Aside from the great Toy Story and Toy Story 2, Pixar Animations have always been very anti-sequel. And why not? Everything that they’ve done has been completely original and downright amazing.
Now, with Toy Story 3 coming out next and Cars 2 well on its way, as well as the constant demand from fans for The Incredibles 2, things are looking a tad more sequel-friendly over at Pixar, and it does not stop there. Latino Review has heard from an inside source that now there’s even a Monsters, Inc. 2 on the agenda for the studio.
Monsters, Inc. was incredibly popular so this comes as no big shock — I can see this much easier than said Cars 2, that’s for sure. Still, you can’t help but wonder why all of the sequels suddenly? Have the geniuses there finally run out of original ideas? I very much doubt this. Are they doing it in an attempt to secure some significant profits to be used on new original films? Could be, I suppose. Has Disney gotten their hands in too deep and are now controlling where things go? I shudder to think.
Whatever the reason, these movies look like they’re on the way!
Nothing is confirmed yet, but if this does happen, it’s almost guaranteed that both Billy Crystal and John Goodman will happily reprise their roles of Mike and Sully.
Pixar always has their schedule long-planned in advance, so any signs of Monsters, Inc. 2 are still a few years off, of course.
