Watch The Trailer For The Abandoned Monsters Inc. Sequel Lost In Scaradise

Next year will see the long awaited sequel to one of the best movies Pixar ever made: Monsters Inc. But while the project was officially announced just last April, this isn't the first time that a Monsters Inc 2 has been in the works. Back in 2004 it looked as though Disney and Pixar were going to split ways, so Disney created a sister studio called Circle 7 that would be responsible for only making sequels to Pixar movies that they retained the rights to. The two companies, of course, eventually worked everything out and the work that Circle 7 did in the interim was scrapped (part of the new deal between the studios was that only Pixar employees would work on Pixar movies). One of said scraped projects was called Monsters, Inc. 2: Lost in Scaradise, and now a trailer made from abandoned concept art has arrived online.

Posted on a blogspot account created by Bob Hilgenberg and Rob Muir, the screenwriters for the project, the story would have seen everyone's favorite monsters, Mike and Sully, enter the real world as they search for Boo, who apparently moved. We may never know exactly how things would have panned out for the duo and what kind of scrapes they might have gotten themselves into, but this is a nice, well-illustrated little taste.

Check it out below.
