30 Movie Franchises That Started But Never Finished
The Spiderwick Chronicles
The Spiderwick Chronicles is a bit of a mystery. The series is based on popular children’s books about a fantastical world filled with magical creatures. The film was a modest success with critics, and it didn’t light the box office on fire, but it wasn’t a disappointment either.
For whatever reason, a sequel never materialized. It may have been because the first movie combined five novels into a single story. While there were still more novels to adapt, the process of choosing how to adapt it may have been too overwhelming to be worth the trouble it would take to do so. Still, unlike most of the movies on this list, the movie that made it to theaters wasn’t a disaster.
