MONSTERS, INC. 2 to Be a Prequel?

by     Posted 3 years, 241 days ago


File this one in the rumor pile for now, but the upcoming sequel to Pixar’s Monsters, Inc. might actually be a prequel.  Disney Central Plaza [via Stitch Kingdom] is reporting that a Disney film catalog has a brief plot synopsis for the film.  According to the catalog, 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.”

That’s an interesting premise, although it should be noted that the plots of Pixar’s films have a tendency to change and evolve over the course of development.  Monsters, Inc. 2 (tentative title) is set for release on November 2, 2012.  Pete Docter will return to direct.

    Well that sounds like a much better idea than trying to add something to the end of Monsters, Inc. The first film ended beautifully and anything added after that would risk ruining such a perfect ending, but a prequel… that certainly has potential.

    I know it’s just a rumor at this point, but I’m liking that idea far more than a sequel.

    I’m still worried, even though it’s Pixar

    As long as the actual screenplay does not use the terms “BFFs” or “frenemies” (and let’s just throw in “bromance,” as well), this film should be fine.

    I would really love if they will continue Sully, Mike and Boo’s story…a prequel seems like so predictable.We all know they’d turn out friends in the end.What we don’t know is what happened to Boo or did they ever saw boo again, or will they?

    Illusionoflife is trying to make Pixar dillusional! A PREQUEL WOULD SUCK! A sequel is what has potential! A prequel is predictable! You already know whats gonna happen whats the point. They could have flashbacks in the sequel. In the sequel Boo could be a teen human that wants to live in the monster world cause her classmates think she wierd living in fantasies. Mike and Celia could get married. Sulley could even find someone of his own and make Boo jealous. A more scary villan than Randall. I really want Sulleys,mikes and boos story too continue. Man this prequel is gonna blow! Pixar should change it while they still have a chance!!!!
