    The new Mad Max movie is longer than that (30 years).

    Bambi - 1942
    Bambi II - 2006

    Or... if you want a sequel people actually recognize that wasn't straight to video.

    Fantasia - 1940
    Fantasia 2000 - 2000

    Or non animated with original actors.

    Tron - 1982
    Tron Legacy - 2010

    Fantasia comes to mind. That was in the 40s, and the sequel was Fantasia 2000.

    Are those sequels or just remakes?

    Bambi is a legit sequel. It picks up where the original movie left off.

    Fantasia is a tricky one since it's basically just music and animation, not exactly a story line. It's called a sequel, but I suppose that could be debatable.

    I was thinking of Psycho as well, but I looked it up, and it's not nearly as long as I thought it was.

    Tron/Tron was the first thing that came to mind.

    National Velvet/International Velvet. Maltese Falcon/Black Bird.

    Blade Runner will be up there if/when it finally gets made and released.

    If prequels count, The Thing/The Thing (the circa 1982 and circa 2011) versions.

    If you really want to get technical about it, it's actually 69 years. The Mummy (1932) and The Mummy Returns (2001)... Oz the Great and Powerful was a prequel, not a sequel. Hell, Dorothy wasn't even in it...

    Then you have to include The Thing from Another World (1951).

    Off the top of my head, with The Hustler taken, I could only come up with The Last Picture Show ('71) and Texasville ('90).

    I have to tip my hat to the Tron mentions, since they included original cast members. I really can't include all the "sequels" produced by entirely different casts and crews.

    My first thought was Godfather II (1974) and III (1990) but that ain't nuthin!

    I don't think we can count Bambi.

    Bambi - 1942
    Bambi Meets Godzilla - 1969
    Bambi II - 2006

    No doubt - GFIII was abysmal.

    That's mostly because the director burned every bridge in Hollywood making his first movie.

    My favorite sequels are the ones that never get made.

    No one needs Hollywood to make a movie anymore.

    The documentary "Overnight" about Troy Duffy and the making of Boondock Saints is the funniest thing ever. It should be required watching for anyone in the industry about how not to act in Hollywood. Or just about how not to treat people in general. :)

    Burning Bridges is an understatement. He bad mouthed every actor in Hollywood, screwed over his band, and of course basically told Harvey Weinstein to go **** himself. :)

    And we wonder why he doesn't make movies anymore.
