Monsters, Inc. Prequel Titled Monsters University!

At this year’s CinemaCon event in Las Vegas, Disney announced the official title replacing Monsters, Inc. 2

Monsters University!

In turn, the studio also indirectly confirmed the plot of Pixar’s 2012 sequel. I’ll admit that when I first heard the rumors, I was pretty skeptical, but the idea sounds absolutely fantastic.

Reports leaked in January that Monsters, Inc. 2 would not be a sequel, but instead a prequel to the popular 2001 film. Monsters University reportedly follows Mike and Sulley way back in their college days. The word is that the inseparable duo had quite the rivalry at the University of Fear.

Monsters University is set to premiere exactly 11 years after the original, on November 2, 2012.

Your thoughts?

    I’m open to the idea — but seriously, how they’re going to have the heart of this film NOT be Boo (because of course, its a prequel) is going to require some real creativity . . .

    I wanted to see preteen Boo. D:
    But I guess this idea is fine, too…

    I wish it was just 10 years! unfortunately it’s 2012 not 2011, and will premiere in exactly 11 years

    Initially I was lukewarm to another Monsters Inc film but this sounds like it will really work. Looking forward to it a lot now.

    November 2011? 2011? I thought it was in 2012… Is that just a typo?

    Yup, just a typo. My bad guys.

    Monsters Inc. is my favourite Pixar film, so as soon as heard the rumours of a second movie I was thrilled. But then I started worrying that a sequel would mess with the wonderful conclusion of the original.

    But a prequel sounds like a fantastic idea! Seriously hoping that Celia went to the same college as Mike and Sully though…
