Monsters University PosterMonsters University
Director: Dan Scanlon
Cast: Billy Crystal, John Goodman, Steve Buscemi, Helen Mirren, Aubrey Plaza, Nathan Fillion, Bobby Moynihan, Charlie Day, Joel Murray, Sean Hayes, Dave Foley
Walt Disney Pictures | Pixar
Rated G | 110 Minutes
Release Date: June 21, 2013

Directed by Dan Scanlon, Monsters University is a prequel to 2001’s Monsters, Inc that concerns the origins of Michael “Mike” Wazowski (voiced by Billy Crystal) and James P. “Sulley” Sullivan’s (voiced by John Goodman) friendship and professional partnership.

Set 10 years before Monsters Inc., Scanlon’s film is essentially a rehash of 1984’s Revenge of the Nerds with a group of uncool kids who form their own fraternity to compete against a gang of jocks and bullies.

Mike and Sulley are both in the university’s prestigious scaring program but have differing philosophies on the art of terrifying little children. Mike is the quintessential college nerd, devoting 100 percent of his time to studying in his dorm room. Sulley is the prototypical jock, the son of a famous Scarer who coasts through classes thanks to his undeniable natural talent.

As the school year comes to a close, and joyous kids everywhere begin preparing for what’s sure to be the most epicest summer of all times for real real, Pixar has released a “Final Exam” trailer for the upcoming Monsters, Inc. prequel, Monsters University.

All of the trailers have made the movie look like a lot of fun, but this is probably my personal favorite of the bunch. Instead of focusing on the rivalry between a young James P. Sullivan (John Goodman) and Mike Wazowski (Billy Crystal), instead it focuses more on Mike and his lifelong determination to beat the odds and become a scarer.

Check out the new trailer for Monsters University below now!

‘Monsters University’ Trailer: An Education In Kickstarting Pixar’s Heart

Monsters University

Before Mike and Sulley revolutionized the way they powered their world in Monsters Inc., they were roommates hellbent on making each other’s college experience a miserable one. This is what we get to see in the first few seconds of the trailer for Monsters University, which can bring up some memories for those who had to go through the dreams or traumas of sharing a dorm with a person for the next few months.

Check out the newest trailer for Monsters University here below.

The teaser trailer didn’t show us a whole in terms of plot; in fact, the entire trailer was sequestered in the dorm. This newest trailer is much more bright and colorful, mirroring Mike’s glee as he sets foot to become a full-fledged scarer. But it wouldn’t be a college experience without a few rivalries (both in the dorm and on the football field) and prank pulling. It seems like Monsters University can be a whole lot of fun since it is going back to characters we know.

Pixar's The Blue Umbrella

Pixar’s animated shorts are nothing short of splendid whimsical fun for everyone. But underneath all of that is a creative team hoping to make their dreams come true and make it big. These animated shorts showcase a lot of directing and animating talents. Like all of the Pixar features before them, Monsters University will have a short of its own that will lead into the big feature. The short is called The Blue Umbrella and it comes from technical artist Saschka Unseld.

Well we have a short clip here below short courtesy of the people over at the Wall Street Journal. Check it out.

In The Blue Umbrella, it looks like the Pixar team is experimenting with photorealistic technology, which begs the question, what exactly do the people have in store for us if Blue Umbrella looks this good. At first I thought I was looking at a live-action clip. The rain and texture of the umbrellas look all too real to be animation.
