Pixar releases official logo for MONSTERS UNIVERSITY

Here's a fun fact! MONSTERS, INC. was the very first Pixar film that made me cry. I don't think that MONSTERS UNIVERSITY will have the same effect, but I do think it's going to be a heck of a fun time. Coming out on June 21, 2013 (man, that's a long wait), MONSTERS UNIVERSITY serves as a prequel, filling us in on the backstory of the tremendous friendship between Mike Wazowski and James P. Sullivan.

MONSTERS UNIVERSITY takes us to the way back - college time! Shockingly enough, Mike and Sulley didn't always match up perfectly (shocking! not really!), and their first interactions were not all that fun. MONSTERS UNIVERSITY will show audiences how they "overcame their differences and became the best of friends." Aw, cute. Up top is the official logo for the film, and after the break are some fun facts about the upcoming Disney Digital 3D release.

The film will reunite Billy Crystal and John Goodman in their original roles, and will be directed by Dan Scanlon (CARS). Disney promises that MONSTERS UNIVERSITY will include both "new faces" and "returning favorites." I'd love to see some new monsters, so I am all about this.

For fun trivia, did you know that MONSTERS, INC. was originally released on November 2, 2001? Meaning that its sequel will hit theaters nearly twelve years after its original? Do you know what else that means? I'm getting old, but this Pixar stuff still charms me.

Were you fans of MONSTERS, INC.? Are you excited for MONSTERS UNIVERSITY? Which Pixar film made you cry the most?

About Kate Erbland

At age five, Kate was famous in her first grade class for having seen DIRTY DANCING twelve times (a distinction which was only overshadowed by her other infamous trait of constantly running around with her skirt over her head). While her tastes have turned considerably more refined in the intervening twenty years, Kate still carries a serious torch for dance movies (and for skirt-head). She’s seen every James Bond movie in theaters since 1985 (A VIEW TO A KILL), has never walked out of or passed out during a film (CLOVERFIELD), truly believes movie theater popcorn should be its very own food group, and once told David Gordon Green, “you’re my very favorite director in the whole wide world.” Kate came to Los Angeles for the weather and a writing program at Loyola Marymount University that allowed her to spend weeks on the road, pretending to be Kerouac while drinking a lot of cheap wine. She has stayed in Los Angeles because she can’t imagine living anywhere that doesn’t allow her to tell people, “Tara Reid and I go to the same grocery store.” In her free time, Kate enjoys talking about all things important to various species of the living (including, but not limited to, people, hairless cats, and police ponies), the local Los Angeles music scene, hiking, and telling people to see more movies and read more books.
