Billy Crystal talked about Pixar’s Monster University revealing a few more details on the story in a recent interview with EW.
Earlier this summer, teaser trailer showed us how Mike Wazowski (Crystal) and James ‘Sully’ Sullivan (John Goodman) weren’t always the best of friends. Therefore, Crystal revealed some new details about the two monsters college days.
[Mike and Sully] end up in the same fraternity where they have this scare competition — like Greek Games in college. They have to mobilize a group, sort of like Revenge of the Nerds-monsters, and get them ready to be scary.
Crystal also revealed a tiny detail about the roughly the same age of his monstrous character in the prequel to Monsters, Inc.:
They’re 17 and 18 years old in the script. My guy has a retainer, even.
The Monster University film will open on June 21st, 2013 and also features the voices of Steve Buscemi, Dave Foley, Julia Sweeney, Joel Murray, and Peter Sohn.
