Enroll in the full trailer for Pixar's Monster's University, starring John Goodman and Billy Crystal

2 years agoby:

The full trailer for Pixar's MONSTERS UNIVERSITY has arrived and it's about what you'd expect; playful, witty, and chock full of a garden variety of monsters.  It's not life changing or anything and I doubt this will set your desire to see it on fire, but it's perfectly in line with your standard Pixar fare.  Is that enough, though? 

After last year's "original" film, BRAVE, Pixar left many underwhelmed and hoping for a return to their better work, a la TOY STORY, WALL-E, UP, THE INCREDIBLES, etc., but it seems they dug further into the archives than we may have liked.  MONSTERS UNIVERSITY seemed to get an audible sigh from most fans of their work, especially with it being a prequel.  Of course, they kind of screwed their chances of a sequel after taking away the "scare" aspect of the monsters in the first film. 

Still, this is better than a CARS 3, right?  Returning castmembers John Goodman as Sulley and Billy Crystal as Mike Wazowski sound right in line with their original characters' fun banter.  Steve Buscemi is back as Randall Boggs and the new voices of Julia Sweeney, Joel Murray, Michael McKean, and Dave Foley round out the talent for the prequel.

MONSTERS UNIVERSITY enrolls in theaters on June 21, 2013.  Bet your ass, in 3D.

It may not have been necessary, but it looks like a lot of fun and that works for me.

Looks muuuuuuch better than Cars 2

Much more compelling characters than "Dad-gum I swallered a booger!"

On the surface it looks like the movie is trying (and failing) to be a straight up comedy. There was no depth and nothing really original. I'm sure this will have some heart, but I'm not really on board. Pixar is great, but they have definitely fallen from the "they can do no wrong" mindset. I also don't like that this is a prequel. Bring on 'The Good Dinosaur'

Well...I'm Not Too Thrilled...

and I'm a Pixar fan.

Seems to me to be more "Cars 2".

Sadly.

Pointless but not nearly as bad as Cars 2

Will I see it? Yes, I have 2 kids so of course i will.
Unnecessary? Absolutely. Was anyone really asking themselves about the origin story of Mike and Sully's friendship. I understood Cars 2 from a toy sales/merchandising standpoint, but what is the point of this? Are kids going to want monster toys the way they bought the shit out of cars? Plus as a prequel there is no where to go with the story, like there was with Toy Story 2 and 3.
Best part of the trailer was the slug running to class. I

Looking Forward To It

As a current college student, I look forward to Pixar satirizing college life. Some of the jokes in this trailer fell flat (like the slug being late for class), but I'm sure that was to satisfy kids. I'm sure there will be better humor in the next trailer. I doubt this will be as good as the original MI, or match anything from the Pixar golden era (Ratatouille-TS3), but it should be a good movie. We still don't have a good idea as to what the plot is yet.

While I'm not quite looking forward to it, I laughed at the mop-headed art club student joke.
