When a Movie comes out and then it has a sequel The number of years between movies may not be the same as the number of years that take place between the events of the first and second movies. This may cause a case of Dawson Casting or avert it entirely

The Princess Diaries 2: A Royal Engagement took place 5 years after the first despite being made 3 years after the first. In this case The slight case Dawson Casting of the first is averted in the 2nd movie as Mia and Anne hathaway were the same age.

Johnny Kapahala: Back on Board takes place 5 years after the first being made nearly a decade later which induces a case of Dawsons Casting which was averted in the first film

The Zenon movies deal with this with the second being released 2 years later despite happening a year later the second also deals with a regular Time Skip as Zenon goes from 13 to 15 in the year between the two movies. The third movie takes place an additional year later despite being made 3 years later which would make Zenon 16 being played by an about 20 year old Kirsten Storms.
