With Brave opening on Friday to what seems to be only OK reviews (currently at 73% on Rotten Tomatoes), and Cars 2 being a bust, perhaps it is indeed time for Pixar to dig into their vaults and come back with some beloved characters.
Heck, it worked with Toy Story 3, one of the best reviewed Pixar films – if not one of the best reviewed films of 2010.
Thankfully the next Pixar movie will focus on 2 of my favorite characters, Mike and Sully (Billy Crystal and John Goodman reprising their roles) from their 2001 film, Monsters, Inc. In Monsters University, we go back to a simpler time, a time when Mike and Sully were college roommates, staying up late, partying in the dorms, and learning how to produce those screams (and then later, laughs) so necessary to power the city.
The disco ball is an obvious joke, but it just works so well you forgive them.
