"Monsters, Inc" sequel announced

It took Pixar to pull me out of my recent blog-stupor (if only Wendy's blog were so lucky). This news shouldn't come as a huge surprise, seeing as how Disney/Pixar have already announced sequels to Toy Story and Cars, but it was finally made official that Monsters, Inc., the sweet comedy from 2001, will finally get a sequel in the winter of 2012 (assuming the world hasn't come to an end by then...).

It's funny that this news was released today, as it was just yesterday that I pulled the Monsters, Inc. DVD out of the back of our cabinet so that we could introduce Lily to it for an upcoming movie night. Some might complain that they'd rather see an original Pixar movie rather than another sequel (will be the third Pixar sequel in as many years), but sounds like the plan is for Pixar to produce both in a calendar year, so everyone wins. Can't wait!
