The summer blockbuster season is here! “Media Services at the Movies” will look at what big movie is coming out this week, then offer a few movies like it from our collection.
Who among us have never, at least once, loved a Pixar film? The Disney-owned studio has nearly two decades of bona fide classics under its belt, a legacy that will hopefully expand with Friday’s release of Monsters University. Though Pixar rarely tackles non-Toy Story sequels, Monsters University looks to begin a new trend of continuing beloved movies from years past; a Finding Nemo follow-up is also in the works.
It’s understandable that Pixar would want to capitalize on the success of its biggest properties, but the studio’s recently spotty track record raises cause for skepticism about whether this is the right time to start franchising its history.
With that said, this week is a great time to re-watch your Pixar favorites.
