There have been other sequels in the past, such as 1994’s It Runs in the Family, which was a critical and financial flop at the box office and did not feature any of the original cast members. In the past, there have also been other sequels, such as 2005’s The Last Jedi. [Note:]
Another example of a sequel that did not live up to expectations is The Karate Kid, which was published in 1988. The events of the movie It Runs in the Family are not addressed in the sequel A Christmas Story 2, which was released on home video in 2012 but does not involve any of the original cast members. Additionally, the sequel does not feature any of the original characters from the first film.
This is because the events in the movie It Runs in the Family took place after the events of the sequel, which was released after those events. The film is a continuation of the previous film; however, none of the actors or actresses from the previous film makes an appearance in this film.
