In recent years the king of animation has undoubtedly been Pixar. Everything they work on has been pure magic, they are even capable of making amazing squeals (read as Toy Story 3 made me cry). And now that the Toy Story franchise seems all but completed the company is beginning work on expanding the universes of more of their films. First up on the table is Monsters, Inc. and it’s prequel Monsters University. Last week the trailer for the film came out, and it seems like Pixar has another hit on their hand.
Telling the story of Mike and Sully in their college years, where the two were not only roommates but rivals, the film seems to be a spoof on classic college/high school films of the 80′s. A direction I am loving, a perfect combination of silly childish gag humor and knowledgeable self-aware reference humor.
