New ‘Monsters University’ Teaser Poster Features College-Age Mike and Sulley

Monsters, Inc. is a film that is beloved by many, with its hilarious characters, touching story, and of course, introduction of one of the most adorable girls to ever be seen on the big screen, Boo. Its prequel, Monsters University, which will be premiering more than 11 years after the original film, will bring us the story of when Mike and Sulley were rivals in college – that means no Boo to enchant audiences. However, it looks like Mike and Sulley may be able to carry the film on their own this time, especially in the hilarity department – take a look at the new humorous MU teaser poster after the break!

Fandango has exclusively premiered the poster, which features the two characters looking noticeably younger. While the MU college jackets display their current stage in life, even their figures and facial features have been adjusted, giving us a great look at the lovable characters years before we met them in the first film.

Some of you may see a resemblance between the MU teaser poster and the famous one for Monsters, Inc., which allows us to see the remarkable differences in the characters’ appearances even further:

Here is the official synopsis for Monsters University:

Mike Wazowski and James P. Sullivan are an inseparable pair, but that wasn’t always the case. From the moment these two mismatched monsters met they couldn’t stand each other. “Monsters University” unlocks the door to how Mike and Sulley overcame their differences and became the best of friends.

Screaming with laughter and fun, “Monsters University” is directed by Dan Scanlon (“Cars,” “Mater and the Ghostlight,” “Tracy”) and produced by Kori Rae (“Up,” “The Incredibles,” “Monsters, Inc.”). The film opens in U.S. theaters on June 21, 2013, and will be shown in Disney Digital 3D™ in select theaters.
