Series of films in which the first two or three have boy as main character, then comes a sequel with girl in main role

Apparently, the reverse -- series starting with girls, later replaced by boy characters -- has never been done, except perhaps with Little Men (Louisa May Alcott, Boston: Roberts Brothers, 1871) which followed Little Women (Alcott, same publisher, 1868/1869)
