    Don't be afraid. Pixar screens "Monsters2" at Disney this morning. Don't ask. I know nothing.
    3/26
    Nice to see a new director helming Pixar's "Monsters2." Very refreshing.

    Re: 'Monsters Inc. 2' - scary updates

    I hope its good I lid the first film but a Prequel does not seem like it will have any suspense since WE KNOW what happens to Mike and Sully...rather have a sequel about "alternative fuels" might wake some people up in America.

    Re: 'Monsters Inc. 2' - scary updates

    on Tuesday Disney/Pixar announced the long-awaited next film in the franchise would go back to their days as college students.

    Monsters University is set for a late 2012 debut, and Both Crystal and Goodman will return as the main characters, according to Dave Hollis, Disney’s executive vice president of worldwide distribution.

    “The film is a prequel that tells you a little bit about how [Mike and Sully] first met, attending Monsters University,” Hollis told theater owners gathered in Las Vegas on Tuesday for their annual CinemaCon convention. “Obviously everybody knows at this point Mike and Sully are amazing friends — the best of friends — but as it turns out, in this story, that wasn’t always the case. From the moment they met at university, they could not stand each other. This story takes you through the ups and downs, and how they overcame their own differences.”

    Maybe it will be like a flashback or something. Like a bedtime story for Boo.

    I take it this "screening" was more like storyboards, less fleshed out than the famous Beauty and the Beast screening.

    Work-in-progress screening of footage for execs & WDAS brain trust, get the studio in Burbank pumped before hitting Las Vegas for the presentation for theatres owners, etc.

    Re: 'Monsters Inc. 2' - scary updates

    In all honesty, is Pixar trying to make a dud?

    - Plot that's been done to death.
    - With it being a prequel, it doesn't leave much room for any surprises.

    It all sounds way too safe, and while Pixar has had a rather good track record...it's like they say "There's a first time for everything."

    Maybe her mom was a kid a some point. Or how fabulous will it be to have a whole new realm of monsters to meet...

    This sounds like a good movie!
    Jessie is AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    My fav part in 2 is:
    Buzz: clears throat)
    I just wanted to say you're a bright young woman with a beautiful "yarnful" of hair... er, "hairful" of yarn. It's...uh...woah. (clears throat) I must go!
    Jessie: Well, aren't you the sweetest space toy I ever met!
    Buster: (barking)
    Slinky: What's that? Bark, bark? Uh...this fellow says he needs to go out back for a little "private time"!
    Jessie: That critter needs help! (jumps on toy car) Yodle-ay-HEEE-HOOO!!!!!
    Buzz: (wings suddenly pop open)

    Also, my fav part in 3 is:
    Jessie: turns on Spanish music)
    Buzz: involenterily starts dancing) I...I don't know what came over me!
    Jessie: goo-goo eyes) Just go with it, Buzz!
    (Then, they start doing the Paso Doble to a Spanish version of "You've Got a Friend in Me". Towards the end of the dance, Woody tosses Jessie a rose to catch in her mouth. It's awesome.)
