Alongside the new promotional material released recently, Disney and Pixar have also aired a TV spot for their upcoming Monsters University during the commercial break of last night’s Rose Bowl between the Cardinals and the Badgers.
The spot, entitled Imagine You at MU, is described by the Disney owned ESPN as, “a glimpse at the wide variety of creatures and schools that make Monsters University the premiere destination for academic excellence. Now is the perfect time to find out if MU is right for you!”
Carrying on the viral marketing for the movie, a new website has opened at www.monstersuniversity.com/edu which gives details about the university, activities and also has some early merchandise. The enrolling section of the website currently doesn’t go anywhere, but we expect it will let you apply for a place at the University once the marketing for the movie gets in full swing.
With this new TV spot and website, it shouldn’t be too long before we get a full length trailer.
Monsters University tells the story of how Mike and Sully overcame their differences to become the friends we know from 2001’s Monsters Inc. Returning to the cast is Billy Crystal (When Harry Met Sally) as Mike, John Goodman (Red State) as Sully and Steve Buscemi (Boardwalk Empire) as Randall and is set to be released on June 21st in the States and 12th July in the UK.
