This may be hard to believe, but Pixar’s fourth film creation “Monsters, Inc.” was released in 2001. Now more than a decade later, the studio has debuted four teaser trailers for the prequel “Monsters University.”
Before they scared children to generate energy, one-eyed green monster Mike (Billy Crystal) and fuzzy blue guy Sulley (John Goodman) went to college. This, apparently, involved Sulley turning Mike, who delivers a different one liner in each of the teasers, into a disco ball.
Like 2010’s “Toy Story 3,” enough time has gone by that the kids who loved “Monsters, Inc.” when it first came out are college-aged. Pixar certainly knows how to tap into our need for nostalgia.
