‘Monsters University’ Trailer: Go Back to School With Mike and Sulley

Monsters University trailer
Disney-Pixar

Monsters University‘ might not have any superheroes but it’s still one of the movies we can’t wait to see this summer. The prequel to the scary good ‘Monsters, Inc.’, this movie looks at the early years of Mike and Sulley, when they first met as mismatched roommates in college. Today, we’ve got our first extended look at Pixar’s next film with the full ‘Monsters University’ trailer. And, yeah, it’s a lot of fun!

As much as Pixar could ever be in a slump, you could say that their last two films – ‘Cars 2′ and ‘Brave’ – were something of a down few years for the animation studio. ‘Monsters University’ looks like it could be a return to form for Pixar – the kind of movie that looks like it will make a ton of money and be a blast to watch.

The film has previously been described as a ‘Revenge of the Nerds’ style tale with the not-so-scary monsters facing off against the campus tough guys. There’s very much a raucous college spirit here and while it hits at some plot, we don’t get a real sense of what’s driving the film. We’re sure Pixar is trying to keep some plot points under wraps and that’s OK because there’s more than enough to enjoy in this trailer (we particularly enjoyed the snail trying to hurry to class). Speaking of the film’s plot:

Ever since college-bound Mike Wazowski (voice of Billy Crystal) was a little monster, he has dreamed of becoming a Scarer—and he knows better than anyone that the best scarers come from Monsters University (MU). But during his first semester at MU, Mike’s plans are derailed when he crosses paths with hotshot James P. Sullivan, “Sulley” (voice of John Goodman), a natural-born Scarer. The pair’s out-of-control competitive spirit gets them both kicked out of the University’s elite Scare Program. To make matters worse, they realize they will have to work together, along with an odd bunch of misfit monsters, if they ever hope to make things right.

The film hits theaters on June 12 and stars the voices of John Goodman, Billy Crystal, Helen Mirren, Steve Buscemi, Jennifer Tilly, Kelsey Grammer, Frank Oz, Ken Jeong, John Ratzenberger and J.B. Smoove. You can watch the brand new ‘Monsters University’ trailer below.
