Monsters University Pushed to 2013!

According to Box Office Mojo, Monsters University has been pushed back to June 21, 2013, half a year after its scheduled premiere.

This news may come as a shock to fans looking forward to the prequel, especially after a large amount of news recently broke on the subject. Previously titled Monsters, Inc. 2, the film had a November 2, 2012 release on the calendar.

Just last week, it was revealed that rising star Dan Scanlon would step up as director. Mater and the Ghostlight (also directed by Scanlon) is one of my favorite movie-based short films, so I think the second installment in the Monsters franchise is in good hands— even if it may take a little longer.

Your thoughts?

    A bit of a bummer since the original date was also the same date the first Monsters Inc came out, wasnt it? I think we’re used to the summer releases though, so nothing too unexpected!

    I was sort of surprised at the original release date, as that would’ve given Pixar two films released in the same year (“Monsters U” and “Brave”), which would have been unprecedented. That also answers the question of what Pixar’s summer movie would be in 2013 since “Newt” had been axed.

    It got pushed back to 2013?! Oh that’s just great! I was looking forward to 2012! Now I have to wait 2 more freaking years! This stinks!

    With Monsters Inc. being my favourite film, naturally I’m a little gutted that we have to wait an extra six months.

    But at the same time, I’m very glad they’re giving Monsters Uni a year to itself. I really wouldn’t want them to jeopardise the quality of either Brave, Monsters, or whatever the 2013 release would have been. We all know Pixar films are so great because of the amount of time and care that goes into them, I’m happy they’re not rushing it.

  6. So I will be 22 when this film comes out, and will have just graduated. brilliant.

    I wonder if this is deliberately planned by PIXAR, so that people who grew up watching Monsters Inc will now be in College like Toy Story 3
