Those loveable monsters Mike and Sulley are heading back to cinemas this year as Disney-Pixar releases the Monsters, Inc. prequel Monsters University, and the acclaimed animation studio has now released a full-length theatrical trailer, which you can check out below.
“Ever since college-bound Mike Wazowski (voiced by Billy Crystal) was a little monster, he has dreamed of becoming a Scarer—and he knows better than anyone that the best scarers come from Monsters University (MU). But during his first semester at MU, Mike’s plans are derailed when he crosses paths with hotshot James P. Sullivan, “Sulley” (voiced by John Goodman), a natural-born Scarer. The pair’s out-of-control competitive spirit gets them both kicked out of the University’s elite Scare Program. To make matters worse, they realize they will have to work together, along with an odd bunch of misfit monsters, if they ever hope to make things right.“
Monsters University is directed by Dan Scanlon (Cars) and sees Billy Crystal and John Goodman joined in the voice cast by the retuning Steve Buscemi, Jennifer Tilly, John Ratzenberger and Frank Oz, alongside Helen Mirren (Hitchcock), Kelsey Grammer (Frasier), Alfred Molina (Spider-Man 2), Ken Jeong (The Hangover), Charlie Day (Pacific Rim), Rob Riggle (Step Brothers), Joel Murray (God Bless America), Dave Foley (Toy Story 2), Sean Hayes (Will & Grace), Julia Sweeney (The Goode Family) and Peter Sohn (Ratatouille).
Monsters University is set for release on June 21st in North America and July 12th in the UK.
