"Monsters, Inc." is one of Pixar's successful animation feature films garnering generally positive reviews and pulling in over $525.4 million worldwide. Following the fact that both "Toy Story" and "Cars" are getting a sequel treatment with "Toy Story 3" and "Cars 2" respectively, one thing left to do for Pixar is to develop its sequel and it seems that it is indeed what the filmmakers have in mind.
Contrary to Brad Bird's earlier remark that Pixar were not in the sequel business, director Peter Docter hinted that the filmmakers behind "Monsters, Inc." have some thought about the possible sequel, "Monsters, Inc. 2". Revealing the info to MTV News at the 2008 San Diego Comic Con, the script writer of "WALL-E" confessed, "We've thought about it. We've got a couple ideas." Still, Docter remains mum about further details on the sequel story.
Released on November 2, 2001, "Monsters, Inc." centers its story on the #1 scarer at Monstropolis' power company, James P. "Sulley" Sullivan (John Goodman) and his partner Mike Wazowski (Billy Crystal). Being role models to the others on the world of monsters, the two get into trouble when a human toddler accidentally comes into their world. Having to avoid problems with the higher authorities, they now have to find a way home for the toddler.
