It seems that Disney Pixar has gone into the prequel trend and will be bringing us Monsters University next year, where we get to see how Mike and Sully learned to be the “scary” monsters in the closet that we meet at the beginning of Monsters, Inc.
Here’s the synopsis:
Mike Wazowski and James P. Sullivan are an inseparable pair, but that wasn’t always the case. From the moment these two mismatched monsters met they couldn’t stand each other. “Monsters University” unlocks the door to how Mike and Sulley overcame their differences and became the best of friends.
So if you haven’t already heard, it’s been announced that Pixar are creating a prequel to Monsters Inc, called Monsters University. It’s starring Mike and Sulley again, both voiced by John Goodman and Billy Crystal, and it was co-written by Pete Docker, who directed and co-wrote Monsters Inc, and Andrew Stanton, who also co-wrote Monsters Inc.
According to Wikipedia, the plot is loosely based on how Mike and Sulley went from being enemies to friends. Billy Crystal says that the film is “college pranks with monsters. And I wear a retainer. Mike has a retainer.”. He also said that the script is “hilarious”.
We still have to wait another year though, as the release date is currently set at June 21st 2013!

Turning the most realistic 3D animation into the simplest vector graphic… Everybody loves Pixar, which means you wouldn’t want to do anything to let them down. Because it has really broad demographics, in terms of age bracket and cultural background, it was very challenging to come up with something that pleases such a wide audience whilst satisfying myself as an artist and as a fan of Pixar, too.
