Monsters Inc 2 Announced to Release at 2012

Pixar's Monsters Inc. 2 will come out of the closet in 3D on Nov. 16, 2012, Walt Disney Pictures announced but one thing absent from the announcement was any mention of a writer or director.

Marking Pixar's fourth sequel following Toy Story 2, Toy Story 3 and Cars 2, Monsters Inc. 2 will mirror the holiday launch of its predecessor, only it won't open as early due to DreamWorks Animation's The Guardians (working title) occupying the Nov. 2, 2012, slot.

The first Monsters, Inc. was released in 2001 and featured the voice talents of Billy Crystal, John Goodman and Mary Gibbs. Monsters Inc grossed $525 million worldwide and also provided cinemas with the CUTEST character ever seen on screen little Boo, who was voiced by Pixar story artist Rob Gibbs’ 2-year-old daughter Mary.

Pixar had a smashing success with Toy Story 2 in 1999, Toy Story 3 appears poised to continue that trend, and Monsters Inc. 2 should have similar "return-of-old-friends" appeal.
