Answer to Trivia

A film sequel doesn't always happen immediately after the original. It can take years for a follow-up to come to fruition. In the case of Bambi and its sequel, Bambi II, it took 63 and a half years. The Disney animation classic was released on Aug. 13, 1942. The direct-to-video sequel came out on Feb. 7, 2006.

Disney has several films on the list [Wikipedia] of longest period between film sequels. Fantasia, Cinderella, Peter Pan, 101 Dalmatians, and Lady and the Tramp are also in the top 10.

There were nearly 30 years -- 29 years and 309 days to be exact -- between the release of Mad Max Beyond the Thunderdome in 1985 and this year's Mad Max: Fury Road. Aussie filmmaker George Miller has been responsible for all four films in the series. Many say this latest film starring Charlize Theron and Tom Hardy is the best yet. Mad Max: Fury Road is new on DVD and Blu-ray. Watch it today!
