‘Monsters University’ Posters Promote Higher Learning, Scaring

Mike Wazowski and James P. “Sulley” Sullivan have got plenty of school spirit when it comes to the University of Fear.

A new poster for “Monsters University” shows the two monsters wearing letter jackets and hanging out with big smiles on their faces. Just like old “Monsters, Inc.” times, except we already know that this movie tells the story of how Mike and Sully became friends. Kudos to Disney for having Mike stand on fantastically titled University of Fear text books like “Scareomics” and “I’m Scary, You’re Scary.”

It’s nice that the style of this poster does hearken back to the “Monsters, Inc.” days, since it’s serving as a prequel to that film. “Monsters University” seems like it’s shaping up to be a relatively different movie, but as long as its core remains the same as its predecessor we’ll be happy.

“Monsters University” takes place before the events of “Monsters, Inc.” and follows younger versions Mike Wazowski and James P. “Sulley” Sullivan as they start college at the University of Fear. Judging by what we’ve seen so far, Sulley and Mike didn’t always get along so great.

As part of the movie’s marketing campaign, Disney has launched a website for the University of Fear, and also revealed art that introduces new characters. “Monsters University” is due in theaters on June 21, 2013. It includes the voice talents of Billy Crystal, John Goodman and Steve Buscemi.
