Created in partnership with US artist Cloe Hakakian and recreated by Sophie Meseg at Graffiti Life, the ALITA: BATTLE ANGEL-inspired, AR-enabled Manga Wall marked the Home Entertainment release and the beloved manga that inspired it.
The Manga Wall, which appeared at London Film & Comic Con 2019 from Friday 26 – Sunday 28 July at London Olympia, featured a photo opportunity to help fans dive into Alita’s world with the hashtags #AlitaBattleAngel and #IDoNotStandBy, as well as a custom Facebook AR lens that quite literally brought ALITA: BATTLE ANGEL special feature material to life through the screen of smartphones.
Created in celebration of the release of ALITA: BATTLE ANGEL on Digital, 4K Ultra HD + Blu-ray™ 3D, Blu-ray™, and DVD, the Manga Wall is not to be missed at this year’s London Film & Comic Con.
When Alita awakens with no memory of who she is in a future world she does not recognize, she is taken in by Ido, a compassionate doctor who realizes that somewhere in this abandoned cyborg shell is the heart and soul of a young woman with an extraordinary past. As Alita learns to navigate her new life and the treacherous streets of Iron City, Ido tries to shield her from her mysterious history while her street-smart new friend Hugo offers instead to help trigger her memories. But it is only when the deadly and corrupt forces that run the city come after Alita that she discovers a clue to her past – she has unique fighting abilities that those in power will stop at nothing to control. If she can stay out of their grasp, she could be the key to saving her friends, her family and the world she’s grown to love.
