Monsters-University-UK-PosterPixar are soon to make their anticipated return to the big screen this summer with the release of Monsters University, the first prequel from the beloved animation house.

The last trailer we saw landed a few weeks back, and gave us another great look at the upcoming animated movie. And now Pixar have released the final US trailer, with just three weeks left to go before it hits across the Atlantic.

Mike Wazowski and James P. Sullivan are an inseparable pair, but that wasn’t always the case. From the moment these two mismatched monsters met they couldn’t stand each other. “MonstersUniversity” unlocks the door to how Mike and Sulley overcame their differences and became the best of friends.

Screaming with laughter and fun, “MonstersUniversity” is directed by Dan Scanlon (“Cars,” “Mater and the Ghostlight,” “Tracy”) and produced by Kori Rae (“Up,” “The Incredibles,” “Monsters, Inc.”).

John Goodman and Billy Crystal are naturally reprising their leading roles. And they’re joined by a terrific voice cast, led by Steve Buscemi, Joel Murray, Sean Hayes, Dave Foley, Peter Sohn, Nathan Fillion, Aubrey Plaza, John Krasinski, Charlie Day, Kelsey Grammar, Frank Oz, Tyler Labine, Bonnie Hunt, Ken Jeong, Rob Riggle, Ricky Gervais, J.B. Smoove, Helen Mirren, and studio veteran John Ratzenberger.

Dan Scanlon (Tracy, Mater and the Ghostlight) is behind the camera for his sophomore feature, directing from a script co-written by Pete Docter (Monsters, Inc.) and Andrew Stanton (Toy Story 3, Finding Nemo).

Monsters University will be released in 3D on June 21st in the US, followed by a 12th July release date here in the UK. This is pretty much guaranteed to be a contender come awards season for the Best Animated Feature; I can’t wait to see it.
