About Disney·Pixar'sMonsters University

Ever since college-bound Mike Wazowski (voice of Billy Crystal) was a little
monster, he has dreamed of becoming a Scarer—and he knows better than anyone
that the best Scarers come from Monsters University (MU). But during his first
semester at MU, Mike’s plans are derailed when he crosses paths with hotshot
James P. Sullivan, “Sulley” (voice of John Goodman), a natural-born Scarer.
The pair’s out-of-control competitive spirit gets them both kicked out of the
University’s elite Scare Program. To make matters worse, they realize they
will have to work together, along with an odd bunch of misfit monsters, if
they ever hope to make things right. Screaming with laughter and oozing with
heart, Disney•Pixar’s “Monsters University” is directedby Dan Scanlon
(“Cars,” “Mater and the Ghostlight,” “Tracy”), produced byKori Rae(“Up,”
“The Incredibles,” “Monsters, Inc.”) and features music from future Rock and
Roll Hall of Fame inductee and award-winning composer Randy Newman (“Monsters,
Inc.,” “Toy Story 3”). Check out disney.com/MonstersU, like us at
facebook.com/PixarMonstersUniversity, and follow us on
twitter.com/disneypixar. Rated G by the MPAA, the film opens in U.S.theaters
on June 21, 2013, and will be shown in 3D in selecttheaters.
