Monsters Inc. 2 will actually be called Monsters University

03.29.2011

We've already heard that Disney and Pixar will be taking us back to Monstropolis with a follow-up to the wonderful MONSTERS, INC. and have announced the title:

MONSTERS UNIVERSITY.

The movie will reportedly be a prequel, so we won't be seeing an older Boo or the newly giggle-powered city. As one can deduce from the title, the story will revolve around our heroes Sully and Mike Wazowski, along with devious chameleon Randall Boggs, as they learn the particulars of wringing screeches from innocent young humans.

Original voice actors John Goodman, Billy Crystal and Steve Buscemi are all expected to return (seriously, who wouldn't want to do another Pixar movie?). We should be hearing soon which Pixar veteran(s) will be getting a crack at directing this one.

Disney had previously announced a planned release of November 16th, 2012.

A little surprised to see it's a Prequel, but it's going to be great. Incredibles 2 next, please. Originals after that, please.

Only reason Cars is a getting a sequel quicker than the others is because of all the piece of shit merchandise that comes along with Lightning McQueen and Mater

Would prefer more original stuff from Pixar, but if they have to do a sequel, I agree with the majority that it should be Incredibles gosh darn it!

Prequel = only way to go

I'm not thrilled about revisiting this Universe as a whole, but glad that it is NOT a (totally impossible to pull off) sequel.

Well, then Pixar officially peaked with Toy Story 3 - the company that could do no wrong has succumbed to making a friggen prequel. Goddammit, in the original the main characters LEARNED that scaring kids wasn't a nice way of generating power and now we have to watch a friggen prequel where they LEARN how to scare kids?

Yes, you truly have a lot of information to base your conclusion on. All those movies after Toy Story 3 have clearly been steadily declining in quality.... oh wait.

Well, Cars 2 certainly looks like a piece of shit sequel to a rare shitty original from Pixar.

Oh, really, Bigger Boat? Fuck me, I thought Obama was gonna make viewing of this movie mandatory. That's a fucking relief. Thanks for letting me know.

extra tidbit: nope your not the only one. This is pretty cool. Not sure if I would rather see a sequel or prequel, but if the original cast returns then I'm down.

I am looking forward to this as well, but sadly I don't really think that having the original cast return is a direct correlation with how well this movie will do.... i.e., look at Star Trek V....

i feel like this is a better idea, a prequel rather than a sequel. Cars 2, uhh... its Pixar so i'll see it, but i would much rather Incredibles 2, like c'mon!

That's great, Pixar. You fascinate me. May I please have my damn Incredibles sequel now? You know, probably the most franchise worthy of the Pixar films besides Toy Story?

I think Cars is Pixar's weakest film, and the fact it got a sequel prior to both The Incredibles and Monsters Inc. is an insult.

I hope they have a scene where Mike is enrolled in a drama class and is rehearsing for a musical. "Put that thing back where it came from or so help me. So help me!"

I'm sorry, I love Pixar

and Monsters Inc is one of my favourite movies from Pixar, but other sites have said the story will focus on Mike and Sully being enemies at first and then slowly turning friends. If this is true, then I am so disappointed.

Toy Story 3 gets a pass because it was brilliant but.. enough with the sequels. The only movies Pixar made that set up as a franchise were Toy Story and The Incredibles.

I'm sorry, I worded that wrong. I didn't mean that they were setup as much as I meant the endings set them up for future installments.

Its all about promotion.

I guess I will answer that tidbit question. Disney has cars 2 first because they have a cars area coming soon to disney's california adventure park. The movie in essense is to help build publicity for the park addition. The monsters inc sequal is to help promote a new monsters inc coaster at disney's hollywood studios theme park. Each time a pixar sequal is done its to push a disney park addition like the new toy story 3 and the toy story ride at disney's hollywood studios. Disney times some of

Disney times some of these movies as promotion so they advertise for their theme parks. That is just how disney works some times.

lol a Pixar prequel? I loved Monsters, Inc. but I'm kinda surprised they're doing the whole "The College Years!" thing.
