Remember the big Toy Story display at the Las Vegas International Licensing Fair we posted about last week?
Wasn’t this about a Monsters sequel? You did not read the title of this article incorrectly, that big display for Pixar’s 2010 release wasn’t the only thing Disney showed for Pixar Animation Studios… Jim Hill Media is reporting that another Pixar sequel (besides Cars 2) was previewed for potential licensees at this year’s fair behind closed doors . Yup, you guessed it! It’s the long rumored sequel to Pete Docter’s directorial debut, Monsters, Inc.!
Unlike the other Pixar sequels, the blog is reporting that the original director will be helming part 2. So while the Up DVD/Blu-ray/Awards tours are wrapping… UP, we can expect Pete to talk up Mike and Sulley’s return to the big screen! When can I come back to Monstropolis I hear you ask? Tentatively, 2013.
Also of note: Remember how Monsters, Inc. on Blu-ray was supposed to come out this Spring but was pushed back to this Fall? Sounds to me like a good conversation starter for a sequel. Speaking of release dates, this rumored (or is it confirmed?) sequel will be out 12 years after the original in 2001, just saying.
We’ll bring you any more information that finds it’s way online as soon as possible. But for now, tell us what you think? Are you excited for this project or are the scream canisters in Monstropolis quickly filling up?
