Recently some rumors (though some sources are calling it fact, but you can never tell with Pixar) came out stating that Finding Nemo 2 was being made under Andrew Stanton’s direction and that Toy Story 4 was in the works as well. After these two… Read More »Pixar Sequels and Why Fans Need to Calm Down
Yesterday we saw the first trailer for Monsters University, the next film from Pixar following Brave. Monsters University is a prequel to Monsters Inc and will take Mike & Sulley back to their college years. Disney has released some concept art and images from that trailer which show the rich world making detail that was a large part of the success of Monsters Inc 11 years ago.
I’ve uploaded them in sizes suitable for most desktop screens if you click on the image. The other thing this makes me think of, is that Disney merchandising could already be selling a whole line of Monsters University merchandise and put us fans to work as walking ads for the film. I’d buy a Monsters U Reyn Spooner shirt right now and happily wear a Monsters Univ sweatshirt all winter long. Pennants, hats, jerseys, the list is endless. Just walk into your nearest university bookstore and recreate that.
Below the jump are more images from the trailer. I love looking at all the great detail in the world of Monstropolis.
Those lovable monsters Mike and Sully are returning to a theater near you. Pixar’s Monsters University is a prequel to Monsters Inc where Mike Wazowski and James P. Sullivan are back in college.

Hello, and welcome to the D23 Expo, Day 2 (for more expo coverage read my D23 Expo Day 1 and Alison’s D23 Expo Day 3 recaps!) where things were taken up a big ol’ notch. I know, I couldn’t believe it either.
This is where you say, “How in the world did they top the first day? Nothing could be sweeter than Kermit the Frog and Rowlf the Dog singing a tribute to the late, great Jim Henson! Nothing could be better than Dick Van Dyke in concert!
Fair enough. However, where Day 1 was a tip of the hat to Disney legends, Day 2 was about the now and the immediate future. Hence John Lasseter introducing Billy Crystal to a standing ovation (Lasseter also received a standing ovation) while discussing the upcoming Pixar film Monsters University. Also, Jason Segel coming out with Kermit the Frog and Miss Piggy to discuss the new Muppet Movie. And of course, the Avengers assembling. On stage. That’s right, with the exception of the Hulk and Captain America, the entire team came out to watch a trailer that they had never seen. Robert Downey, Jr. made us watch it twice. Basically, it was a parade of celebrities (including Jennifer Garner, Sarah Silverman, and Jon Cryer, to name but a few) and Disney awesomeness (including Rich Ross, Andrew Stanton, and Marvel’s Kevin Feige, to again name but a few). My inner geek setting was at 11.
When word of Walt Disney Animation Studios next release was originally leaked, we learned the title was Reboot Ralph and that it was focused on a video game character who escaped his game. But that was about all we knew. Now Disney has changed the… Read More »Wreck-It Ralph moves up release date, reboots name
