Mike Goes For A Ride In New ‘Monsters University’ Still

The re-release of Monsters, Inc. 3D will be hitting theaters next week, which makes it the perfect time for Disney/Pixar to build some more awareness about the film’s prequel that is set for release in 2013, Monsters University. In addition to two new images from the film that debuted earlier this week, we are also likely to get a full-length trailer for MU soon. To hold us over for that footage, another new still has been released. Take a closer look at it after the break!

Disney/Pixar took to its Tumblr blog to share the still. Accompanying the image is a description that recognizes the vast differences in the characters of Mike and Sulley:

ARE WE HAVING FUN YET? When it comes to college life, Mike and Sulley have VERY different ideas of what it means to have a good time. ”It’€™s a wonder these two mismatched monsters ever settled their differences.


The creature that Mike is riding seems to be a monster version of a goat. It is tough to say how the “monster-goat” feels about this, but Mike does not seem too thrilled with where this is headed.

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.
