Standalone film

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

A standalone film is a film that does not have any relation with other films.[1] In the late 1990s, it was typical to create standalone films with no plans for sequels. The term "standalone film" appeared when sequels, spin-offs, and franchises became normal from the mid-2000s onwards.[2]

Types of standalone films

Standalone film

In a canonical meaning, a standalone film is a film that is not part of any franchise. The Sixth Sense, The Shawshank Redemption, and Inception are examples of standalone films.[3][4]

Standalone sequel

When a film is set in either the same universe (or one very similar to that of) as its predecessors, yet has very little if any narrative connection to its predecessors and can be appreciated on its own without a thorough understanding of the backstory, then the work can be referred to as a standalone sequel.[5] Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, The Angry Birds Movie 2, Mr. Bean's Holiday, Jingle All the Way 2, Deep Blue Sea 2, Cars 3, All Dogs Go to Heaven 2, The Tigger Movie, Snoopy Come Home, Toy Story 4, Shrek Forever After, The Rescuers Down Under, Son of the Mask, Return to Never Land, Mean Girls 2, 102 Dalmatians, Scooby-Doo 2: Monsters Unleashed, Transformers: Age of Extinction, Trolls World Tour, Kronk's New Groove, The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water, Hey Arnold!: The Jungle Movie, The Secret Life of Pets 2, Phineas and Ferb the Movie: Candace Against the Universe, Frozen II, The Karate Kid, Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween, Open Season: Scared Silly, Space Jam: A New Legacy are examples of stand-alone movie sequels.

Standalone spin-off

A standalone spin-off is a film that expands some fictional universe. The Star Wars Anthology series is an example of standalone spin-offs.[4][6] Standalone spin-offs may also be centered on a minor character from an existing fictional universe.[citation needed]
