Following news that the Monsters Inc. prequel would be called Monsters University Disney has decided to push the release date back from November 2012 to June 13, 2013. The movie will follow the origins of Mike and Sully’s relationship all the way back to their time at the University of Fear, where at first they were enemies before becoming the bestest of friends.
While no casting has been confirmed, Billy Crystal and John Goodman are likely returning to voice Mike and Sully. Dan Scanlon will direct, having previously worked as a story artist on Cars and Toy Story 3. He also directed the Cars-related short Mater and the Ghostlight.
