It's a testament to Pixar's attention to story, character, and animated craft that seeing such a familiar movie in 3D is pretty appealing. The trailer is basically a reminder of just how good Monsters, Inc. is and just how enjoyable hanging out with Mike and Sully can be.
Next summer, we can hang out with the duo before they were a duo, as Pixar's next movie is the prequel Monsters University, in which Mike and Sully are rivals in college, but must learn to work together when they end up pledging the same frat and indulging in some very Revenge of the Nerds-esque shenanigans.
This year, though, it's all about going back to Monstropolis for a familiar adventure. Check out the Monsters, Inc. re-release trailer right here or in high definition at Apple, where it debuted today.
Like the first film, next year's sequel will again have John Goodman and Billy Crystal voicing Mike and Sully, along with Steve Buscemi as Randall Boggs. Pete Docter co-directed Monsters, Inc. with David Silverman and Lee Unkrich, who went on to helm Toy Story 3 and The Simpsons Movie, respectively. The sequel, meanwhile, is directed by Dan Scanlon, a storyboard artist who directed the Cars short Mater and the Ghostlight.
Pick up your Rogue 3D Eyewear for the 3D re-release of Monsters, Inc. on December 19th, and use your stylish 3D glasses all over again when Monsters University hits theaters on June 21st of next year.
