Monsters University 1

Are you a fan of Disney’s Monsters Inc.?  Well, I have great news for you!  On June 21, 2013, Mike Wazowski and James P. Sullivan (aka Sulley) will be back on the big screen as they head to Monsters University (MU) to become the best Scarers ever!!



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.

Screaming with laughter and oozing with heart, Disney•Pixar’s Monsters University is directed by Dan Scanlon (Cars, “Mater and the Ghostlight,” “Tracy”), produced by Kori Rae (Up, The Incredibles, Monsters, Inc.) and features music from future Rock-and-Roll-Hall-of-Fame–inductee and award winning composer Randy Newman (Monsters, Inc., Toy Story 3).  The film opens in U.S. theaters on June 21, 2013, and will be shown in Disney Digital 3D™ in select theaters.
