculated sequel to Alita is also still possible. “Jim (Cameron) and I talked about this recently, and we’re still very interested,” he says. “I said to him, ‘Let me deliver Boba, then let’s find some land. “
