Billy Crystal is set to reprise his voice role as Mike in Monsters Inc 2.
John Goodman, who lent his voice to blue fuzzy monster Sully, is also expected to return for the follow-up, tipped to be a prequel titled Monsters University.
The long-awaited second film in the franchise, scheduled for late 2012, would go back to their days as college students, Disney/Pixar announced at CinemaCon, reported Entertainment Weekly.
"The film is a prequel that tells you a little bit about how [Mike and Sully] first met, attending Monsters University," Dave Hollis, Disney's executive vice president of worldwide distribution, said.
"Obviously everybody knows at this point Mike and Sully are amazing friends - the best of friends - but as it turns out, in this story, that wasn't always the case. From the moment they met at university, they could not stand each other. This story takes you through the ups and downs, and how they overcame their own differences," he added.
