30 Movie Franchises That Started But Never Finished
In the wake of Harry Potter, there were lots of fantasy franchises about children with special abilities that lived in fantastical worlds. Although the book series on which these series were based were often fairly popular, the filmed adaptations didn’t always perform as well.
In the case of Eragon, any plans to adapt the book’s sequels were put on indefinite hold after the adaptation of the first movie completely bombed with both critics and audiences. When your movie doesn’t seem to be appealing to anyone, there’s not much reason to sink more money into sequels. At the end of the day, Hollywood is a business.
