Converting a CG Animated movie to three dimensions is relatively easy, which is why - at least it seems - that we're getting almost all of the Pixar movies converted to 3D (we've yet to hear about 'A Bug's Life'). Though 'Finding Nemo' is due out next week, 'Monsters Inc.' is quick on its heels with a December release. And now there's a trailer and poster.

All of what we know about 'Monsters Inc. 2' (aka 'Monsters University') was that it was actually a prequel to 'Monsters Inc.' and we would see Sully and Mike back in college. But now - thanks to star Billy Crystal - we have some exact details on the 'Monsters Inc. 2' plot.
Though Pixar has yet to formally announce 'Finding Nemo 2,' the animation studio is quietly working hard behind-the-scenes to prep for the upcoming sequel. Director Andrew Stanton recently signed a deal to return and now come reports the Ellen DeGeneres is in talks to once again voice the forgetful fish Dory.
Pixar has released a clip from their latest 'Toy Story' short, 'Partysaurus Rex,' which is set to premiere with 'Finding Nemo' when that film is re-released in 3D next month. Let's get this party(saurus) started!
Those who can't wait to see the 3D re-release of Disney and Pixar's 'Monsters, Inc.' are in for a special treat. The studio has moved the release date up from January 18, 2013, to December 19, 2012 -- just in time for Christmas.
'Finding Nemo 2' has been rumored for some time now and now it looks as if it's officially happening with Andrew Stanton - who directed the original - returning for the sequel.
Part of the fun of watching new Pixar films lies in spotting the traditional Easter eggs hidden by animators … and ‘Brave’ is no different. Were you able to see the infamous Pizza Planet truck in Merida’s kingdom? How about the standard tease for Pixar’s next movie, in this case ‘Monsters University?’ They’re both in there, and we’ll tell you where.
Pixar once again has another hit on their hands with 'Brave,' and this cool video shows an aspect of animation that usually goes ignored by the media and fans -- sound design.
There is likelihood, or at least a possibility - that there will be a 'Brave 2.' The Pixar movie is a success, and while it would be nice for the wholly original tale to inspire more films not based on a pre-existing work, the truth is that it will sooner spin-off material related to itself, whether in the form of features, shorts or a television series. Hardcore Pixar fans may continue wishing for ‘Incredibles 2', but mainstream audiences with their short memories might be more easily sold on a return to the lush animated world of 10th century Scotland. And Disney, surely surprised by the film’s positive reception from boys, no longer has to fear the property is solely for the less-preferred female demographic.
As you no doubt obviously know, Pixar likes to hide a lot of things in their movies. Whether it's the Pizza Planet truck (which is in 'Brave' this weekend if you keep your eyes open!) or hidden characters from previous or upcoming movies, there are...
