Monsters University Gets A Teaser
Mike Wazowski gets his disco on...

20 June 2012  |  Written by Phil de Semlyen

We all know that story is king at Pixar. Well, judging by the new Monsters University teaser, they've struck gold again with the follow-up to their beloved 2001 monster mash. After all, who doesn't want to see a less-than-friendly Mike and Sully experience the highs and lows of college life on their way to fully-fledged monster status?

Good news then. There is not one, but four new teasers to get your teeth into, each with a slightly different Billy Crystal riff. Well, it has been 11 years...

 

College has been mined for comedy gold since before the days of Animal House and Porkies, but we cannot wait to see what Pixar come up with. Question is: where will John Ratzenberger pop up? Is there an exchange programme for (pre)Abominable Snowmen?

 

Director Mike Scanlon, himself a graduate from animated shorts and the Cars art department, has reassembled Crystal, John Goodman and Steve Buscemi for the long-awaited prequel.

Click on the links for the other Crystal improvs:  "My homework ate my dog"; "My pony made the dance lessons"; and one more that isn't currently playing for us. Monsters University arrives Stateside on June 21, 2013.

I predict this movie to have atleast 15minutes worth of decent comic amusement while the rest is going to consist of "why did they make this?". Hope i'm wrong. ow can you "predict" anything from a not even 2 minute long (very funny) trailer, a year before the film is released??? Come on, Iits Pixar, have a little faith! ecause its a prediction.If I want to predic More

Part of me wanted to see Mike as the popular guy on campus and Sully as the geek who isn't as popular (would make sense as Sully is the more successful one in the first job) but this still looks great. More
