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.
