Pixar have officially announced the title for their new Monsters, Inc. movie, revealing it will be called Monsters University.

Making the announcement at the ongoing CinemaCon, the studio would unveil nothing further about the movie other than its natty new moniker.

Rumours about the plot, however, precede them. Talk on the street is that Monsters University will be a prequel rather than a sequel.

The rumoured plot would show how monsters Mike Wazowski (voiced by Billy Crystal) and James P. Sullivan (voiced by John Goodman) wind up as best friends at the University of Fear, after starting out as enemies.

Though prequels can generally be a bit of a pain, there’s no doubt that Pixar are world-leaders in movie quality – we’re sure they can pull off another stellar follow-up.

Monsters University opens 2 November, 2012.
