I’ve always been a big Pixar supporter (I DON’T CARE WHO I PISS OFF BY SAYIN’ I LOVE WALL-E, I DIDN’T GET WHERE I AM BY BEIN’ AFRAID OF CONTROVERSY), but after a couple of Cars movies and Brave looking like the most uninspired of female-protagonist plots (I didn’t get to go to my press screening so I can’t confirm this yet), you wonder if the brand has lost its luster. Well today brings us the trailer for Disney/Pixar’s Monsters University, the prequel to 2001’s Monsters Inc, in case you always wondered where the monsters matriculated before they started their LLC. I never saw the original, but it seems like if it was any good someone would’ve forced me to watch it by now. It’s like Toy Story with monsters, right? Anyway, the big blue bear guy and the walking eyeball are college roommates in this one.
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.

Eh. It seems cute enough. People my age can take our kids to it while smuggling in beer helmets to relive our college days. I’m telling you, dude, me and Burnsy ruled that school. You can take a long pull from your beer, give your kid a fist pound and be like, “Bro, you think this is righteous? You should’ve been there when we dared Goose to fingerbang the pig-faced Tri-Delt after Pike midget toss and he ended up having to register as a sex offender. Craziest semester ever. That Tri-Delt’s your Aunt Lindsay now, by the way.”
