The deuce you say. I heard that the reason the sequel did not happen was because the person who owns the rights to the first movie went to jail and would not give anyone the rights to make the sequel. Is that truth or urban legend? Sequel or prequel, I'd be happy with either or both. When I saw that a sequel was being planned after seeing Buckaroo Banzai for the very first time, my heart leapt for joy. The entire audience applauded. Time went on, so did the actors from the movie, to other projects. If Harrison can do a sequel for Indiana Jones after all these years then why not the original cast of BB as well? I'd pay to see that many times over. If you build it, they will come. I heard that straight from the hornets' nest.
