In a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly Billy Crystal talked about Pixar's Monster University revealing a few more details on the story, which finds Mike and Sully in college. Earlier this year the story was described as follows,
Mike Wazowski and James P. Sullivan are an inseparable pair, but that wasn't always the case. From the moment these two mismatched monsters met they couldn't stand each other. "Monsters University" unlocks the door to how Mike and Sulley overcame their differences and became the best of friends.
We now have a little more insight on what else we'll see in the film. This isn't just about the crazy dorm life, it will also take us in to the world of the monster fraternities,
[Mike and Sully] 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.
Don't expect them to be partying too hard though, we won't be seeing them guzzling down booze from red solo cups. This is a kids movie, and Crystal adds that the characters aren't even old enough to drink,
They’re 17 and 18 years old in the script. My guy has a retainer, even.
This looks like it's going to be a great prequel, and I think we're going to see some fun pranks pulled off, like we saw in the frist teaser trailer which you can watch below. Who's your favorite Monster from this franchise?
