Mensagem:  The English word sequel has three meanings:

1. A literary work, movie, etc., that is complete in itself but continues the narrative of a preceding work. [seqüência, continuação]

2. An event or circumstance following something; subsequent course of affairs. [sucessão]

3. Result, consequence, or inference. [resultado, conseqüência, seqüela]

Therefore, the words sequel (English) and seqüela (Portuguese) are only equivalent in the third meaning. However, this meaning is not the most common one in either English or Portuguese.
