Monsters-University-PosterOne of the highlights of the year in film without a doubt will be Monsters University. Taking us back to the college days of Mike Wazowski and Sulley, the Monsters, Inc. prequel is sure to be one of the best animated films of the year, and a must-see movie this summer.

The brilliant first teaser trailer landed back in the summer last year, giving us a great first look at the film. And whilst we eagerly await the full-length trailer’s arrival, we’ve just had a great new poster sent over to share.

“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, with its UK release date set for 12th July. We can’t wait, and are pretty sure you’re as excited as us. For now, here’s the great new poster, which you can click through to enlarge. And be sure to come back soon for that all-important new trailer. This is going to be a lot of fun.
