This is your first look at the upcoming Monsters University short from Pixar called Party Down. The short is set to show with screenings of The Muppets: Most Wanted. They showed fans the entire short already at Disney's D23 expo, and I have to say it was pretty hilarious. In the picture above it may look like Oozma Kappas are bored, but don't worry. Mike and Sulley show up with a great plan to get the party rocking!
While talking to EW, writer-director Kelsey Mann had this to say,
”When you first meet the Oozma Kappas, they go to their fraternity house and the first thing they say is, ‘Welcome to party central! We haven’t thrown a party yet, but when we do we’ll be ready,’ I kept telling Dan [Scanlon, the director of Monsters University], ‘I really want to see their party. We have to do it in the credits or something.’ Then when the idea of doing a short came up, we were like, ‘That could be the party!’"
The short took Pixar's team eight months to make. It went into production towards the end of the original film's production so that the pick-ups could include new lines for it. You'll get to see it on March 21st, 2014!
