One thing that people are missing from my point is that there needs to be a single united vision to create a memorable trilogy. Do not forget how important the producer is to projects. The producer needs to be on the same page as the director. The producer needs to also see the director's vision in order to be a benefactor in it.
I believe that the producer should suggest their ideas and help the director on creating a solid trilogy, but the problem is that producers and execs force their ideas upon directors instead of talking it out.
