‘Monsters, Inc. 2′ to be Prequel to Original Disney/Pixar Film (Spoiler)

Citing a Disney film catalog distributed to film owners, Disney Central Plaza has reported on the apparent official synopsis for the highly anticipated second installment of the Monsters, Inc. franchise. The official synopsis was seemingly not published, so it is summarized below.

Slated to be released on November 2, 2012, the second film will take us back to before a time when Mike Wazowski was top comedian, before James P. Sullivan was top scarer, even before the buddies joined the MI workforce. In fact it takes us all the way back to school — the University of Fear to be precise.

Disney Shuffles ‘Monsters,’ Kills the ‘Beast’ and Saves the Date for ‘Prom’

Walt Disney Studios made some announcements earlier today regarding its upcoming slate. Fearing sparkling vampires, Mike Wazowski and Sulley will be making their triumphant return to the silver scream in Monsters Inc. 2 a whopping two weeks earlier now on November 2, 2012.

Despite the tremendous buzz and many supporters, it appears that the already-rescheduled Beauty and the Beast 3D may not make it to theaters in the United States after-all as it has been completely removed from the upcoming release slate. Originally expected to be released in 2010 and then in 2011, the special edition of the film is slated for a limited release overseas later this year.
