We currently don’t have a lot of info on Pixar’s upcoming prequel to Monsters, Inc., Monsters University. All we know right now is that it will focus on Mike Wazowski and James “Sully” Sullivan during their early college years, and that it’s going to come out on June 21, 2013. Other than that, nada.
Now, courtesy of an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Mike Wazowski voice actor Billy Crystal has provided a few key details about the upcoming prequel:
“They’re 17 and 18 years old in the script,” Crystal sasy. “My guy has a retainer, even. They end up in the same fraternity where they have this scare competition — like Greek Games in college. They have to mobilize a group, sort of like Revenge of the Nerds-monsters, and get them ready to be scary.”
Monsters University is directed by Dan Scanlon, who was a storyboard artist on Cars and co-director of the short Mater and the Ghostlight. In addition to Billy Crystal, the movie will also feature the voices of John Goodman, Steve Buscemi, Dave Foley, Julia Sweeney, Joel Murray and Peter Sohn.
