Mike + Sulley Updated Character Designs Revealed!

Thanks to our friends at The Pixar Times, we now have our first look at the updated character designs of the iconic Monsters duo.

Director Dan Scanlon showed side-by-side images of Mike and Sulley from the original film and its prequel at yesterday’s D23 Expo. The scare team gets a facelift, you might say, as Monsters University takes audiences back to college.

Some notable changes seen in the 18-year old Mike Wazowski include shorter horns and nails, smoother skin and a retainer! Sulley is noticeably taller and skinnier with better posture and less exaggerated horns.

One aspect that stays constant from Inc. to University is the inclusion of Billy Crystal and John Goodman who will both reprise their starring roles in the upcoming film. Also confirmed at D23 is the return of Steve Buscemi as Randall Boggs. New additions to the cast will include Dave Foley (Flik in A Bug’s Life) and Pete Sohn (Emile in Ratatouille) as yet-to-be revealed characters.

Monsters University scares its way into theaters on June 21, 2013.

    You’re totally right. Pete did the scratch voice for Russell, though, which is probably why I wrote that. Fixed the article!

  3. These renders don’t look completely finished, I’m sure they’ll look much better by the time we get a first trailer. I’m mostly just throwing this out there to try to stave off the “This looks like crap, Pixar’s quality is in a downward spiral” posts.

    Martin- Do you need to have a 3D TV to watch the extra bonus features on the Cars 2 5-Disc Edition?
