This new concept art for Monsters University gives us a good look at who the monsters used to be

Monsters University concept art title

I've always loved Pixar and the work that they do, but to be frank I'm not nearly as excited for MONSTERS UNIVERSITY as I think I could be. The dramatic tension in a prequels can always be a bit tricky to build because, having seen the first movie, we already know where the story will eventually end up. And because I do so love the inventiveness constantly on display in Pixar's films/world creation, I really just wish they'd keep doing original work.

But maybe that's merely my selfish opinion. And MONSTERS UNIVERSITY is happening either way, so let's take gander at this (admittedly) fun and crisp concept art for the June 21st, 2013 release. Done through CGI, this art showcases several of the titular monsters back in their titular university days.

So what do you think about the art? And what do you think about Pixar doing a prequel?

Extra Tidbit: MONSTERS INC. was, by the time it finished its run, the highest grossing animated film ever released.

i said it before, and i'll say it again

Pixar can do no wrong

even a bad Pixar movie is way better than half the animated crap thats released. The Cars movies may have not been as emotionally demanding as the studios other movies, but they were still a lot of fun and had a good moral structure. Monsters University will be another great addition to the Pixar canon.

Willing to give it a shot

Cars 2 was Pixar's first real disappointment and Brave, while a solid film, wasn't on the same level as Pixar's best. But I'm not ready to dismiss this film until I've actually seen it.

I'm glad they did a prequel instead of a sequel, b/c the first movie had such a great ending, but I don't know why we needed either. I get more of a Cars 2 vibe from this, where instead of having a good story Pixar thought it would be cool to see cars as spies (or Monsters in college, in this case), and develop the story after the fact. I'd be glad to be proven wrong. I still think Pixar has a great track record and will remain cautiously optimistic about this.

I'm not a fan of them doing a prequel. The relationship with Boo gave the original so much heart and I wish they left it as is. However, we must not forget Toy Story 2, but on the flip side, we must not forget Cars 2. I really hope this is not being made just for cheap laughs and toys. It's strange that they decided to go the prequel route instead of the sequel route. I am really looking forward to The Good Dinosaur.
