Also, while we're at it, hooray for Pixar, because Monsters University looks like the movie that'll re-establish the studio's follow-up bona fides after the critical train wreck that was Cars 2. To begin with, the premise was established organically; rather than following up on the adventures of Mike (Billy Crystal) and Sulley (John Goodman) after the closing curtain of Monsters, Inc. -- and trying to send them on a new, sequelriffic adventure -- it capitalizes on the duo's easy chemistry by focusing on how they met.

'Brave' Trailer: Pixar Unveils Long Look At Future Blockbuster

"Brave" does something that no Pixar movie has done before: put a female character front and center. Princess Merida in "Brave" (voiced by "Boardwalk Empire" scene stealer Kelly Macdonald) is unlike normal Disney princesses: she's got a lilting Irish brogue, is Katniss Everdeen-y with a bow and arrow, and has no interest in finding Prince Charming -- unless Prince Charming is the key to unlocking a "beastly curse" that threatens her kingdom.
