Here’s the second trailer for Pixar’s upcoming Monsters University. The movie tells the tale of how James P. Sullivan (Sully) and Mike Wazowski met in college. As a total mark for Monsters, Inc., I’m super looking forward to this film. Monsters, Inc. is my second-favorite Pixar movie and, despite its success, I believe it’s woefully underrated. Its combination of humor, charm, and heart is incredible.
The trailer covers the first meeting of the two monsters and shows how they were rivals in college. Prime gags include a snail monster trying to get to class at a glacial pace, a monster dorm party, and a monster football game. The trailer gets bonus points for using Motley Crue’s “Kickstart My Heart.” While I didn’t get a sense of the movie’s “heart,” the humor looks fantastic, the animation looks superb, and I’m sure I’ll get warm fuzzies after watching it. It is a Pixar film, after all.
