Just the other day we posted an extended preview of Pixar’s next film, Monsters University. Today the second trailer was released and it sure looks like we’re going to get yet another masterful film from the hopping lamp.
The new trailer gives us a great look at the differences between Mike Wazowski and James P. Sullivan as well as their rivalry within the film. Everything about this prequel has me excite; the setting, comedy, beautiful animation, and the story. Monsters, Inc. is one of my favorite Pixar films so I really can’t wait to see all these characters again (look closely in the trailer and you’ll spot Randall).
Brief synopsis & credits for the film:
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.
Screaming with laughter and oozing with heart, Disney•Pixar’s “Monsters University” is directed by Dan Scanlon (“Cars,” “Mater and the Ghostlight,” “Tracy”), produced by Kori Rae (“Up,” “The Incredibles,” “Monsters, Inc.”) and features music from future Rock-and-Roll-Hall-of-Fame–inductee and award winning composer Randy Newman (“Monsters, Inc.,” “Toy Story 3”).
The film opens in U.S. theaters on June 21, 2013, and will be shown in Disney Digital 3D™ in select theaters. It will also include the Pixar short “The Blue Umbrella”, you can watch a preview here.
Pixar is without a doubt my favorite animation studio so I’ll be there on opening day to see the film, how about you? Let us know in the comments below.
