Pixar seem to be going sequel crazy at the moment, what with Toy Story 3 receiving much applause last year, and Cars 2 revving onto screens later in 2011.
But Monsters Inc. 2 could be a departure for the studio, with new information suggesting it could actually be a prequel, rather than a follow-on sequel.
Disney Central Plaza report that a shiny new Disney film catalogue contains a brief synopsis for the kiddie scare-em-up, which reads:
‘ Monsters Inc. 2 will take us back to before a time when Mike Wazowski was top comedian, before James P. Sullivan was top scarer, even before the buddies joined the MI workforce.
In fact it takes us all the way back to school — the University of Fear to be precise. Although the two start out as frenemies, Monsters, Inc. 2 will weave the tale of how the dynamic duo transition from rivals to BFFs .’
As we all know, though, Pixar plotlines are wont to change during pre-production, so this could easily just be a prototype plot.
Now when are we going to get Incredibles 2 , eh?
