Best prequels.

Sort by: Showing 26 items
Decade: Rating: List Type:
Both a prequel and sequel to The Godfather (1972).

It's a prequel because there are flashback segments to the previous Don Vito's childhood and how he became Don but sequel as well because it follows straight after the first one after Don Vito died.

Prequel to all James Bond films.

I mean this is known to many people as a reboot in the series because of a new Bond actor but I would still call it a prequel because it is set back when Bond began his career as 007 which became Bond's first mission and just as he is earning his licence to kill.

Batman Begins (2005)
Prequel to Batman (1989), Batman Returns (1992), Batman Forever (1995) and Batman & Robin (1997).


My reasons for this being a prequel are pretty much the same as Casino Royale.

Prometheus (2012)
Prequel to Alien (1979).

It is not officially a direct prequel but Prometheus is set in an earlier time setting and is linked to Alien due to the background concepts, storyline and scenes. So, like Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes and Casino Royale, I would call Prometheus a prequel.

Prequel to Harry Potter And The Philosopher's Stone (2001), Harry Potter And The Chamber Of Secrets (2002), Harry Potter And The Prisoner Of Azkaban (2004), Harry Potter And The Goblet Of Fire (2005) and Harry Potter And The Order Of The Phoenix (2007).


Well, I would say this is something like The Godfather: Part II: it carries on straight after it's predecessor but there are moments of flashbacks of a very important character from childhood to adulthood.
