By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Sequels seem to be the name of the game at Pixar Animation Studios these days, which isn’t a problem, so long as they maintain the quality of the two “Toy Story” follow ups.
We’ll know more about “Cars 2” soon (the sequel opens in theaters on June 24). In the meantime, we’re turning our attentions to the “Monsters Inc.” sequel, which has targeted a June 21, 2013 release date.
A prequel to the original film, “Monsters 2” follows scare masters James “Sully” Sullivan (voiced by John Goodman) and Mike Wazowski (voiced by Billy Crystal) during their college days, before they became best friends.
Pixar recently revealed an official logo for the sequel, as well as a plot synopsis. What do you think? Are you ready for more “Monsters,” or would you rather see Pixar go back to original programming?
Mike Wazowski and James P. Sullivan are an inseparable pair, but that wasn’t always the case. From the moment these two mismatched monsters met they couldn’t stand each other. “Monsters University” unlocks the door to how Mike and Sulley overcame their differences and became the best of friends.
Screaming with laughter and fun, “Monsters University” is directed by Dan Scanlon (“Cars,” “Mater and the Ghostlight,” “Tracy”) and produced by Kori Rae (“Up,” “The Incredibles,” “Monsters, Inc.”). The film opens in U.S. theaters on June 21, 2013, and will be shown in Disney Digital 3D™ in select theaters.
