‘She’s got this outstanding strength, power and attitude in her performances that Alita embodies in the film. Jim, Robert and I are thrilled to have her on board. Moreover, we are confident that she makes ‘SWAN SONG’ a perfect inspiring and powerful anthem for our film.’
DUA LIPA ABOUT ‘ALITA: BATTLE ANGEL’
Dua Lipa adds: ‘I’m fascinated by both Alita and the great team of filmmakers who came together to make this film possible. I recognize a lot of myself in Alita. In her incredible temper and our similar haircut. ALITA is about self-actualization and standing up for who you are – these are both things that resonate with me.’
