Searching the internet for news on Monsters, Inc 2 I found this post on KillerMovies.com:
The story picks up twenty years later. Boo is all grown up, and has a family of her own. She runs a toy company that makes stuffed animals. One night, one of the monsters comes into her little girls room to do their normal comedy routine, and sees a stuffed toy of Sullivan (which Boo made from her childhood memories). He reports back to Sully what he found, and he goes through the door to see for himself.
When he enters the room, grown up Boo is asleep on her daughter’s bed, and groggily awakes just long enough to see “Kitty?” Sully jumps back into the closet, and runs off the laugh-floor, leaving the door “hot”.
She follows him in, only to find herself in the plant. She looks around thinking, “This place looks familiar.”
I quite like this idea, bringing it back to the original with the next generation of children makes sense. However, this rumour was soon denied by someone in the know with this post:
Actually all this is incorrect – the OP is a hacker wanting to be creative and wanting some attention. I have direct knowledge of the situation (you’ll just have to trust me). “Monsters Inc. 2”, as all Pixar movies, was addressed in the upper levels of Pixar creative and executive management twice – once in the summer of 2004 and re-touched again in the Spring of 2006. There were two story lines that were considered – one was involving Boo just a few days after Monsters Inc went on-line with the laughter as energy switchover – a more traditional approach. The other story line was more “out there” – a prequel to Monsters Inc. – it involved how the monsters discovered human child screaming energy thing came to be. No Sully and no Mike, and certainly no Boo – a young Roz was mentioned as playing a role, however. Both of these story lines were scratched, as creatively neither could touch the “magic” or originality of the original, and consequently all efforts to build a story for “Monsters Inc 2” were abandoned by summer ’06 as I recall. They felt there was a risk in creating Monsters Inc 2 that other Pixar movies (Incredibles & Toy Story) don’t have – meaning there’s is a built in story line that allows for further story telling. Monsters Inc didn’t have that story telling continuum – it ran its course. No link. No way to verify this, except if Pete decided to speak. Take it or leave it.
Since this post it has come out that the likeliness of there being a Monsters, Inc 2 film is getting higher and is due out in 2012 if IMDB.com is to be believed!
On July 29th this year Disney Enterprises, Inc registered Monsters2.com and this sent the rumour mill into over-drive! But in realty this could be just stop someone else registering the domain rather than conclusive proof that the sequel to Monsters, Inc. is being made.
I’m going to add some more fuel to the fire by suggesting that the release of Monsters, Inc.: Laugh Factory #1 comic this past Wednesday is to get the franchise back into the public eye before releasing news that yes, Monsters, Inc 2 is going ahead!
Add in the recent release of Monsters, Inc. on Blu-ray on July 27th and the profile of the franchise is being boosted a lot within a 3 week period.
Monsters, Inc. is my favourite of the Disney Pixar films so a sequel is given the thumbs up by me.
