16 Long Expected Spin-offs That Were Absolutely Worth The Wait

“A sequel is an admission that you’ve been reduced to imitating yourself.”-Don Marquis.

Returning to an establishment after numerous years – even many years – have passed can be something alarming. Spin-offs are hard enough now, not to mention circumstances in which years separate the main film’s unique magic from the following portions. It’s hard for studio executives, too, as they need to choose regardless of whether there’s still interest in a property that hasn’t been contacted in years. However, even with every one of the obstructions, at times, it works out. There are examples all through the natural history of movie producers returning to an establishment many years after the fact and the subsequent film being similarly significant as the first one. Sometimes, the original writer, director, or entertainers return and carry the actual chemistry with them. Sometimes a fan of the first movie gets an opportunity to inhale new life into the franchise with their own portion. Presently, it’s an ideal opportunity to choose which franchise returns to did it best.
