Movie Prequels are the perfect solution for expanding the story of a movie that ended perfectly. After all, many people wouldn't ever change an ending to a great movie, even if we want to see more of it. Prequels allows us to do that, by delving deeper into that story before it happens.

But are all prequels a good idea? Sometimes, when executed poorly, prequels are just another way for money-grubbing production companies to eeke another dollar from a beloved franchise, either killing it outright, or downgrading the value of the series.

What prequels were the most successful? What about the least successful? Here's a great infographic about some of the most popular prequels in Hollywood history.
