It feels less like a First Class sequel due to the absence of so many characters and the 11-year jump. The inclusion of so many returning actors from the original trilogy makes it seem more like a sequel to The Last Stand. But it's a bit of both, I suspect.
Thankfully, having both sets of actors and both eras (past and future) means it's an ideal set-up to do DoFP.
