While we’re on the subject of prequels (because, really, when are we not, America?), Disney and Pixar have released teaser trailers from their latest love child, Monsters University which will hit theaters next summer. The film is a prequel to Monsters, Inc., released in 2001 and will depict our favorite monsters as college students before they ever hit the scare floor; and will take us through the story of how Mike and Sulley met and how they became friends from rivals. The four new teaser trailers were released by Disney, Apple, Yahoo, and the Huffington Post; and on first viewing appear to be all exactly the same. However, when Sulley pulls the sheet off of the bed and reveals Mike, each trailer has a line Mike utters in his sleep that is unique unto itself. (I kind of hope they use “My pony made the Dean’s List…haha.”)
You can see the other 3 HERE.
I think they look pretty funny, and hopefully they are because Cars 2 was a train wreck and Brave looks like a bunch of gingers running around aimlessly with no plot, talking like Scrooge McDuck. (I hope I’m wrong on that.) With the amazing voice talents of John Goodman and Billy Crystal, I don’t see how we can go wrong. Two of the funniest men to ever be in my favorite movies. As long as they roll with the laughs and write out a good plot that doesn’t make Mike and Sulley go all Brokeback Mountain, we should be in for an animated treat.
