*** The same season's finale is similarly a four-parter, and because the second half of this one takes us off planet, the season 4 premiere takes us back to the desert canyon where there were still a few loose plot threads from the first half.

*** The same season's finale is similarly arc (minus the 100th episode special) ups the ante by essentially being a four-parter, ''six-parter'', with the first two-thirds serving as a character arc for Amethyst, and because the second half last third of this one takes us off planet, the season 4 premiere takes us back to the desert canyon where there were still a few loose plot threads from the first half.second-third, basically making it a ''seven''-part story!.

** The ending scene to ''Film/RogueOne'' [[spoiler:directly leads to the opening of ''Film/ANewHope'' with the rebels making a run for it aboard the ''Tantive IV'' having acquired the Death Star plans after the climactic Battle of Scariff. Even features a cameo of Princess Leia]]. One could probably edit the two back to back and they'd blend seamlessly; though given ''Rogue One'' is currently in theaters it's not currently testable.

This happens while they are still in the onion carriage they drove away in at the end of the film.

* ''StarTrekIIITheSearchForSpock'' opens with the last set of events of ''StarTrekIITheWrathOfKhan'' and picks up shortly thereafter with the damaged ''Enterprise'' making it's way back to Earth spacedock following the Battle of the Mutara Nebula [[spoiler:and Spock's funeral above the Genesis Planet]]. Of all the entries in the ''StarTrek'' film series, ''Star Trek III'' is the only one to immediately follow it's predecessor.



* As a cross-media example, ''[[Film/RevengeOfTheSith Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith]]'' begins a few hours after the end of the original ''[[WesternAnimation/StarWarsCloneWars Clone Wars]]'' series (after Palpatine had been scooped up by Grievous and the Separatist forces and the Jedi launch a rescue operation). Unfortunately this was rendered as CanonDiscontinuity due to the [[WesternAnimation/StarWarsTheCloneWars CGI series]] (and that series was CutShort so it doesn't even get to explain what happens prior to the battle above Coruscant that kicks off ''Episode III'').
** With the release of ''Film/RogueOne'', this trope is inverted—[[spoiler: The end of Film/RogueOne takes place directly before Film/ANewHope, to the point that one could probably put the two back to back and they'd blend just fine]] (though given Rogue One is currently in theaters that's not currently testable).

Interestingly, this is the only ''StarTrek'' film in the series to immediately follow it's predecessor.
