Monsters, Inc. Rated "G" by MPAA

(September 7, 2001 - by Pixar's Monsters, Inc. has been given a "G" rating by the Motion Picture Association of America. The "G" rating goes against the norm of animated movies this year, which have mostly been "PG" and "PG-13". With the exception of Shrek, all the other movies underperformed with Final Fantasy being named by USA Today as one of the biggest losers of the summer at the box office. Osmosis Jones was also a major loser as it struggles to reach $15 million.

Earlier this year, Disney (which is distributing Monsters, Inc.) moved the release date for Monsters, Inc. up to November 2 in order to avoid going head to head with Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone.

Pixar is encouraged by early screenings of Monsters, Inc. which has received higher scores than the mega-successful Toy Story 2 when it test screened.

The only "G" rated movie released over the summer was Disney's live action The Princess Diaries which will cross the $100 million mark this weekend to become one of the most successful films of the summer, beating out other high profile movies like A.I.
