Meet the Students and Faculty of Monsters University!

Pixar Post - Monsters University ID Card

Pixar’s next film, Monsters University (a prequel to 2001’s much beloved Monsters, Inc.), will be in theaters in just a few short months (June 21st, to be exact). In the past few weeks we’ve witnessed an aggressively awesome marketing campaign. Pixar has unveiled a new trailer, an extended preview and viral videos; all of which have served as equal parts refresher as well as reintroduction to the world of Monstropolis. Today, eight new character posters and college IDs were released, providing fans with a detailed look at monsters old and new.

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.

I’m really excited for this prequel and all the promotion for the film so far, how about you? Let us know in the comments below!
