Yesterday brought a little too much excitement for me to deal with all at once. Hold onto your hair extensions ladies and find yourself something sturdy to lean on because (cue trumpets and dancing monkeys)…
There is going to be a Finding Nemo sequel.
I know. Right? How the creators are ever going to top the “do you speak whale?” scene, the shark’s equivalent of alcoholics anonymous, those adorable surfing baby turtles and Ellen Degeneres as a talking Regal Blue Tang fish, I don’t know. In fact I’d say it’s near impossible but gosh diggity dang I’m thrilled to see them try.
But the excitement doesn’t stop there because (wait for it, wait for it… it’s a good one, I promise!)
There is ALSO going to be a Monsters Inc 2.
Those whacky funsters over at Pixar are going sequel/prequel CRAZY. They are out of control. They can’t get enough of the stuff (and the millions of dollars it will make them).
We’re going to see our favourite furry electric blue friend Sully and the incomparable Mike Wazowski, back on our screens – this time studying hard at Monster’s University.
You can picture them now: Getting boozy with the other frat-boy monsters on campus, smuggling Boo into biology labs in a back pack and punching above their weight at Orientation Week speed-dating with that cute pink girl monster with the 10 eyes that come out of her tentacle hair (she rocks that look).
But wait. There’s more. Because if you are one of the first 100 callers into our telephone hotline in the next FIFTEEN MINUTES then you will also take home a free set of steak knives…. AND Toy Story 4.
For any of you that missed the first three installments of Woody and Buzz then get down to Blockbuster post haste and get your rental on. These are unmissable films. And unlike so many other sequels, they are just getting better with time. Toy Story 3 was unquestionably the most poignant and moving film of 2011. No debates. The game is already won.
