How does Pixar do it? The animation studio has an almost pristine track record with their films and has become one of the most trusted brands in all of film. With another film on the way this summer - the 'Monsters Inc.' sequel 'Monsters University' - we set off for Pixar's Emeryville campus to peek inside the hallowed walls, talk to the creators and find out a literal answer to that question. How does Pixar do it?
Although 'Monsters University' reunites much of the original cast of 'Monsters, Inc.,' plenty of new voices have been added to the mix, making this one of the most star-studded Pixar movie to date. Heck, it's DreamWorks-esque how many big names are associated with this movie. The voice actors involved have been slowly revealed over the past few months, but a few more were announced today, including John Krasinski and Nathan Fillion.
'Monsters University,' Pixar's prequel to 'Monsters Inc.,' brings back Billy Crystal's Mike Wazowkski and John Goodman's James P. Sullivan to tell the duo's awkward college stories. But we get to go even further back in time in the brand-new 'Monsters University' trailer to see the moment when little toddler Mike first wanted to attend college. The only downside, for non-Japanese speakers at least, is that the trailer's all in Japanese.
What if two of your favorite Pixar characters were people instead of robots? The answer: they'd be just as adorable.
'Monsters University,' the prequel to the hit Pixar movie 'Monsters, Inc.,' is ready to take us back to where Mike and Sulley first met and learned their scaring techniques. In anticipation of its June 21 premiere, Disney and Pixar have kicked off the viral marketing with an official-looking college website, and now the promotions are continuing with a video message from the Dean.
