  1. I think the problem with sequels relies in the screenwriter. If the storyline is loyal to its pre-sequel (respecting the brand) you will have a better change in maintaining the audience loyal to the franchise. However, even the best screenwriters can have a difficult time… as an example, Director John Avildsen (Rocky and The Karate Kid) once said that “there is no good movie without a good story”. He made KK in 1984 a worldwide success but for the sequel, Producers did not agree on Elisabeth Shue’s role (thus ending Ali’s storyline abruptly) so the screenwriter could not had changed that. I wrote a blog (on WordPress) about successful franchises for a Marketing course at University. Based on the book “The Films of John Avildsen”. John at first did not want to make a sequel for KK after the huge success worldwide, because it is not easy to maintain the storyline as the audience has a greater expectation for the movie.
