Monsters-University-PosterArriving in theatres this summer, Pixar’s Monsters University is naturally going to be a big highlight of the year for animated film. And we can’t wait to see what the prequel has to bring in a few months’ time.

Following the brilliant teaser trailer last year, we’re expecting the first full-length trailer to land later today. And before that, the film’s first featurette has debuted online, introducing us to the story we have coming our way this summer.

“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. “Monsters University” unlocks the door to how Mike and Sulley overcame their differences and became the best of friends.

Screaming with laughter and fun, “Monsters University” 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 original leading roles in the voice cast, joined by Steve Buscemi, Jennifer Tilly, Kelsey Grammer, Frank Oz, Ken Jeong, the classic John Ratzenberger, and the awesome J.B. Smoove.

Dan Scanlon (Tracy, Mater and the Ghostlight) is behind the camera, taking over the helm from Pete Docter, directing from a script co-written by Docter and Andrew Stanton (Toy Story 3, Finding Nemo).

Monsters University will be released in 3D on 21st June in the US. Its UK release date is coming a little later on 12th July, and we fully expect it to be well worth the wait. For now, here’s the film’s first featurette. And be sure to come back later for when the new trailer arrives. Enjoy.
