A Broken Society Needs A Fixer
Welcome to the 26th century: after a world war devastated the planet, the society collapsed.

The robotic body is the only thing keeping her alive; unfortunately, she has no memory of who she is and/or what her purpose is. After a genius surgeon finds her, Alita’s life changes completely. He tasks his new protege with an impossible mission: to restore the balance between life and death…The Alita Battle Angel official release date in 2018 is a year away from now, but the fans are already going crazy!
