Pixar is holding a special event this week to give the press a peek at Monsters University and The Blue Umbrella. Although we weren’t able to attend, we’ll be sure to post a summary of the happenings and any new impressions of the film as they arrive. In the meantime, get up-to-date on the latest Monsters University news:

Monsters University Books Get Cover Art: Regardless of your interest in the childrens’ books that accompany each Pixar movie, there’s no denying that they often contain some appealing and colorful illustrations. Now that Amazon has updated many of their listings for upcoming Monsters University books with cover art, you can get a peek at some of the visual stylings they’ll contain. The Little Golden Book cover (to the right) is particularly nice; be sure to take a look at the rest.
