Sequels are tricky things. With a few notable exceptions, news of a sequel is often met with snide laughs and low expectations (especially when it comes to anything animated). But we're not so quick to laugh at Pixar's latest announcement: a slew of upcoming sequels to Cars, Toy Storyand Monsters, Inc.
The seemingly infallible animation studio let the secret slip at a trade show recently, and now, countless educated adults have transformed into joyous, gleeful two-year-olds at the news: Monsters, Inc. 2 is now all systems go, joining Cars 2 and Toy Story 3 in Pixar's pack of upcoming sequels. While we don't know much, besides the fact that original Monsters, Inc. director Pete Docter will be behind the wheel, we do know that Pixar's golden touch is enough to let the negative sequel connotations slide for the time being.
