Top Ten Best Movie Prequels

These are some of the most beloved prequels ever made. Also keep in mind sense I haven't seen a bunch of prequels, I'm ranking these on how much popularity they have (for the most part).

The Top Ten

1 Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith

Am I the only one who likes this more then the original movies, including Empire Strikes Back?

Best Star wars prequel. Almost as good as the originals.

I don't care what people say. This is the best movie ever!

I prefered it to the original trilogy due to the action.

2 X-Men: First Class

I loved but Wolverine Origins is better

Just awesome

3 Monsters University

Monster Inc is more funny but this is Iconic

A monsterously fun film

4 The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey

I like the Desolation of Smaug the best. The first one, nothing really happened other than Bilbo finding the ring. The last one was okay, but the second one is the best. The movies could have been a lot better, though.

This movie bored me but is not bad

Buddy, it was excellent. But Desolation of Smaug is the best in the Hobbit series. Battle of the Five Armies: an unnecessarily long disappointment. - PositronWildhawk

All three were great

5 Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom

All Indiana Jones movies are great, except for the movie with Shia Labeouf

6 Rise of the Planet of the Apes

It rises above the rest of the movie with apes in the title. Especially when the Tim Burton remake.

This ISN'T a prequel. It's a remake - robertoiglesias271

7 The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly V 1 Comment
8 Prometheus

Sorry this movie was bad but the final was quite awesome

I Actually Really Like This Movie, Is It A Masterpiece, No, Is It Good, Yes - JPK

This was such a dumb movie. Too bad because it's so visually stunning. - SourNote2014

Amazing movie. Just a little too complex and secretive for some viwers.

9 Rogue One: A Star Wars Story
10 The Godfather Part II

The Contenders

11 Red Dragon
12 Alien: Covenant
13 Scooby Doo: The Mystery Begins

This movie was stupid

The only live-action scooby doo movie I can watch as many times and not get bored of it.

Blows the first two movies out of the water and was pretty solid itself. - Lasvegasxavier

14 Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clones

Phanton Manace is better

15 Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them
16 Alien
17 Puss in Boots
18 Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace
19 The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug
20 The Hobbit: The Battle of Five Armies
