Don't be frightened, Monsters University has a new director

03.31.2011

Here's a brief bit of news for everyone.

The prequel to MONSTERS INC., MONSTERS UNIVERSITY has found a director. Who pray tell is this gentleman of leisure and class? It's Dan Scanlon, the helmer for the CARS short, MATER AND THE GHOSTLIGHT.

Pete Docter was the director for the first film. Does the directing change bother anyone? I didn't see the CARS short, but with this being a prequel I can see why they might bring in a new director.

Noticed that a few of you were upset for several different reasons when it came up that the story would be a prequel. A few of you mentioned that you wanted more original content, more Boo, a sequel for THE INCREDIBLES, and so on. I agree with all these things, though I really think that MONSTERS U might be something really fun.

It was also confirmed that Billy Crystal and John Goodman would be back on to lend their voices to Mike and Sully. In case you didn't hear, the story will be about how Mike and Sully first met and despite their differences became good friends.

Extra Tidbit: Kind of reminds me of Casper's Scare School.

I think Niki just came up with a much better title: "Monsters U."
Not only is it catchier, but it's also an abbreviation like Inc.

Monsters Inc. is my favorite Pixar movie. My expectations for this are astronomical, don't disappoint me, Scanlon!

It's Good

The short was cool and very well done. I see no problem with this considering this will be a prequel.

This seems more like a good idea for a short released with Monsters Inc 2 like Mikes New Car in the first one.

I'll take the longview on this.

It's Pixar, so it'll be decent at worst. They need these films to sell toys so they can make more films like UP. And I want more films like UP.

they made a LOT of original, great films without having to stoop to sequels or, for fuck's sake, talking cars. why start this trend now?

I can't say anything about it before i see anything for it but i don't like the looks of it.

Pete Doctor has been responsible for my two favourite pixar movies so the fact that his replacement is someone who's only other experience was a sub par short for a sub par film... that doesn't make things better.
