A sequel to the film, with the working title of Monsters, Inc. 2, was announced in April 2010 and was expected to be released on November 16, 2012 in the US. Lee Unkrich hinted at making a sequel in the Filmmakers Roundtable on the Monsters, Inc. Blu-ray. It was then announced that Disney had moved the film's release date to November 2, 2012 to avoid competition with The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn: Part 2. Pete Docter will not be returning as director. He is said to be working on a "secret project."
