Pixar and director Pete Docter‘s wonderful film Monsters, Inc. scared up lots of laughs and smiles with its heart-warming story back in 2001. While the studio has had success with sequels, this charming film had an ending that no one in their right mind would mess with. So what’s an animation powerhouse like Pixar to do? Well they decided to take this story back a little bit. In this “prequel”, the film will give us a a look at the relationship between Mike and Sulley during their days at the University of Fear — when they weren’t necessarily the best of friends. And these two teaser posters (and teaser trailer) give us a hint of what we can expect.
Monsters University is directed by Dan Scanlon and stars Billy Crystal and John Goodman (and even Steve Buscemi) who are returning to voice their beloved characters. Disney will be releasing Pixar’s delightful looking prequel next Spring on June 21, 2013 in 3D. For those of you who need something, beyond these posters to tide you over, Monsters, Inc. will be getting its 3D re-release next month on December 19th. Neat??
