The original working title of Pixar’s Brave, which hit theaters this weekend, was The Bear and the Bow. Losing that strong and memorable title for a buzz word is only the first hiccup and portends trouble to come in a pre-production schedule that was plagued by delays and disappointments. The most glaring and possibly damning of which was the outright firing of the screenwriter and first-for-Pixar woman director, Brenda Chapman.

It was only a teaser, so here is my short impression of the Monsters University: Ever since the original film dropped, I’ve been looking forward to a possible sequel. It is set up for a great sequel better than any Pixar film has been since the company’s inception, with the exception of maybe The Incredibles.
So, what we have here is a prequel, which is already disappointing. It is a cute idea to set them in their college years, and I am certain that Pixar will eventually release a quality product, but I’m still disappointed in the direction they decided to take with this film.
