I know it isn’t most people’s favorite Pixar, but I’m an unapologetic fan of Monsters Inc. The idea of a sequel though, I’m not entirely crazy about. There’s a fine line between nostalgia for something you love and an unappealing sense of deja vu. This teaser I’m afraid gives me more of the latter. It’s probably mainly grumpiness on my part. I start digging in my heels with these “We’re back! Aren’t you thrilled?” as though I’ve been counting down the days for the return of an old friend, when in fact the further (or earlier) adventures of Mike and Sully never really occurred to me outside of the experience of watching the original.
Check out version #1 after the jump and decide for yourself.
