Pixar confirms “Monsters Inc.” prequel

By Sean O’Connell On the heels of fresh revelations for Pixar’s in-development “Brave” – which showed the first decent image of the film’s hero, Merida, this morning – we have even more news from the animation studio.

For instance, during Tuesday night’s presentation in Las Vegas’ CinemaCon, the studio revealed that plans are moving forward for a “Monsters Inc.” prequel titled “Monsters University.”

John Goodman and Billy Crystal are supposed to return as Sully and Mike Wazowski for the film, which will explore how the monsters met in college before going on to work for the scream factory. Rumors posted over at AICN say Steve Buscemi will return as the villainous lizard Randall.

This makes more sense than forcing a sequel on these characters. Certain Pixar franchises set themselves up for a sequel – like, I don’t know, “The Incredibles” – but “Monsters” ended on a perfect note. We don’t want to see Boo as a teenager. I’d rather go back to the earlier days of the monstrous best friends.

Speaking of “The Incredibles,” the new Blu-ray edition of the film arrived in our mailbox yesterday. We’ll review it soon, but the best part was the inclusion of the “Lion King” Blu-ray trailer. The movie reportedly will make it to Blu-ray in Fall 2011. The trailer is below!

    Why doesnt Pixar do a sequel to the Incredibles??? My God, it is certainly my favorite and I believe much more deserving than Cars or even Monsters Inc.
