"Originally, Boo was actually going to return in the second Monsters, Inc. film (which was then supposed to take place ten years after the original rather than before it) as a teenager. In this film, Sulley and Mike, while trying to celebrate her birthday find out that Boo and her family have already moved to a different house when they find an old woman sleeping in what was once her room one day, causing the two monsters to travel into the human world to look for her new house. Unfortunately, the two monsters start to forget how to get back to their world, and to make matters worse, Boo doesn't even remember them anymore since teens and adults do not believe in monsters, nor does think they're funny, and the only way to get back is to try to make her laugh again. The reason why this sequel was scrapped in the first place was because John Lasseter thought that the final shot of the first was just too heartwarming to be continued"Would this have worked better as a continuation to Monster's Inc?

>>106457453Why the fuck is this world so long in KH3? I’ve yet to find Boo’s door and I’ve long stopped caring.
I'm kind of with him; the ending of the first worked well and the second story as a completely new story worked well. I'd much rather have its unique plot than yet another "there and back again journey" cartoon movie. Frankly, though I love Sulley-Mike interactions, the characters just don't seem fit for it.
>>106457472The mouse wants money.
>>106457453Just play Kingdom Hearts 3 and see
>>106457453no source and sounds like bullshit
>>106457453The ending we got was the best one possible. Never second guess.
That plot sounds full of holes. Boo doesn't remember them, which implies they didn't keep in touch, but they just randomly decide to visit for her birthday 10 years later? Why didn't they do it the 9 previous years?
>>106457453Not really but Monsters U was still a bad idea. Just leave things standalone.
A proper sequel for Monsters Inc, as in takes place after the first film, should probably focus on the Monster world transitioning from Scare-based Fuel to Laughter-based fuel.While it would be a relatively easy shift since it seems the current machinery is already compatible, you still have to deal with all the scarers possibly losing their job entirely, the University having to deal with a dead subject, and the backlash these sudden changes cause. We have movies about how important it is to find better energy sources, but how about one where we look into how we'd actually make the change?
>>106457453I don't want to see any fucking teeanger Boo porn anyway
>>106457502>the second story as a completely new story worked wellA long dated Animal House knockoff for kids worked well?
>>106457976She’s finally legal
>>106457453It would have been weird to leave the monster world, though. I don't think that would work.Also the plot sounds interesting and exciting at first glance, but it kind of falls apart if you think about it for too long. They need to make her ... laugh? There's not a lot of tension there. Push comes to shove and she can just put on a John Mulaney special. Sounds more ambitious and more creative than the prequel that we got but idk if the risk would have paid off..
>>106457453That sounds shit. Glad we got the sequel instead. Dunno what they could do for a sequel. Maybe make it about how switching to laughter causes an upheaval of the monster world? I mean shit you're flipping everything monsters have always aspired to be. There's got to be traditionalists and scares fighting the change to laughter. Bound to cause a lot of chaos even if the energy crisis is solved. And maybe Randall could come back and have a redemption arc or some shit. Eh, probably best to leave the property alone after MU anyway.
Think those Boom comics we got that acted like a continuation were for the best.
Friendly reminder we're gonna get a Monsters Inc. show in Disney+
>>106458628There there, anon. None of us do.None of us do...
>>106457453>teens and adults do not believe in monstersoh but I do, for I live amongst them
>>106460450that's deep anon
>>106457490All the KH3 worlds overstay their welcome but I found Monsters Inc to be the best world. It's the closests we'll ever get to a world resembling something from KH2 in that game.
>>106457453>forget how to get back to their worldYou... go through a closet door. It's not hard.
>>106459382>None of us do...Speak for yourself faggot
>>106457453Wow this Lasseter sounds like /ourguy/!
>>106459306Randall was deep fried and devoured by white trash
>>106460687I’ll play devil’s advocate, you could only go theough the door if the monster world had it activated.If anything it might be “We’re stuck here for a week until they start making kids laugh in rural Kentucky again.”
>>106461161You’re probably onto something.
>>106461017Kingdom Hearts 3 showed that he escaped the hillbillies.
>>106461309This bitch has some bad fuckin parents
>>106457453>worse, Boo doesn't even remember them anymore since teens and adults do not believe in monsters, nor does think they're funny, and the only way to get back is to try to make her laugh again. I’m with Lasseter on this one, that sounds like it would have retroactively ruined the ending of the first film.
>>106459306I could see something like this as an allegory about the dichotomy between drama and comedy, edgedark and quipquip, etc.>>106460687>>106461161>>106461309Remember when Sully and Mike were shoved into the Himalayas?
>>106457757Buddy, this is old news,http://mentalfloss.com/article/51307/6-unproduced-pixar-films-and-sequels
kind of a shitty plot desu, hope this isn't the setup for the animated series, which also happens too involve boo.
>>106457453>Unfortunately, the two monsters start to forget how to get back to their worldWait...what?!?
>>106457453Yes >>106460645Playing KH2 now and it’s fucking Kino, but I’m trying to grind a bit to get a decent level for sepheroth
I liked Monsters University.
>>106463297So did I. Pleasant surprise given I'm usually not one for prequels.
>>106457453You do know that KH3 was actually canon? I just to believe that in that monster’s verse they actually succeeded in collecting a lot of laughter. Minus the boss fight at the end, and Randel was actually put back inside the door he was once inside and Sora just actually locked it for good. It’s canon and no one is going to tell me other wise.
>>106457453No. When you have a self contained story arc and you’re insistent on pumping out more movies for the shekels it’s better off to do a prequel or anthology or something akin to that rather than bastardize and cheapen the events of the first.See:>Toy Story>Ralph Breaks the Internet>Finding Dory>Incredibles 2>Cars>countless live action or non CG animated sequels I can’t name off the top of my head
>>106457453Now that the fat bastard's out of the picture, I wouldn't mind coming back for an actual sequel.
>>106461309>using the snakes instead of fingersCute.
>>106463297>>106463325It was pretty good because it didn't rely on its relation to the original
>>106457453>they find an old woman sleeping in what was once her room one dayThe twist is that she was the old woman all along and time moved differently in the humanverse.
YOU SEE THAT CLOCK
>>106457453>The reason why this sequel was scrapped in the first place was because John Lasseter thought that the final shot of the first was just too heartwarming to be continuedThat's not true. The script is real but this part is bullshit.Here is what really happened: Around 2004, Disney wanted Pixar to make some cheapquels, Pixar said no and cut all ties to Disney. The mouse became angry and realized they could make those cheapquels by their own because they had the rights to all Pixar movies right until The Incredibles, so they created a new studio called Circle 7 made to just create Pixar cheapquels. At the end Bob iger became CEO and managed to just buy Pixar altogether. Circle 7 was closed and all planned sequels were """scrapped""" (Toy Story 3, Finding Nemo 2 and this movie).
>>1064593663 was the best one in the series, anon. What are you smoking?
The Boom comics already did a sequel.
