First Look at Official Poster for Pixar's 'Monsters Inc' 3D Re-Release
There's quite a bit of classic Pixar fun coming our way. Not only do we know there's a Finding Nemo sequel in the works, but they're re-releasing Finding Nemo in 3D in mid-September (trailer). Quickly following, Disney will be putting out Monsters Inc in 3D as well, getting released in December (instead of January), a good six months before we get to see Pixar's new feature film, Monsters University. Which, as we already know (and have seen teasers for), is a prequel to Monsters Inc. Tipped via The Pixar Times, linking all the way back to MoviePosters.com, they've got the first poster for Monsters Inc 3D featuring Mike Wazowski.
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.
Pixar is not the same as they were before, they are heading off the wrong track now with their films and after the horrendous Cars 2 failure they should learn a little bit more about originality. Even the story of Brave was not even original at all. It saddens me my favorite studio from my childhood is going down to a new low. I guess all the 3D releases are just to pay off their own debt from Cars 2 cause I don't think all their merchandising would cover that amount.

Cars 2 actually made 3x its budget back ($200 million budget versus $599 million box office). Yes, the movie was terrible, but it did not leave any debt.

Cars 2 did not leave any debt. Yes, it was terrible, but it made over $599 million versus a $200 million budget.

Cars 2 was a bad movie. Brave was mediocre in every definition. Monsters Inc. is most likely going to be "unnecessary." Finding Nemo 2 is most likely going to be "unnecessary." And re-releases, re-releases, re-releases all over the radar! Pixar is starting to behave like their parent corporation. La$$eter needs to collect new talent, fresh blood ( Brenda Chapman was a good choice, but we know what he did with her!)

Monsters U, stop hating and get your facts right!

The Most Anticipated Pixar Movie for years has been The Incredibles 2, they really need to make a sequel for that movie!

Who fucking cares about 3D? God Pixar have fallen. Lasseter has become another Disney crony, scared of change, content with complacency.

Hey, at least we have Laika to pick up the slack.

I'm surprised it wasn't just a pile of greenbacks.

Loved Monster's Inc and now it's going to be in 3D - Yes. Watching 3D on my 82" Mitsubishi 3D DLT blows the theatre's away - it's incredible.
