Disney/Pixar have released a new trailer for their highly anticipated prequel to 2005’s Monsters Inc., which is titled, Monsters University. This time we get to see a bit more of the early relationship between Mike (Billy Crystal) and Sully (John Goodman) within the archetypal mismatched buddies at University scenario.
The trailer is excellent and delves further into the plot, while offering up some brilliant laughs, though hopefully plenty have been saved for the actual movie. Based on this trailer, Monsters University definitely seems to be an absolute return to form for Pixar.
Check out the trailer below:
Here’s the synopsis:
Set about 10 years before the events of Monsters, Inc., serious yet intelligent 17-year-oldMichael “Mike” Wazowski (voiced by Billy Crystal) is extremely eager to start college, where he is majoring in scaring. Things don’t go quite as planned, though, when 18-year-oldJames P. “Sulley” Sullivan (voiced by John Goodman) happens to be in the same fraternity as him. Sulley shows to be almost the exact opposite of Mike: playful, all-brawn, and most notably large. He is also majoring in scaring, however, and they soon become enemies in a rivalry that will tear their worlds apart, including going to jail, but ultimately brings them together.
Monsters University is due for release in the US on the 21st June and in the UK on the 12th July 2013.
