Hollywood movie makers seemingly love making fans wait for their movie sequels. But sometimes, the gap between a film and its sequel can get too long. This either works out or these sequels just lose the touch with aging. Check out these Hollywood movie sequels with the longest gap.
When Toy Story 3 was announced the makers were questioned for their decision. Not only because the sequels had almost ten years of the gap but people thought another would just ruin the impact of the previous films. However, Pixar tended into that disillusionment and crafted a masterpiece about growing up and leaving the past behind.
This sequel came twenty years after the original, with the original having released on December 16, 1994. The first sequel earned a balanced response at the box office. However, the sequel, Dumb and Dumber To couldn't impress the critics and grossed a deep $169 million - $78 million, which was less than the original.
The makers of The Godfather Part II resisted making a third Godfather movie for years. They tried to play the new movie instead of a sequel but Paramount insisted on The Godfather Part III instead. However, Part III ended up earning an Oscar nomination for Best Picture but reviews were mixed back then, and the film has since then been deemed a major disappointment by both fans and critics.
The gap between Star Wars VI and Star Wars VII is so huge that there have been three prequel movies between these two releases. The prequels were fine but most of the fans wanted to know what happened to their favourite characters after the events of Jedi. Star Wars is one of the longest franchises till date.
According to the reports, Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull was supposed to happen soon after the success of Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade. However, the sequel ended up happening only 19 years later.
