‘Monsters University’ extended preview trailer released – watch

Warning: this preview promo contains some potential plot spoilers

An extended preview trailer for Pixar‘s Monsters University has been released – warning it contains plot spoilers.

In the trailer, which you can watch by scrolling down the page and clicking, director Dan Scanlon talks us through the main plot for the sequel to the successful 2001 hit animated film Monsters, Inc.

Set 10 years before the original title, the film promises to investigate the relationship between Sulley (John Goodman) and Mike (Billy Crystal), and show viewers inside their life as they attend university.

Although the pair go on to be best friends – this isn’t a plot spoiler, we know that already from Monsters, Inc – they began their relationship as enemies, with both competing to earn a place in the scare programme.

However, after they both fail to gain entry to the prestigious scare programme, they must work together to find a way to gain acceptance. What follows is a college caper movie where new friendships are formed and enemies are made.

Monsters University arrives in UK cinemas on July 12.
