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.
