Watch: Disney & Pixar's 3D Re-Release of 'Monsters Inc.' Gets Trailer
Leading up to next summer's release of Pixar's prequel Monsters University, Disney is sending Monsters Inc. back to theaters in 3D just before Christmas. It's a good year for Pixar re-releases in 3D as Finding Nemo also returns to theaters in the third dimension (watch the trailer right here), and now the hype for the return of Mike and Sully comes in the form of the first trailer for the 3D version of the 2001 film. Though the film still looks great, it's easy to see how far computer animation has come in 11 years with elements like hair and other textures that look a little plastic-like. But I can't wait to see that door sequence in 3D! Watch!
Here's the first trailer for the 3D re-release of Pete Docter's Monsters Inc. originally from Apple:
Pixar's Monsters Inc, directed by Pete Docter (who went on to direct Pixar's Up), and co-directed by David Silverman (later of The Simpsons Movie) & Lee Unkrich (later of Toy Story 3), was first released in early November of 2001. It is Pixar's fourth movie, following Toy Story 2 released two years prior. The story involves Sulley and Mike Wazowski, scarers for Monsters Inc., whose lives are changed when a little girl named Boo wanders into their world. As listed on this poster, Disney/Pixar's Monsters Inc 3D will arrive in theaters December 19th, a mere five days after The Hobbit lands in theaters in 3D. We'll keep an eye out.
