Vaughan & Chiang's "Paper Girls" Builds a Familiar Yet Disconcerting World
The first trailer for Pixar’s Monsters University has arrived, and if you liked Monsters Inc., you’ll likely end up loving this.
As has already been revealed in previous plot synopses, the movie follows Mike Wazowski and James P. “Sully” Sullivan as they enroll in Monsters University to educate themselves in scaring young children. It doesn’t take long for them to become rivals — in fact, it seems to happen instantly — and soon it seems like they’re doing their best to trump one another in the fear department.
Unfortunately for them, things soon spiral out of control. At least the laughs stay constant as we get to know Mike and Sully before their Incorporated days. Like we said, you know what you’re getting into beforehand, and if you like the whole Monsters shtick, you’ll likely enjoy this new flick.
Billy Crystal, John Goodman and Steve Buscemi reprise their roles in Monsters University, which opens June 21. The official plot synopsis reads: “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 and produced by Kori Rae.”
