The Monsters, Inc. sequel that never was

Jim Hill has the rundown on Monsters, Inc. 2: Lost in Scaradise, the sequel that was almost, but not quite, made in the mid-2000’s by Disney’s Circle 7 animation studio. Disney’s then-CEO, Michael Eisner, created Circle 7 to make in-house sequels to Pixar films (Disney had the right to do that under its distribution deal with Pixar). The operation was shut down when Disney acquired Pixar in 2006.

The actual Monsters, Inc. 2—a prequel to the original—is the next film on Pixar’s slate after Cars 2, and is scheduled to be released in the U.S. on November 2, 2012.
