If it's crap ... We'll tell you
Oh man I love Pixar. Seriously, can they do no wrong? Ten movies, countless shorts, all of them of high quality. So why the title? Well I just heard about the announcement of the sequel to Monsters Inc, cleverly titled: Monsters Inc. 2.
Rumours of this movie have been on and off for the past year, and now it has been confirmed and given a release date:
NOVEMBER 16TH, 2012
Woah, woah, woah. Hold on there Pixar. I thought you already had a movie coming out in 2012. Newt. And didn't you have two movies coming out next year? Cars 2 and The Bear and the Bow? Well let me just grab my microscope and do some searching around and...AHA!
Hmm, Newt has been moved to TBA. So methinks that means 2013. The Bear and the Bow is now called Brave.
Up, Brave, Newt. Trend?
Well Brave has been moved to Newt's previous date: June 15th, 2012. Now Cars 2 is the only one coming out next year. So now we have one movie next year, two in 2012, and one in 2013.
Strange, why all the changes in release dates guys? Brave was in the works, and now you push it back a year? And then shove Newt back a year again for Monsters Inc 2?
You stupid monkey! It just means they want to put aside these movies to put all their effort in that movie so it can be another brilliant sequel, like Toy Story 2 was.
That's all well and good. But I want to see new stories. New characters. New worlds. Now there's Toy Story 3 in a few months, Cars 2 next year, and Monsters Inc. 2 the year after. With only one original work coming out in those three years!
Okay, maybe I'm being too paranoid. I would love to think Pixar isn't taking the path of hoping that if they just make sequels to their beloved movies then that'll be enough to please fans like me. I mean, it is good to see they're not justing shoving Monsters Inc 2 among all the other movies, and they are pushing the others a year back so they do get the care they deserve.
I guess it's up in the air now. We'll see it all unfold within three years. But in my opinion, I may flinch a bit if in a year I hear "Pixar has just announced The Incredibles 2 to be released in 2013!"
What do you guys think?
