Monsters, Inc. follow-up Monsters University has landed a director in Pixar stalwart Dan Scanlon.
Pixar pres John Lasseter has confirmed that Scanlon will be helming the film, saying:
“Yes! Dan Scanlon is directing Monsters University! We’re very excited about it. Kori Rae is producing.”
Previously, Scanlon worked as a writer on Cars, and co-directed the short Mater And The Ghostlight.
If those Cars credentials are scaring you, rest easy – Scanlon also worked as story artist on Toy Story 3 and produced Up.
Both Billy Crystal and John Goodman will return for Monsters University, which is being touted as a prequel to Monsters, Inc. that follows Mike and Sully as rivals in college.
Monsters University opens November 2012.
