Monsters University Official Trailer & Extended Sneak Peek
Posted February 11, 2013 06:04 PM by Webmaster
Walt Disney Pictures and Pixar Pixar Animation Studios have released two Monsters University previews: the first a new theatrical trailer and the second an extended sneak peek included on the February 19th 5-disc Collector's Edition Combo Pack release of Monsters, Inc. 3D. Monsters University makes its U.S. theatrical debut on June 21st.
Ever since college-bound Mike Wazowski (voiced by 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.
Just looks like a straight laced comedy. I can't make up my mind about whether that's a good thing or a bad thing yet so I'll have to just wait and see. It might be good but I know for certain it won't reach anywhere near as high as Monsters Inc. which had a lot of laughs, heart-break, occasional terror, intense warmth and general love. This one looks like it has laughs. That's it. It might be good but I'm not setting my expectations very high because I don't want to be left disappointed.
Really wish disney wouldn't rely on pixar movies so much, I am sure this will be great.
But come on is it to much to ask for a hand drawn style movie every 3-4 years. I get it CGI is the prefered format for now, but there is just something that CGI movies just can't get yet that hand drawn does to perection.
WJWS, I'd like to see another "hand drawn" Disney movie too -- but it definitely WON'T be from Pixar. I put "hand drawn" in quotes because nobody (except possibly Hayao Miyazaki) makes truly hand-drawn animation anymore; even The Princess and the Frog came out of a computer. It may be better to develop a new style of CGI that draws on the conventions of traditional animation, like Paperman.
I agree to an extent with @deepbreathsanddeath--it does look like it will have more fun than heart.
It is somewhat doomed to be inferior to the original by the premise alone. Exploring a bond between two monsters vs. exploring a bond between monsters and children. I am still glad they are making a sequel though.
@killermike: Maybe they will find that they knew each other for longer than they thought.
