This Wednesday, December 19, Pixar's 'Monsters, Inc.' gets the full on 3D treatment and hits theaters nationwide. Though there's no new animated competition for the Holiday dollars this weekend, it doesn't feel as hyped as previous 3D conversions. We're wondering if this is the last big reissue for a while. Regardless, there's a new featurette to talk about the added dimension.

'Monsters University' is Pixar's first foray into the prequel game, which of course focuses on the early days of those beloved scarers Mike Wazowski and James "Sully" Sullivan. We still have about half a year to go before we get to see this surefire hit, but until then we can feast on a couple of new stills that display the cuddly monsters during their college years.
Even if you haven't seen the short film, you surely know the Pixar characters Luxo, Jr. He's the cute little lamp in the Pixar logo before all their movies (initially introduced in the Oscar-winning short, 'Luxo, Jr.'). The short film (which you can watch here) followed two anthropomorphic lamps and their adventures with a bouncy ball. Well now someone has created Luxo in real life and look around to find you, hear sounds, beg for attention and even turn himself back on if you try to turn him off. You gotta see this!
'Monsters University' isn't set to hit theaters until next summer but we've already seen a a trailer and today - with the original 'Monsters, Inc.' set for re-release in 3D next month - we've got the first 'Monsters Inc. 2' poster.
While 'Brave' didn't receive as high reviews as many of us were hoping, the Pixar short that accompanied the film, 'La Luna,' definitely did. In case you don't want to wait to relive the spectacular animation when 'Brave' hits DVD and Blu-ray on November 14, you can watch it in full right here.
Remember that monstrous bear that Princess Merida had to fend off in 'Brave'? Those of you who saw the film already know [SPOILER ALERT] that the creature, named Mor'du, is actually a prince whose selfish ambitions led him to be cursed into this form. Well, it turns out he was interesting enough of a character on which to base an entire 'Brave' spin-off.
The 'Toy Story' Halloween special might keep you waiting until 2013 but if you need your 'Toy Story' fix a little sooner, we've got good news for you. The latest 'Toy Story' short, 'Partysaurus Rex' - which debuted in theaters attached to 'Finding Nemo 3D' - is now online in full and you can watch it here for free.
If you've been dying to see more of 'Monsters Inc. 2'/ 'Monsters University,' fear not -- we've got a whole batch of new photos and a very special (and fully-functional!) college website courtesy of our friends at Pixar to give you a fun peek at the upcoming prequel to 'Monsters, Inc.'
There may not be a 'Toy Story 4' in the near future -- or ever! -- but Pixar is still pumping out fun little shorts featuring our favorite characters, and we're totally okay with that. The next one? 'Toy Story of Terror,' a Halloween-themed TV special that will hit the small screen next year.
It's probably one of the more obvious celebrity look alikes we've ever come across, and yet it's taken us this long to acknowledge it: Our favorite condescending, comedic fashionista from Disney and Pixar's 'The Incredibles' has a real-life twin in the form of Henrietta "Hetty" Lange from 'NCIS: Los Angeles.'
