The final 'Monsters University' trailer is here and it gives us our best look yet at the latest film from Pixar. Although we're still not completely sold on this one (more on that in a bit), a Pixar release is generally a cause for celebration and animation fans will find much to appreciate here.
With all the Pixar sequels in the works, many fans have been left asking why we're not getting an 'Incredibles 2.' Up until this point it's been because writer/director Brad Bird has been reluctant to return to the franchise but now Bird is softening his stance giving hope that a sequel to one of the best superhero movies (seriously!) could be on the way some time soon.
Although there are no plans for a 'Toy Story 4' (yet), Pixar hasn't been shy about utilizing their most iconic characters for short films (see: the 'Toy Story' Toons and the 'Cars' Toons). But now, the latest adventure of Buzz, Woody and the gang will be heading to TV for Pixar's first Halloween special. Titled 'Toy Story of Terror,' was teased by Pixar today, giving us a first look at the project and letting us know where we'd be able to watch it.
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.
