Pixar has been able to keep pace of one film per year, but 2012 was looking to get a little crazy with Brave set for the summer and the Monsters, Inc. prequel Monsters University scheduled for the holiday season. The film would take a look the college days of James “Sulley” Sullivan (John Goodman) and Michael “Mike” Wazowski (Billy Crystal). However, it looks like Pixar will now have more time to work on Monsters University as the Exhibitor Relations Facebook page is reporting that Pixar has moved the film’s release date to June 21, 2013. No other film currently occupies that date, and I’m glad that Pixar now has some breathing room for Monsters University. The film’s old date, November 2, 2012, will now be occupied by Disney’s animated film Reboot Ralph.
