Monsters Inc 2 gets new title and release date

Walt Disney Pictures has announced the new title for the sequel to Pixar’s brilliant 2001 animated classic Monsters Inc. They’re calling it Monsters University.

As you can probably guess from the title the movie is set to be a prequel, which will focus on Mike and Sully’s college days, their early encounters and their budding friendship. I imagine there’ll be some teething problems with their bromance.

No word yet on the return of Billy Crystal and John Goodman on voice duty, but you can pretty much guarantee their involvement.

Monsters University is due to be released on the 2nd of November 2012.
