MANILA, JUNE 3, 2013 (PHILSTAR) Filipino-American artist Nelson Bohol, a veteran of several Pixar films like Finding Nemo, The Incredibles, Cars and WALL-E, figures in the fun facts released by Disney/Pixar regarding its upcoming animated comedy Monsters University.

Find out what Bohol did to deserve the citation.

Screaming with laughter and oozing with heart, Monsters University is the prequel to the 2001 blockbuster hit Monsters, Inc.

Ever since college-bound Mike Wazowski (voice of Billy Crystal) was a little monster, he has dreamed of becoming a Scarer — and he knows better than anyone than the best Scarers who come from Monsters University (MU).

But during his first semester at MU, Mike’s plans are derailed when he crosses paths with hotshot James P. Sullivan, “Sulley” (voice of John Goodman), a natural-born Scarer.

The pair’s out-of-control competitive spirit gets them both kicked out of the university’s elite Scare Program. To make matters worse, they realize they will have to work together, along with an odd bunch of misfit monsters, if they ever hope to make things right.

Take a load of the following fun trivia on Monsters University:

•Monsters University’s library is called Bohol Hall, named after Bohol who designed it.

•Dean Hardscrabble’s character was modeled after a type of centipede called Scolopendra Gigantea, also known as the Amazonian giant centipede.

•The design of Archie the Scare Pig was inspired by director Dan Scanlon’s dog Carol, a Japanese Chin.

•Don Carlton’s business card lists his address as 1200 Dark Ave. Pixar’s Emeryville address is 1200 Park Ave.

•There were 100,856 storyboards delivered for Monsters University — the highest number on any Pixar film.

•Monsters University was founded in 1313.

•There are six different schools of study at Monsters University: School of Scaring, School of Engineering, School of Liberal Arts & Monstrosities, School of Science, School of Business and School of Aquatics.

•The address of the Oozma Kappa fraternity house is the same address as the house where Scanlon grew up.

Opening in theaters on June 26 in Disney Digital 3D, 2D and regular format, Monsters University is distributed by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures International through Columbia Pictures.


‘Monsters University’ Trailer and Clip: Ain’t No Party Like a Scarer Party Posted on Thursday, May 23rd, 2013 by Angie Han


Odds are, your college experience didn’t involve two-headed frat boys or courses about scaring. In most other respects, though, Mike and Sulley’s first days on campus should look pretty familiar to anyone who’s ever logged time in a dorm room.

In a new clip from Monsters University, the pair have a little roommate spat, because learning to live with other people is never easy. Fortunately, they learn to have good times together as well — the new trailer shows them staying up way too late and partying way too hard to the strains of Swedish House Mafia‘s “Roar.” See both videos after the jump.

Apple has the new trailer in HD.

The Animal House-style partying doesn’t seem like it’d fit into a family film, but Pixar somehow makes it work.

The new clip, which comes from Yahoo, is a much less rowdy. Be sure to keep an ear out for the Princess Bride reference.
