What is your favourite concept for a sequel?

Some common ones:

  • Bigger, badder!
  • Hero has to team up with former enemy!
  • Main character gets married!
  • Main character has a kid!
  • Basically the same but in an exotic location!

Disney used to be absolutely class for this, remember seeing the Aladdin sequel as a child and being very aware of just how bad the replacement Genie voice was (Google has just informed me this was Dan Castallaneta, aka Homer Simpson).
