This summer Pixar drops its yearly treat in the form of a sequel that will hopefully prove more satisfying than its previous follow-up. Though I had no desire for a Cars 2 and feel in the minority when it comes to last years original effort, Brave, I am seriously looking forward to the long awaited sequel, or should I say prequel, to Monsters Inc. Being only the fourth Disney/Pixar film back in 2001 Monsters Inc. has remained one of my favorite films from the studio and the idea of seeing MikeWazowski (Billy Crystal) and James P. “Sulley” Sullivan (John Goodman) as college kids trying to become the trained "scarers" they are in the original film is a promising premise for a couple of characters impossible not to love. We have been served plenty of teaser trailers and mock university commercials for the film but now we finally have a full length trailer that gives a good impression for what the final film might deliver. There are plenty of laughs here and Pixar seems to have found its humor comfort zone in these familiar faces as well. The animation looks flawless and the story looks to be a rollicking adventure that kids will no doubt have fun with and one parents and those who grew up on the original film and are now experiencing college themselves will find plenty to laugh at and relate to. The film also features the voices of Steve Buscemi, Dave Foley, Julia Sweeney, Joel Murray, and Peter Sohn. Monsters University opens in 3D on June 21st. Hit the jump to watch the trailer.

Synopsis: Mike Wazowski (voiced by Billy Crystal) and James P. Sullivan (voiced by John Goodman) 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.
