Monsters IncSully and Mike are returning for some more "Monsters, Inc." excitement, but this time they're going to college.

Disney revealed at CinemaCon that they're planning a new movie due out in 2012 called "Monsters University," which will tell the origin story of these two best buds back when they were enemies at the University of Fear. It's the first we've heard of a planned "Monsters, Inc." follow-up since 2008, and will make it Disney's second Pixar film out next year opposite "Brave."

Instead of kudos, Docter and his next project are making headlines today: a sequel to his first Pixar feature, “Monsters Inc.” Speculative rumors of a “Monsters Inc. 2” have been floating around for awhile, but we're now one step closer to official confirmation thanks to Disney expert Jim Hill.

In his coverage of Licensing International Expo 2009, Hill reports that licensing buyers were told of the sequel, though they were also apparently supposed to keep the news a secret.

In the moment, those ideas are being filtered into a “Monsters, Inc” roller-coaster at the Walt Disney Resorts, which should open in a couple of years. Read More...
