'Monsters University' First Look: Pranks, Parties and a Disco Ball

John Goodman, Billy Crystal and Steve Buscemi return in this prequel to "Monsters Inc."

“Monsters University” is more than a year away from its theatrical debut, but Pixar offered a taste of what's to come on Tuesday with a series of teaser trailers anyway.

Billy Crystal and John Goodman are back as Mike and Sulley in this prequel to the 2001 smash “Monsters Inc.” — only this time, as the name suggests, they are back in college.

Pranks, parties and a disco ball play a central role, offering kids an alternate take on days of scholarly hedonism. Or frat parties and finals, if you prefer.

"Monsters University," the first prequel in Pixar history, debuts in June 2013.
