Disney had previously announced that, after the success of The Lion King 3D, it would be re-releasing several more films from its catalogue of animated features, two of these being from the library of beloved Pixar films. Finding Nemo 3D is set to arrive in September this year, and Monsters, Inc. 3D was scheduled for release in January 2013, but has now reportedly been moved up to December of 2012!
The 3D re-release of the original Monsters will help set the stage and excitement for its prequel Monsters University, which will hit theaters six months later. I am excited to relive the experience of watching the original 2001 film in theaters (this time in the third-dimension) as Monsters, Inc. is one of my favorite Pixar films, and one of my all-time favorite movies overall.
Monsters, Inc. 3D hits theaters on December 19, 2012, just in time for this year's holiday season!
