How did Mike and Sulley end up working on the scare floor in Monsters, Inc.?
As the trailer for the new prequel Monsters Universitysuggests, well … maybe they would have landed better jobs if they’d studied more and pranked each other less in college. But hey, who can’t say the same?
Check out some new photos and the trailer(s). Yes, that’s plural … sort of.
The teaser for the movie, which opens June 20, 2013, actually has four variations, each one with different gags of Mike Wazowski, a.k.a. the giant, green eyeball-with-legs, muttering in his sleep. Monsters University director Dan Scanlon said it was too hard to choose just one from voice actor Billy Crystal’s many improvisations, so they went with four.
This will be Pixar’s first prequel, predating the events in Monsters Inc. and showing the somewhat rocky early relationship between Wazowski and James P. Sullivan (John Goodman, also reprising his role from the original.)
While they haven’t changed all that much from the first time we saw them in 2002, the film offers subtle variations: Mike has braces, for one, and Sulley seems to have not yet packed on that freshman 15 weight gain.
No need to look under the bed and in closets for the videos, we’ve got them all here.

Is it odd that I kind of liked the trailer (the prank made me chuckle anyway) yet it also made me even more anxious about this movie than I was previously? I mean I like it when Mike is on the buttend of a joke NGL but... yeah, it's something I'd prefer as a short or something then a a trailer to what is going to be a full fledged movie. Granted college shenanigans are hardly my favourite type of thing.
I'm still not so hot on the whole basic premise as of yet. And Wow it is so weird to see Sulley looking like this. I'm kind of cautious I guess is what I'm saying yet I'm hoping I'll like this all the same.
