Monsters University – Gets A New UK Trailer, Website, and Message From the Dean

Posted on 16 February 2013 by

Until just recently about all we’ve gotten from Disney/Pixar surrounding Monsters University, the prequel to Monsters, Inc., was a teaser trailer.  I was beginning to wonder if we’d ever see a full trailer before the movie makes its premiere on Friday, June 21, 2013.  Thankfully the first of what I hope to be several full-length [...]
