Have the Harry Potter films actually ruined childrens movies?

Seems that every kids movie that is released is immediately compared and falls short.

The golden compass/stardust/percy jackson and the lightning thief. And remember a series of unfortunate events? was gonna be loads of sequels-sank without a trace!

So have the potter films done more harm than good? Personally dont like the harry potter films at all-they are sleep inducing imho,but my kids love em so what do I know?

But I do believe that producers are very unlikely to take a risk on any other franchise now because its just too much of a gamble.

I like the Potter films - Loved the books (used to hate them, but when I read them I couldn't stop).

The problem is that the likes of Golden Compass and A Series of Unfortunate Events weren't very good films - Simple really. However the likes of Narnia was a good film. I haven't seen the Lightning Thief but it looked like it had real potential.

*Edit* To answer, I don't think the potter films have done any harm - They've just set a high benchmark. (If only there were more accurate to the books... then they'd be perfect, grr).

Percy jackson film is really good - as well as it being directed by a previous Potter film director so there's gonna be comparisons made there... looking good for a new franchise seeing as though potter is almost as good as done with !

First 3 Harry Potter films were really bad by any standard. The likes of the movies mentioned in the op are far superior. The popularity of the HP brand saw it through to actually make fairly decent movies in the last 3.

At least they are still churning out great animated movies for kids, this years Oscar list is a prime example of the quality out there recently.

Its becuase they all fall into the same genre so they are all compared.

Same happend with StarWars back in 1977 any subsequent space film was compared to StarWars.
