Monsters University is an 2013 American 3D computer-animated comedy film produced by Pixar Animation Studios and released by Walt Disney Pictures. Dan Scanlon is the director and Kori Rae is the producer. It is the fourteenth film produced by Pixar and the prequel to 2001′s Monsters, Inc. Plans for a second Monsters, Inc. film have existed since 2005. Following disagreements between then-Disney CEO Michael Eisner and Pixar CEO Steve Jobs, Disney (who at the time owned the rights to make sequels to all of Pixar’s films up to Cars) announced that a sequel to Monsters, Inc. would be made by Circle 7 Animation. However, Disney’s change of management in late 2005 (which saw Eisner replaced by his lieutenant Robert Iger) led to renewed negotiations with Pixar, and in early 2006 Disney announced that they had purchased the studio. The Disney-owned sequel rights were then transferred to Pixar, leading to the cancellation of Rob Muir and Bob Hilgenberg’s version of the film and the subsequent closure of Circle 7.
