As they say opposites attract and they do here in Monster Inc. prequel as both did not like each other however the purpose of the film is to see how the become those great buddies, so we have a buddy flick animated stylee.
The new trailer serves up what you expect from a Pixar animation which is great news after the past few films, reminding us why we love their animation. A preview featurette was released over the weekend (see below) revealing a little bits of the plot, some of the characters but watch the trailer first, why? The trailer provides the laughs and when every subculture you expect to see at University, an American one at least (Cheerleaders, Jocks, sorority girls, protesters) are all here, outlandish and what you expect from Monsters Inc. We also get a first look at Dean Hardscrabble a dragon like monster which has a new voice, not Julia Sweeney now Helen Mirren minus the pink hair from last night’s Bafta’s she look like she’ll continue her recent trend of playing imposing characters.

Check out some new images that Disney UK have sent us from Monsters University below.
Ever since college-bound Mike Wazowski (voice of 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” (voice of 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.
