Meet the younger Mike and Sulley in a teaser for the Disney/Pixar prequel to Monsters Inc
Monsters University tells the story of how Mike Wazowski and Sulley became friends during their college years at scare school.
Pixar started designing younger versions of the two main characters in 2008and development work has been going on ever since then!
The difference in the characters is subtle but obvious when you see the 2001 versions: (That’s right, 2001, can you believe that Monsters Inc is over a decade old?) Mike is smaller with bigger eyes and less freckles, and Sully’s thinner, with shiny fur and rounder eyes.
There for four versions of the animation, with slightly different lines, each improvised by the voice talent, Billy Crystal.
