My Big Fat Greek Wedding finally has a sequel, and my personal opinion is that it was well worth the long wait. However, there are a few movies on my hit list which I can feel have not completely run their course yet, if there were a sequel to any of these I’d be first in the box office queue:
This part animated, part live action Disney movie takes a different slant on fairy tales as we see Princess Giselle (Amy Adams) from a fairy-tale landing in modern Manhattan and dealing with all that such a huge change entails. The story was left with Giselle becoming ‘step-mum’ to Morgan, daughter of Divorce Lawyer, Robert as she settled on him as her ‘Prince Charming’. A sequel involving an update on their life together would be a dream come true (for me!) and a reappearance from Susan Sarandon as the Evil Queen would also be necessary, of course.
Although actress and star of the original movie, Bette Midler has been quoted as giving “an unequivocal no” to this age old request, the fact remains that this is a sequel begging to be made. I would like to see Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker and Kathy Najimy return, but a rival trio of younger witches would be an interesting turn of events!
This film was released in 1996 and starred Helen Hunt and Bill Paxton as Dr Jo and Bill Harding. This is a film I think could easily take on a second lease of life twenty years on. Maybe with Jo and Bill’s children chasing tornadoes while their parents provide support!
What Women Want
Unintentionally, I’ve selected another movie starring Helen Hunt. I thought that this rom-com was a superb movie, Mel Gibson and Helen Hunt had fantastic chemistry ad in my opinion, were the proverbial dream team. I’d like to see how Nick Marshall (Gibson) and Darcy Maguire (Hunt) progressed in their relationship, did they get married? Are they divorced? Much to be explored, here.
Wreck It Ralph
This Disney film is the only one on my list that I believe is booked in for a sequel. John C. Reilly who voices the character of Ralph let it slip on Twitter, last year. This is great news as the beauty of setting a film around computer/arcade games is that there are endless possibilities for the introduction of different characters. Plus, I want to know how Felix and Cahoun’s marriage is working out!
