** Vader's suit was dirtier in the first movie and the metal part on his chest was behind the two cloth strips instead of in front of them. The eyepieces on his helmet were also tinted a very dark red before switching to solid black in ''Empire'' and beyond.The more primitive Vader suit is also visible in ''Rogue One''.

** The lightsaber battle in ''Franchise/StarWars Episode IV - Film/ANewHope'' is quite stiff and awkward compared to the more dramatic and gymnastic swordfights in later installments. According to Creator/MarkHamill, the original lightsaber props had motors to rotate the "blades," making them too heavy and dangerous for any impressive {{flynning}}. Also, Obi-Wan's lightsaber "flickers" in mid-battle, while most subsequent lightsabers do not.

** Darth Vader showed far more emotion when delivering his lines than he would in the sequels - he actually showed anger and rage when tearing through the Rebel ship and later showed amusement when Force choking an uppity Imperial during a meeting. This behavior returned in the prequel film ''Film/RogueOne''

* The original ''Film/DeathWish'' is a gritty, realistic, look at urban decay and out of control crime in major American cities during the era. The movie was such a hit largely because it embodied the feelings of many honest citizens at the time. In the end there is no dramatic showdown with the men who killed his wife and raped his daughter, they simply disappear into the city and Paul will never know who they were. There's little graphic violence, but what there is is very disturbing. Nothing in the movie could be defined as gratuitous. When the schlocky production company Creator/CannonFilms bought the rights eight years later, they began releasing sequels that were more or less exploitation and dumb 1980s-style revenge fantasy action films.

* The first ''WesternAnimation/AlphaAndOmega'' film is different from its sequels in four ways. The first is that it is the only film released in theaters meanwhile the rest are DirectToDVD. Secondly, Kate and Humphrey's pups who are the stars of the sequels are absent since this film shows how their parents met and fell in love. Third, the animation quality is higher. Lastly, the first film's animals are less anthropomorphized than in the sequels.

* ''Disney/{{Maleficent}}'' started, or at least inspired, Creator/{{Disney}}'s trend of making LiveActionAdaptation's of their Franchise/DisneyAnimatedCanon. Despite this, it is extremely different from the other titles. ''Maleficent'' is obviously an AlternateUniverse PerspectiveFlip take on ''Disney/SleepingBeauty''. It contradicts the original film in location (Scotland instead of England), [[AdaptationNameChange names]] (Diablo's name, and all the fairies have different names, in ''Maleficent''), and most of all the characterization of both [[AdaptationalHeroism the title character]] and [[AdaptationalVillainy King Stefan]]. Starting with ''Film/{{Cinderella 2015}}'', the films instead became more straighter adaptations. They follow the original films more accurately while still being more realistic than the original's and having their fair share of differences.
