Although Monsters Univeristy isn’t out until June 21, Pixar’s 3D conversion of the original Monsters, Inc. makes its way into theaters next week. In anticipation, Entertainment Weekly has released two new stills from Monsters U, showcasing the rocky roots of Mike and Sulley’s friendship.
Director Dan Scanlon explains, "This is roughly around the time Mike and Sulley meet. […] They’re at a fraternity party, and this is Mike and Sulley getting off on the wrong foot a little bit." Adding on, producer Kori Rae says "They both approach life in different ways. Mike is the go-getter type, anything is possible, and he’s the super-hard worker. Sulley is different because he’s a great scarer, he has this natural ability, but Mike has to work for it."
In a Reddit AMA earlier today, Pete Docter said the film "is turning [out] really well — it looks fantastic and is really funny." Hopefully we’ll get a better peek at the film when the next trailer premieres.
What do you expect from Monsters University?
UPDATE: Disney•Pixar have put up another new still on their Tumblr page! Looks to be from the same college prank scene from the first image.
