It's been a slow week, so I'm happy to see that Disney has dropped an unexpected but awesome surprise on us. First, I love Monsters, Inc.
Still with me? Okay, because Pixar, Disney or whoever announced that a Monsters, Inc. sequel is coming November 16th, 2012.
Monsters, Inc. Sequel Coming
Disney chairman Rich Ross made the announcement Thursday from the studio lot. Monsters, Inc., released 2001, is only the third Disney/Pixar property to have a sequel behind Toy Story and Cars, which has a Cars 2 in the works. I find it odd that they are doing a Cars sequel, since that was easily my least favorite film. But I digress...
Monsters, Inc. not only made me laugh, but it also went on to make $525 million worldwide.
In other Pixar news, the studio has also announced that we can expect their next film project, Brave, on June 15, 2012; making two Pixar movies that year. Starring Reese Witherspoon, Brave tells the story of an impulsive princess (Witherspoon) who aims to shed her royal ties and become the world's first, great female archer. Writer/director Brenda Chapman (Cars) is behind the project.
