The one thing I was thinking is that movies would have to be set in the summer so as to stand alone. Many things come to mind, then. Here's three:
I could see Rachel signing everyone up for a music camp and even arranging for the camp to provide the cost for everyone. How? Well, by the glee club members having to serve as camp counselors for all the 10-12 year old kids. The climax of the camp being the show the kids and counselors are to put on. And the humor and warmth being the ways the various glee club personalities deal with the kids and their mischief/problems.
Or here's an idea to include Jesse -- again, during the summer. Maybe some kind of accident or injury or health problem that will mean Rachel's mother will be on medical leave from teaching ... with a new baby to take care of. And Rachel and Jesse get both glee clubs to "put on a show." Can imagine sub plots that bring the baby back into play and Rachel and her mother developing some kind of relationship, maybe some comic permit problems, etc.
A third idea, for after they are national champions is some kind of foreign tour. It could be as simple as to London ... but some really strange countries would be more fun.
