First Details On “Monsters Inc.” Prequel

Disney Pictures have revealed that “Monsters University” is the official title of their upcoming follow-up to 2001’s “Monsters Inc.”.

In unexpected news, the film is said to be a prequel rather than the sequel many expected. No cast has yet been confirmed, though Billy Crystal, John Goodman and Steve Buscemi are expected to reprise their roles.

Plot details are being kept under wraps, but the title fits an earlier rumored concept that it will show how Mike Wazowski and James P. Sullivan become best friends in college, at the University of Fear, after initially starting out as enemies.

The film is currently targeting a 2012 release.
