We’re just a little over a month away from Pixar’s newest film, ‘Monsters University’, which is one of my most anticipated films of the year. I talked quite a bit about it almost two years ago, after the 2011 D23 Expo here in Anaheim, CA. As a huge fan of ‘Monsters, Inc.’, I really don’t think I could be more excited for the film, and it feels like I’ve been waiting forever for it to get here. The film reunites Billy Crystal as Mike Wazowski, and John Goodman as James P. Sullivan, but this time, the two aren’t nearly as close as they were in the original. We find the two for the first time, in their college years, where they’re rival scarers in their classes. It’s a very interesting dynamic, so it’ll be fun to see it play out, as well as to see what brings them together.
In anticipation for the new film, Walt Disney Pictures and Pixar have brought mothers across the world a message, wishing them a very happy Mother’s Day. The video below features quite a few characters from the prequel,and plays off the very familiar Pixar humors. It’s a very short and sweet, and makes me even more excited for the film than I already was. Hit the jump to check out this Mother’s Day greeting, as well as the latest trailer for ‘Monsters University’, which opens nationwide June 21, 2013.
