The marketing campaign thusfar for Monsters University has already been quite creative, especially given that the film is not set to arrive until June 2013. Disney/Pixar opened up a creative viral website for Monsters University recently, showcasing the fictional college’s history, mission statement, campus map, and more. From what we have seen of the film, it looks like the story will be humorous, filled with many college hijinks. This morning saw the release of two new images from the film, which are centered around the time when Mike and Sulley first meet. Take a look at the great images after the break!
Entertainment Weekly exclusively shared the new stills, the first of which features Mike looking oh-not-so-thrilled with his role in the party. Director Dan Scanlon tells EW, “This is part of a college prank,” and is likely a good example of how Mike is treated through the first half of the film.
Here is the film’s official synopsis:
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.
