List Rules 3 or more movies of the same characters or story.

The best movie franchises of all time have brought us some of the best movies ever as well as some billion dollar films and many of them are still cranking out classics (Toy Story 4?? Yes, folks, Pixar has confirmed that it's happening!) This is your chance to vote for what you think is the greatest movie franchise ever and see how your favorite movie franchises rank against other movie enthusiasts' choices.

Some people will judge a franchise based on its best parts (*cough*Star Wars*cough*) while others will take all the parts of a franchise into account when ranking the top movie series, so don't get offended if you see The Lord of the Rings further down this list than you think it should be (FYI- The Hobbit counts as part of that franchise). Also try to keep in mind that movie franchises that will have three or more movies but don't yet (like The Hunger Games) do not yet qualify for this list of the best movie franchises of all time.

Vote on these top movie franchises based on the series as a whole, or just because one or two of the movies mean something special to you. If you don't see your favorite movie franchise on the list, make sure to add it so you can see where it shakes out among the greatest movie franchises ever.
