Many great movie franchises have simply maximized our experience about the story. The sequels of movies like the Harry Potter series, The Matrix, Now You See Me, Hunger Games series, The Incredibles, The Divergent series, and the list can go on about the movies whose sequel added more fun to the franchise. Clearly, the incredibly made movie sequels bring the story along in a more succeeding way. But there are also certain movies whose sequels should have been made, and people are waiting for the news of their sequels for most of them. Let’s take a look at the list we made on 19 movie sequels that should have been made.
1. Galaxy Quest –1999
The film, directed by Dean Parisot, is a parody and homage to the sci-fi films and series, both at the same time. The story revolves around the cast of the fictional TV series Galaxy Quest. The film received awards for its script and dramatic presentation. It also received nominations for many awards in several categories, including Best Actor for Tim Allen in Saturn Awards. People loved the movie, and people wanted to see more of Alan Rickman in the movie’s sequel, but it never got made.
2. Dredd- 2012
It is a sci-fi action film based on a comic strip, Judge Dredd, which John Wagner and Carlos Ezquerra created. The movie stars Karl Urban as Judge Dredd, who tries to instate law enforcement in a dystopian city called Mega-city. The movie has an exciting plot but did average on the box office. Even though it was criticized for a few points and earned $41.5M, which did not help them gain a considerable profit, the audience enjoyed the movie. It was expected to have sequels of the movie, but after its average “success,” the writer’s trilogy plan got canceled.
3. Big Hero 6 – 2014
The movie had a sad starting and a sad ending but with a cliffhanger. The movie’s adorable healthcare robot quickly made it into our hearts, and the twists in the plot were equally captivating. Fans are really hoping to see Hiro’s version of Baymax and dying to find out what happens next. We hope they bring out its sequel.
4. Constantine- 2005
The movie was a massive success at the box office and was probably one of the best comic book adaptations. It is based on the DC Comics/Vertigo comic series Hellblazer. Its international success was quite moderate, putting Warner bros in a doubtful state about its sequel’s success. But still, fans are hoping to see its sequel even now. And not just the fans, Keanu Reeves also mentioned in an interview that he would like to work on the character again in its sequel.
5. Hocus Pocus- 1993
The movie from 1993 is still one of the best Halloween movies even today. Those who’ve watched the movie would agree with me. Even though the movie has done moderate business at the box office, the DVDs and Blu-ray movies got them a huge sale. The movie never hinted at a sequel, but the audience still has high hopes, along with the Sanderson sisters. One of those movie sequels that should have been made.
6. Iron Man
We all saw what Iron Man’s fate had for him in Avengers: Endgame. But when Iron Man 3 was released in 2013, fans could not help but speculate what Iron Man 4 would hold for the franchise. Not just the fans, Robert Downey Jr. also expressed during Civil War’s press that he would love to do another Iron Man movie. Now, even though we know about the actor’s contract and Iron Man’s fate, we cannot help but hope to see them again in a movie somehow.
7. The Sorcerer’s Apprentice – 2010
It is a fantasy/adventure movie released in 2010. The science of magic in the movie seemed very fascinating. The story was about saving the world from Master sorcerer’s archenemy, played by Nicholas Cage, for which he hires a student as his apprentice. It was enjoyable and entertaining to watch, and its sequel would have been a fun one too.
8. Treasure Planet – 2002
The movie was undeniably one of the best-animated movies Disney and Pixar ever made. The film is technically excellent and a masterpiece indeed, created by Ron Clements and John Musker, who have directed more such masterpieces. The audience was practically shattered when they found out that the sequel to the movie got canceled only because of messing up the period of the film release. It is one of those films whose sequels would have doubled the fun, but, unfortunately, we never got to experience it. We still hope Disney considers these requests.
9. The Simpsons Movie– 2007
Who isn’t aware of the legendary TV sitcom that changed the future of animated series, especially sitcoms? We were lucky enough to witness the making of The Simpsons Movie, and wasn’t it fun? At the end of the movie, when Maggie shouts “sequel,” we were hoping to see the sequel sometime soon. But 14 years passed, and it is still one of those movies whose sequels and we are still only hoping and waiting for.
10. Beetlejuice – 1988
The movie is directed by one of the finest directors who have made more such unique projects. This movie gave the director a new turn and a new image. It is a gothic horror about a ghost who unknowingly helps two more spirits. Beetlejuice was a massive hit making over $75M. And fans kept hoping for its sequel. There were rumors about it, too, but the director didn’t confirm it.
11. Pulp Fiction- 1994
Pulp Fiction rocked the cinematic world for a long time after its release. It even gave us back John Travolta in his true form. Millions loved Tarantino’s black comedy crime film and is a masterpiece. It is regarded as a significant critical and commercial success. The movie earned many awards and was nominated for more, including a nomination for Best Picture in 67th Academy Awards and an award for Best Screenplay. I can’t even imagine how wonderful the sequel would have turned out to be, and the fans are waiting ever since for its sequel.
These are the movie sequels we still hope and wish to see someday. Which are the movies you think should have sequels? Let us know in the comments.
