Greatest Movie Franchises in Movie History

Some of the best movies of all time are part of an epic franchise. These movies listed have 3 or more movies in their franchises and can range anywhere from sci-fi to animated movies. Let’s see what I would class as the top 10 greatest movie franchises in movie history.

Some of you will agree and some disagree with my choices but that’s the great thing about opinions everyone has their own. Let me know in the comments what your favorite movie franchise is. Let’s jump into this movie list…

Star Wars:

There would be a lot of angry people if this franchise wasn’t on my list, so here it is. For the time the first movies were set the effects are pretty darn good, don’t you think?

Toy Story:

This animated franchise is a one often watched in my household. Who doesn’t love buzz, woody, and the gang? I love this franchise because it follows Andy growing up and moving on from his beloved toys.

Pirates Of The Carribean:

I love every single movie that Johnny Depp has starred in but the Pirates Of The Carribean franchise is definitely my favorites. Jack Sparrow is just an awesome character!


Superhero movies are awesome to start with, then comes a franchise where they work together. I have a 5-year-old son who is all about these movies.


This is one of the best feel-good movie franchises I’ve seen. You cant help but sit on the edge of your seat cheering Rocky on.

A Nightmare On Elm Street:

I love a good horror movie and quite often if I’ve got nothing new to watch, it’s good old Freddy Krueger I turn to.

Police Academy:

I don’t know anyone who hasn’t loved these movies after seeing them. As far as comedy movies go sometimes you can’t beat the oldies.


These movies take me back to my teen sleepover days when I would stay at friends eating popcorn and scaring each other, which is why I have so much love for this franchise.

Despicable Me:

I ‘ve watched these movies way more times than I would like to admit but those little yellow minions are just so adorable.

The Hunger Games:

Hunger games are such a powerful movie with a lot of action-packed scenes. Not to mention the main star is a girl… Talk about girl power.
