Has Pixar Finally Decided to Make Monsters Inc 2?!
Could it be true?! Early this morning my friend Thomas Huxley of Upcoming Pixar pointed me to an article published on a blog called Blue Sky Disney. They claim that Pixar has finally given the greenlight to director Pete Docter to start planning for his next movie after finishing Up, and it just so happens to be none other than Monsters Inc 2 - the most requested Pixar sequel (next to maybe The Incredibles). They don't give any other new details besides that it will be slated for 2013 and that Docter has been working on this sequel for a while, which all actually makes a lot of sense, but we're still not sure if it's completely true or not.
We've heard rumors like this before (see here), but for some odd reason I'm a bit more convinced this time around. In fact, this is the perfect time for more news like this to hit, because Pete Docter is appearing at the Up presentation at WonderCon this weekend, which means we can try and get an answer out of him once and for all. Thomas seems pretty confident that the news is legit and that we can trust that blog, but obviously we're still going to say it's a rumor until someone at Disney or Pixar tells us otherwise. If this is indeed Pixar's movie for 2013, than I'll be quite be ecstatic, because I've been waiting for this day!
