New Monsters University Preview
Director Dan Scanlon talks the plot

We still have to wait until the summer to see Pixar’s Monsters, Inc prequel Monsters University. But if you want to learn more about the film, director Dan Scanlon can help, presenting an extended preview below. Be warned, however: there are some hefty chunks of plot outlined here, so if you’re scared of spoilers, this could generate enough screaming to power a toaster.

Monsters University tracks Mike Wazowski (Billy Crystal) and James P. “Sulley” Sullivan (John Goodman) as they attend the prestigious academic institution, hoping to win entry into the respected scaring program. But that’s not such an easy task, as it’s a competitive place…

Although the pair go on to be best friends, they didn’t start out that way. As it turns out, nerdy dreamer Mike and arrogant jock Sulley really didn’t get on in those formative early days, and Monsters University tells how that bond came to be.

We’re hoping for good things from this prequel, which arrives in UK cinemas on July 12.
