Pixar Animation’s “Brave” opened with $66.7 million domestically this weekend and is a hit, but I am wondering if “Monsters University” will be? (It comes out in 2013.)
Disney released the trailer last week for the new Monster’s Inc. movie and while it’s cute I am worried that it’s too derivative. (See the trailer above.) Is it “Animal House” with monsters like “Cars 2″ was James Bond but with cars?
“Monster Inc.” is one of our favorite movies because it wasn’t like anything else. The same with “Ratatouille” and the “The Incredibles.”
“Any movie 2” from Pixar makes me feel like they are being lazy and just re-dipping from a successful well.
I know that other movie companies do that all the time, but I expect more from Pixar.
Did you see “Brave” this weekend? (We are waiting until Rose feels better after her surgery.) What did you think of the “Monsters University” trailer? Did you like “Cars 2?” Is Pixar losing it’s magic or is does “Brave” prove otherwise?
