Disney Pixar have just released a promo video from the Dean at Monsters University where she tries to recruit new students. Watch as you go around campus, and she talks to prospective monsters about the benefits of attending her highly accredited learning facility. She pontificates that “Scariness is the true measure of a monster” and shows us what life is like around the idyllic campus. They focus on being unique and yet they still fit in with a “family of thousands.”
Personally, I can’t wait for this one to come out. Goodman and Crystal were such an amazing team on Monsters Inc and they really made the movie special just with their voices. (Pixar obviously did all the visual heavy lifting.)
You can head on over to the University’s website for more info about the faculty, alumni, you can shop in the campus store, check out the academic calendar and curriculum. They even offer prospective student suggested reading like “I’m Scary, You’re Scary by Claws MacGuffin” or “Scare Theory Volume. VII by Karl G. Eyegout“.
They also offer the University’s “Scaring Program Overview“: “Since MU’s founding, we’ve offered only one program — Scaring — a tested and proven path to developing the most elite scarers and in world.
Undergraduates receive a broad overview of scaring theory and training in the classic techniques and approaches to fear. Graduate and doctoral programs allow students to participate in the intense study and specialization in particular aspects of scaring, with the aid of a close mentorship with a faculty member.”
Monsters University opens on June 21th in the US and July 12th in the UK. Check out this new promo trailer below and let us know, will you be enrolling?
