Did you know that Disney * Pixar created a prequeal to the smash hit Monsters, Inc.? All of your favorites are back!
The new film, Monsters University, explores what life was like for the characters while they were in college.
Mike Wazowski and James P. Sullivan are an inseparable pair, but that wasn’t always the case. From the moment these two mismatched monsters met they couldn’t stand each other. “Monsters University” unlocks the door to how Mike and Sulley overcame their differences and became the best of friends.
Screaming with laughter and fun, “Monsters University” is directed by Dan Scanlon (“Cars,” “Mater and the Ghostlight,” “Tracy”) and produced by Kori Rae (“Up,” “The Incredibles,” “Monsters, Inc.”). The film opens in U.S. theaters on June 21, 2013, and will be shown in Disney Digital 3D™ in select theaters.
The movie stars the voice talents of Billy Crystal (Mike Wazowski), John Goodman (James P. Sullivan), Dave Foley, Julia Sweeney and Steve Buscemi. It’s set to be released on June 21, 2013.
Here are some interesting little tid bits about the film.
Monsters, Inc., originally released on November 2, 2001, was nominated for four Oscars: Best Animated Feature Film, Best Original Score, Best Sound Editing and Best Original Song—“If I Didn’t Have You,” for which it won.
Monsters University will hit U.S. theaters nearly 12 years after the Monsters, Inc. theatrical debut.
Monsters University features a host of new faces and a few returning favorites from Monsters, Inc.
Check out this fun clip from the film. I have to say that it looks really good. Sometimes sequeal/prequels are not as good as the original. I think one looks like it could be close. Of course there are some sequeals/prequels that are actually better than the originals too.
