Pixar, Disney set dates for “Monsters Inc.” sequel, “Brave”

With the highly anticipated “Toy Story” sequel in the summer-movie pipeline, Pixar tossed two more projects on our radars by announcing release dates.

Pixar’s “Monsters Inc. 2” will hit theaters on Nov. 16, 2012. It will be filmed and presented in 3-D (of course).

But that’s not the only Pixar feature being released that year. In addition, Walt Disney Pictures announced during a presentation that Pixar’s “Brave,” formerly titled “The Bear and the Bow,” will be released on June 15, 2012.

“Up” director Pete Docter helmed the original “Monsters,” which found John Goodman and Billy Crystal voicing the beasts who emerge from kids’ closets to harvest screams. There’s no word on the plot of the sequel, or news regarding the return of Goodman, Crystal or Docter, though I’d bet Docter returns to the franchise he created for Pixar (much like John Lasseter did for the second “Toy Story” before handing things over to Lee Unkrich.

As for “Brave,” it follows the story of a defiant Scottish princess named Merida, who will be voiced by Reese Witherspoon. It will be directed by Brenda Chapman, whose animation credits include work on “The Prince of Egypt,” “Beauty and the Beast,” “The Lion King” and Pixar’s “Cars.”

    2012 is going to be a big year for Pixar! I’m looking forward to more details about each movie. And if the promotional methods Pixar’s using for TS3 is any indication of future strategies (introducing us to new characters over the months and promo videos online) then the entire year shall be filled with anticipation and fun for each film. It’s going to be GREAT!
