21 shocking straight-to-video sequels: How many have you seen?

14 August 2015 5:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

What's the only thing worse than a sequel? The only prospect worse than paying £10 at your local cinema to have your favourite movie ruined, forever. The answer has three words. Straight-to-video.

In the '90s, home release sequels became fairly common. You'd greet them with surprise at your local Blockbusters and then want to pull your eyeballs out when you took them home and watched them. They're probably called straight-to-dvd or straight-to-Blu-ray now, but they still exist.

With the announcement that Dolph Lundgren will be starring in Kindergarten Cop 2 (because of course), here are 21 absolute stinking sequels - the vast majority of which weren't even considered good enough for the cinema. How many of them have you watched?

1. American Pie Presents: Band Camp

2. American Pie Presents: Beta House

Maybe it's the Eugene Levy factor - just why did he keep starring in all the sequels?! - but we have weird »

Disney has announced a new sequel to The Lion King which will see the return of James Earl Jones as Mufasa.

The Lion Guard: Return of the Roar will premiere on the Disney Channel in November and act as a precursor to the previously-announced Lion Guard series.

The Lion King 3D - movie review

"The movie follows Kion, the second-born cub of Simba and Nala, as he assumes the role of leader of the Lion Guard, a team of animals tasked with preserving the Pride Lands," said Disney.

Ernie Sabella will also return as Pumbaa, while Rob Lowe replaces Matthew Broderick as Simba and Gabrielle Union replaces Moira Kelly as Nala.

Max Charles plays Kion and Joshua Rush plays Kion's best friend - a honey badger called Bunga.

How many have you seen? 12 of Disney's worst straight-to-video sequels

14 March 2015 3:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Sequels and spinoffs are all the rage on the big screen these days, but the news that Disney is moving forward with a Frozen 2 still comes as something of a surprise considering the studio has been reticent to pump out theatrically-released follow-ups to its biggest hits - only The Three Caballeros, The Rescuers Down Under, Fantasia 2000 and Winnie the Pooh are part of the Disney Animated Canon.

However, throughout the '90s and '00s Disney had a lucrative side-business in direct-to-video sequels that were turned around quickly and cheaply and made the studio a fast buck. Many execs felt that these cheapened the originals and John Lasseter put the brakes on them, although the recent Tinker Bell films (branching out from Peter Pan) have their roots in this release model.

Digital Spy revisits 13 of Disney's most unnecessary straight-to-video sequels below:
