New Trailer Alert: Monsters University

With Brave opening on Friday to what seems to be only OK reviews (currently at 73% on Rotten Tomatoes), and Cars 2 being a bust, perhaps it is indeed time for Pixar to dig into their vaults and come back with some beloved characters.

Heck, it worked with Toy Story 3, one of the best reviewed Pixar films – if not one of the best reviewed films of 2010.

Concept for those hallowed halls

Thankfully the next Pixar movie will focus on 2 of my favorite characters, Mike and Sully (Billy Crystal and John Goodman reprising their roles) from their 2001 film, Monsters, Inc. In Monsters University, we go back to a simpler time, a time when Mike and Sully were college roommates, staying up late, partying in the dorms, and learning how to produce those screams (and then later, laughs) so necessary to power the city.

The disco ball is an obvious joke, but it just works so well you forgive them.

      Absolutely!
      I just really hope they don’t screw it up. The fact that Brave isn’t getting raves worries me… But this is just too good for them to mess up too badly.

    I feel like they aren’t explaining Brave in the trailer very well. Which makes me hesitant to go see it. I’m excited that it’s a female based story but I think they might be trying to do too much. It’s not going to earn a gazillion dollars so the movie executives will think that girl-centered animated movies aren’t profitable and won’t make any more.

      Which is really funny when you think about the fact that Disney’s films were almost all female-centric at first. Even though those females were all princesses of a sort who needed to be rescued by the strong (and oddly nameless) men.
