Pete Docter to direct Monsters Inc. 2!

Posted on 28 February 2009 by Quaid

According to the guys over at Blue Sky Disney, Pete Docter is gearing up to prepare a sequel to his 2001 smash hit Monsters Inc.  monsters_inc_028The original film is one of my favorites, and as long as they keep Docter around and make this a full-blown Pixar effort, I’m excited.  I mean, I was down on Toy Story 2 when I first heard about it, and I couldn’t have been more wrong.

Docter is currently doing promotion to his just-completed film Up, so don’t expect a formal announcement until things settle on that front.

The movie is a likely 2013 release for Pixar (assuming Roland Emmerich is wrong and the world doesn’t end in 2012).

I gotta say, though, I hope Pixar doesn’t turn into a studio that predominantly makes sequels to their proven franchises.  I mean, there’s no need…ALL of their movies make ridiculous amounts of money, so is a sequel really a “safer bet” than developing new properties?

Ah well.  I’ll put my trust in Pixar.  They’re the one studio in Hollywood that hasn’t made a bad movie.  Ever.
