Re: How much time passes between TMP and TWoK?

"Jaws 2" is another early example of a numbered sequel, although they went with an Arabic numeral.

It's worth remembering that, before franchise films became big "tentpole" blockbusters, there was a bit of stigma attached to sequels, which were generally seen as B-movie fare. I suspect that the "Part II" thing was at least partially an attempt to make a much-hyped sequel sound classier and more "respectable" than, say, "Bride of the Son of the Godfather" or "The Return of Jaws."
