With the recently concluded (November 2012) acquisition of Lucasfilm by the Walt Disney Co., Disney is planning to release Episode VII of the Star Wars saga in 2015. "Our long-term plan is to release a new 'Star Wars' feature film every two to three years," said Disney's Robert Iger. George Lucas will not be directing the new films; he is retiring. "...

TL;DR: No. The rights holders refuse to do a sequel, remake, or allow them to be made. Bob Gale (the co-writer and producer of the original films) has did an interview with Yahoo where he said “Let’s face it, we’ve seen a lot of sequels that are made years and years later and I don’t think I can name one that’s any good,” he says. “That lives up to the ...

Star Trek Forbidden Planet is indeed a real masterpiece, and one of the strongest impressions that I had when watching it for the first time was: "This movie looks like it's a Star Trek long and detailed episode". Some later research, revealed that Gene Roddenberry was indeed inspired also by Forbidden Planet when he created Star Trek; even ...

As Ty Hays mentions above, Return to the Forbidden Planet is technically a sequel to it. When I first saw it, it was done as Musical Theater at a local community college, and it looks like it was always meant to be something similar – it was billed as 'Shakespeare's forgotten rock and roll masterpiece.'

It's not a sequel, but there is an excellent novelization of the movie. It was written by Philip MacDonald (normally a writer of mystery fiction, as well as the grandson of the eminent fantasy writer George MacDonald), under a pseudonym W. J. Stuart. I found it to be quite good, fleshing out a number of plot points, including character motivations, as well ...

The first, Star Wars: Episode VII: The Force Awakens came out December 18, 2015. The next, Rogue One will come out December 16, 2016.

About the nearest thing to a derivative is The Invisible Boy (1958), in which Robbie the Robot features. However, it is set in the 20C, and I'm not too sure how he is supposed to have got back in time. In the end Robbie saves the boy from the schemes of a megalomaniac computer which has learned to think for itself and iirc seeks world domination.

The Invisible Boy (1957) is sort of a sequel and/or a prequel to The Forbidden Planet (1956). Due to time travel it is sort of a prequel, happening centuries earlier, and sort of a sequel, happening later in the time frame of Robby the Robot. Thus if there are ever a series of The Forbidden Planet movies, or Robby the Robot movies, or Commander Adams ...

@phantom42 pointed out that that there won't be a movie sequel, but it's worth mentioning that Back to the Future: The Game continues the story where the movie left off. Bob Gale (co-writer and producer of the film) was involved as a story consultant, and included several scenarios that he and Robert Zemeckis had originally conceived for the films. However,...

For those wishing to avoid spoilers, don't play the videos linked here. There's a few reasons for Kai just not immediately leaving. The end of this video from the very beginning of the movie sets the initial context. We see two things here. Next, we have this scene Later on, we have the ...

No, no subsequent Flash Gordon works are part of the 1980 film continuity. After the film's release, various Flash Gordon-themed cartoons, comics, games and other works were created. However, none of them were based off or related to the 1980 movie. The 2007 live-action series did apparently have a few elements similar to those of the film, but not the ...

I suspect that in the case of Enchanted Christmas, their desire to do a Christmas movie completely steamrolled any worry of continuity issues. But it really does open up the possible timeline of the film - it was temperate and pleasant when her time in the castle starts, and again when it ends. This implies that she was there right through the winter, ...

There is a new trailer out for the Spider-Man: Far from Home film starring Tom Holland, to be released in the summer of 2019. The trailer strongly implies that it builds upon the immediate aftermath of Avengers: Endgame, primarily the It contains an official warning that it contains major spoilers for that movie.

Most likely, but not necessarily "Homecoming 2" Tom Holland himself has confirmed that he is contracted to three solo films and three "other" films (likely joint films with Avengers, etc): They give you options and those could be exercised whenever. Like a cameo in Avengers," Holland says of Marvel. "I'm unclear as to which ...

Larry Gonick sent me a nice return email. Unfortunately, it sounds like there is not going to be another book. I did have a sequel in mind, but Muse and I parted ways, and it's not gonna happen. It was going to involve a spiritual fraud, maybe Mrs. Krishnamurti's brother, approaching the doughy villain in prison and convincing him that a religious ...

The author has weighed in on this in a Reddit AMA on July 28th, 2017: I do plan on expanding the Daemon series, but I thought some time would need to go by for reality to catch up to the first two books. When Daemon was first published I got a lot of email along the lines of "the book is cool, but none of this will be possible for decades." I don'...

Peter Marsden passed away in 2013. His third book (Witch Mountain) was incomplete and has not been published. Peter is sadly no longer with us, but as he was one of the founding members of Waterside Writers, his profile has been included to honour his memory. Peter loved reading books that took him to strange places, real or imagined, and when he started ...

Yes The author confirmed in an interview with FictionFare that she's "hard at work" on a sequel. What’s next for you? Are you working on anything right now that you can tell us about? I am hard at work on the sequel for THE LAST MAGICIAN. I also have a dark little Middle Grade that I’m working on revisions to, so we can go out on submission with ...

I think it was because Kai needed a great amount of power from other's chi to move from the Spirit realm to the Mortal realm. That is why he needed to take Po's chi so that he could return to the mortal realm and take the chi of the other pandas.Like he said at first, Master Oogway's strong chi was needed for Kai to move to the Mortal Realm. Later Kai needed ...
