MONSTERS, INC. 2 to be a prequel?
MONSTERS, INC. is one my favorite Pixar films, and now it is one of the few to get the sequel treatment from the studio. With CARS 2 out this year, we won't be seeing MONSTERS, INC. 2 until November 16, 2012. With the release so far away, there's not much concrete news out there yet. However, /Film just picked up the news that MONSTERS, INC. 2 may actually be prequel instead of a usual and expected sequel.
For more on the film, keep reading after the break.
The prequel would focus on Mike and Sully in their youth during their days at the University of Fear. They start out as enemies, and we would learn how they came to be such great friends and partners at Monsters, Inc.
According to /Film, the news is still speculation, based on reports from French site, Disney Plaza Central, and the German site Animatie. The source of their info seems to be a theater catalog distributed by Disney, which has information on all of their upcoming films in 2011 through 2012.
I, for one, am glad they are going the prequel route. I loved the ending of MONSTERS, INC. and can't see how they could top it. But then again, this is Pixar and they continually amaze me.
