Pixar’s Monsters University will not be released until summer 2013, but the animated feature film, directed by alumnus Dan Scanlon (CCAD 1998), is getting a lot of media attention already.
We broke the exciting news last year that Scanlon would be directing the Monsters Inc prequel. This week the LA Times wrote an article announcing that the movie had released not one, not two, but four trailers for Monsters University, which will follow monsters Mike and Sully, voiced by John Goodman and Billy Crystal, as they navigate their way through college life at scaring school.
“This is about showing youthful exuberance and fun,” Scanlon said in the article. “Just Mike and Sully being wild and young feels right.”
This will be Scanlon’s first time directing a feature film, but he has had a writing credit on Cars, co-directed the short Mater and the Ghostlight, and was a storyboard artist on other Pixar projects.
Monsters University will be released into theaters June 21, 2013. To read the full LA Times article and watch the trailers click here.
