Top Ten Animated Movie Franchises Ruined by Their SequelsRustyNail
The Top Ten
The cave painting scene in the original movie is one of the most underrated scenes in animated movie history. It's so beautiful and tragic, and tells you everything you need to know about Manny purely through visuals. The sequels are so bad that people forget that the original Ice Age is actually a legitimately great movie with compelling characters who go through arcs and actual drama. - phillysports
The first one is one of my favorite childhood memories, the franchise has gone so low and lost the magic it once had. Dinosaurs then pirates then outer space ( really outer space? You know if a franchise goes on long enough, it will end up in space) - RustyNail
I don't like the latest sequel; it was nothing but a cash grab. It sucks that Blue Sky Animation doesn't have anything else as profitable. They need to focus on expanding their franchise and putting out quality films rather than running Ice Age into the ground. - Gg2000
My rating for all of them..
Ice Age: 9.5/10
The Meltdown: 9/10
Dawn Of Dinosaurs 8.5/10
Continental Drift: 4.5/10
Collision Course: 2/10 - BlazingParasol
To many sequels for so many years killed it - RustyNail
14 Sequels are way too much - Gilad_Hyperstar
They didn't even need to make one sequel. 14? Really?
The typical example. I admittedly like some of the sequels (II, IV, V, VII, X and XIV), but alas, there's more than enough. There's even a T.V. show based on the film series, and if you ask me, they should have stick to that instead of making more films.
XIII is a special case. Even die-hard TLBT fans who like all of the films and the T.V. show will state that movie XIII is THE exception. It's that terrible. - CrimsonShark
Shrek 2 was okay but yeah the rest sucked... - CaptainMowzker
Shrek 2 is the best Shrek movie. - phillysports
I honestly think Shrek is overrated, but the first one is classic that changed movies, 2nd is great, 3rd is dependent upon the person, 4th...god. Plus puss in boots didn't help. - RustyNail
2nd: Even better.
4th: Awful. - 3DG20
The Third one is actually the best of them, by far - Gilad_Hyperstar
Loved the first two but the third one was one of the first terrible movies I remember watching.
Actually the third film was better than the previous two - Mcgillacuddy
I HATE the third one. It ruined everything for me. - CopenhagenV 4 Comments
Just direct to DVD sequels here, and they sucked. - PackFan2005
This movie is an. Amazing underrated movie that is downright awesome... Then 2 stupid seq - RustyNail
The best thing about this was it's soundtrack, and that's not saying much.
I actually liked the 2nd one better than the first in my opinion... - B1ueNew
Nah the 3rd one was ok - Not_A_Weeaboo
The first one wasn’t even that great in my opinion. There was no need for a second, let alone a third one. - 3DG20
The only movie here where the sequels were actually bad. Ice Age 2 and 3 are great and I loved Madagascar 2 but lets face it. Cars 2 and 3 are BAD - Spyrofan35
How? The first and the third one were well made, and everyone probably has forgotten the plot of the trashy second movie. - MrCoolC
NO! TAKE THIS OUT OF THIS LIST NOW! THIS WAS NOT RUINED BY THEIR FRANCHISES! WRECK-IT RALPH 1 AND 2 RUINED DISNEY AND OTHER MOVIES ESPECIALLY THIS AMAZING FRANCHISE! THIS FRANCHISE DOESN'T RUIN ANYTHING THIS FRANCHISE IS NEEDED IN MANY WAYS! WRECK-IT RALPH 1 AND 2 ARE NOT NEEDED EVER!
The second movie was awful. I loved the third. - CyriV 1 Comment
The stupid minions movie and their over media coverage. Cash grab sequels that nobody asked for. Its just despicable...sorry I had to do that. - RustyNail
The first Despicable Me was mediocre, the second one was garbage, Minions was pointless, and the third one just might be the worst one of them all. - CaptainMowzker
Okay, the first one had some effort put into it, but beyond that, the others are pretty bad, especially that wretched Minions movie. - PackFan2005
Should’ve stopped at the second movie. - MrCoolCV 4 Comments
I loved the first movie when I was younger and I was excited when I heard they were making a sequel, but when the sequel did come out, I was bored by the 10 minute mark, even at 11. - 3DG20
I think the first Rio movie is underrated, but I disliked the sequel. - PackFan2005
Why a sequel, such an amazing movie ruined by a crappie cash grab - RustyNail
The second is very cringe-worthy to me. - CopenhagenV 1 Comment
It got seven sequels! SEVEN! And five of them are unnecessary CGI ones! - PerfectImpulseX
I liked the second one, but it really didn't needed a third one.
That movie didn't deserve one sequel, let alone a 3rd and a T.V. show - RustyNail
Just like The Land Before Time a Don Bluth masterpiece yet it's ruined by its sugar-coated sequel. At least there isn't 14 of them! - Gabriola
Wait...THIS HAD A SEQUEL?
