Here's the new trailer for MONSTERS UNIVERSITY from Pixar and Disney. Look, I've been down on Pixar lately - what's been coming from them is brilliant technically, but the story just is not there anymore. Further, I don't think sequels or prequels are the way to bring back originality and great storytelling.
What's going on over at Pixar anyway? Don't they have the same development cycle they've always had? Has the mouse house interrupted that in some way? Too many questions for me. Anyway, this trailer hints at some funny moments - but where is the UP or RATATOUILLE in this movie? I'm concerned yet again. PLANES? Not the answer either. Same universe as CARS and CARS 2. It's for the marketing of toys I know - but this is Pixar! Marvel better not suffer the same fate.
What we can expect however, is amazing stereoscopic 3D. That they have nailed.
Here's the movie's storyline:
Ever since college-bound Mike Wazowski (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” (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 opens on June 21.
