I’m not sure what to think about this, though it does say it is ‘unconfirmed’ at best. I personally did not find the sequel ending to be utterly wrapped up, but it’s possible they’re avoiding the potential difficulties which could result from a sequel (too many possibilities and it would almost be impossible to make everyone happy), and then again a prequel could be considered better than a messed up sequel. Of course that all depends and there’s still a possibility it will go wrong. Plus I’m curious as to what it will be, but then the author has not (exactly) done their research, isn’t it for definite Docter is not completing this film at all? Or are they suggesting when Docter said he wasn’t working on a sequel, he meant in reality a prequel as a sort of silly joke to keep things underwraps?
I also partially agree with one poster on the site that it does lose some of it’s suspense, as interesting as seeing the past might be. Plus what could this threat be if there is one?
Plus, didn’t Sulley and Mike already know each other from grade school in the actual movie?
“You’ve been jealous of my good looks since the fourth grade pal”: Mike, as they walk to work, after Sulley’s joke about Monstropolis’ most wanted.
I like the idea of enemies to friends but… yeah. Not exactly entirely canon-compliant I guess you could say.
I’d take this with a pinch of salt myself, but if it’s true and they’ve suddenly ‘met for the first time’, this is completely out of sorts with what is in the original movie- we know they’ve known each other for years from the first movie! Plus a university for scaring? That doesn’t sound plausible, and it’s a rediculous name in my opinion. Unless of course it’s some very small technical college or something, but still, weird name.
I’m not so sure this could be considered a plausible idea, or at least I’m not sure it would fit with the original movie. I mean unless they’ve held a grudge for all those years- but Sulley doesn’t seem to be the type. Though I guess Mike is. But I always thought Mike and Sulley HAD been friends since grade school.
This is… really strange. A prequel could work but I’m rather confused by this if this is the true premise.
I think this might be a red herring. Though I’m not putting my money on that.
