Monsters University is only a few short months away and the sneak peeks into Pixar’s latest feature film have just begun. This past week Animation Fascination shared a video look into the Monster world from the new Monsters Inc.Blu-Ray – which will be released on February 19, 2013. The short video clip features new Monsters University concept art and well as commentary from director Dan Scanlon.
Don’t miss the new clip from Monsters University at time mark 2:51 and see if you can spot any characters from Monsters, Inc.
After watching this clip, we are thrilled to hear that Pixarian Peter Sohn is lending his voice to the endearing character, Squishy.
The Monsters University concept art from the video shows Mike and Sulley in various stages of their relationship as well as an introduction to a new character. To see Pixar films and characters conceptualized through these early art renderings has always been a favorite of ours and from the looks of this art, we are in for a visual treat!
Are you going to pledge OOZMA KAPPA? We are!
Hi! Don't you find it a bit strange that in the first movie Mike said to Sulley, \”You have been jealous of my looks since the 4th grade\”, but in this movie they supposedly have not met until college. Do you think that was a necessary tweak in the plot?
I think if anything, Pixar would probably explain that by saying something to the effect of – Mike was merely exaggerating on the length of time that Sulley had been jealous of his looks. Also…I'm sure there's just a little bit of creative freedom there since they most likely weren't thinking about a prequel when making Monsters, Inc.! 🙂
By the way – great catch though. It is amazing what everyone recalls from the films though! 🙂
