What Happens After Happily Ever After?

What happened to Cinderella? Beauty and the Beast? The family on Fresh Prince of Bel-Air? The kids in Suite Life of Zack and Cody? The Bernstein Bears? Rapunzel? Mulan? I love where are they now, reunion episodes, and endings like on the series finale of Parks and Rec because I like to see their future and get closure. A lot of shows end with vague happy endings. But I know their life does not stay the same as it did the moment the show ends forever. What really happens after movies and books end? Do they live happily ever after or simply cease to exist? We assume that since the characters have gotten what they wanted and fought through the action for that they live happily ever? But what if they live a normal life full of trouble, sorrow, and other human emotions. Or maybe they simply don’t grow up or keep living, they stop existing when we finish with them.

  2. It depends on the story, and how well (thorough) the character and motivations… the plot… I dunno.

    Follow up movies and spinoffs and um… remakes? It’s a precarious venture…

    Better be greater than great… there is no in between.

    (For instance… there’s talk of a new princess bride… I’m terrified. Lol)

    And… oh yeah… recent bad example? The xfiles redux… 😕

    1. Yes! I agree! With follow-ups it’s always should they or should they not? It does ruin the movie sometimes. Some things Ned’s so perfectly it should go untouched. And they have been doing a lot of remakes and it’s not the same.
