Teen Wolf the Movies

In the last couple of weeks I have rewatched Teen Wolf the movie, the one with Michael J. Fox, the new Teen Wolf series (season two which I find super confusing) and now Teen Wolf Too, the movie sequel starring Jason Bateman.

Teen Wolf Too gets one star on my tv system, which is possibly too generous. The character arc is the same as Teen Wolf - character is in school, is shitty at sports, likes a flashy dame who is "out of his league", pals around with a still beautiful but supposedly less attractive "girl next door", the turns into a werewolf. He becomes awesome at sports (basketball in the first film, boxing in the second), everyone loves him, the power goes to his head, he acts like an asshole, sleeps with the flashy dame, then eventually gets his act together and ends up rejecting his wolf half and getting together with the girl next door.

So it's essentially the same story done twice, but once super terribly. Now I wonder was Teen Wolf Too the first draft of Teen Wolf? The writers got feedback, made it better, made a fun film that is pretty silly and then a couple of years later made the original version, with a few changes? It kind of makes sense...
