If it's crap ... We'll tell you
At this year's CinemaCon (formerly ShoWest) - the official convention National Association of Theater Owners (NATO) - Disney showered the audience with footage and news on some upcoming films:
Jason Segel and Amy Adams presented footage for their film 'The Muppets'. During the presentation, Segel (who co-wrote, produced, and stars in the film) expressed his childhood love of the Muppets as well as revealing the iconic Henson puppets as his first comedic influence. The film will follow Segel and his Muppet roommate Walter as they attempt to reunite the rest of the once-famous Muppets who are now scattered across the world (Fozzy Bear is working in Reno, singing old Muppet songs while Miss Piggy is enjoying her time in Paris, etc).
The film is said to be similar in tone to their recent (and extremely popular) YouTube series.
Also during Disney's presentation, they revealed that the sequel to their 2001 hit 'Monsters Inc.' will actually be a prequel titled 'Monsters University' and will tell the story of Mike and Sully in their early college days as they meet and form their friendship. Both John Goodman and Billy Crystal will be returning to reprise their roles, as well as Steve Buscemi, which means we will be seeing the chameleon-like Randall as well. This puts to bed multiple rumors that the sequel would revolve around an older Boo (including her supposed "cameo" in 'Toy Story 3'), or that it would be about Mike and Sully being trapped in the human world. Although, with Disney/Pixar's new focus on sequels to it's beloved properties, there's still a chance we may see either or both in future installments.
