Monsters-University-Character-Poster-Mike-WazowskiAfter taking home the Best Animated Film Oscar at the start of the year for Brave, Pixar return to the big screen this summer with their first ever prequel, Monsters University.

Going back to the college days of our beloved Mike and Sulley, the film is naturally sure to be a strong contender in the same category early next year.

We’ve seen plenty of brilliant things from the animated blockbuster already, with the first full-length trailer landing two and a half months ago. And with its release now less than two months away, the studio have debuted another terrific new trailer, courtesy of Yahoo Movies.

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 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 this time around, 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, with its UK release date following shortly after on 12th July.
