It’s only a rumor right now, but a pretty good one: Pixar’s “Monsters, Inc. 2” will be a prequel, with the story focusing during Mike and Sulley’s days at the University of Fear, how they started off as enemies and became friends. Several websites, including indiewire.com, say the tip-off of the plot came from a catalog that the studio gave to theater owners about their 2011 and 2012 films.
“MI2” (not to be confused with the second “Mission Impossible” film), is schedule to be released in theaters November 12, 2012. No word yet if Billy Crystal and John Goodman will be back doing the voices of the two main monsters.
We’ll likely get our first trailer for the film before “Cars 2” this summer.
