Walt Disney Studios and Pixar Animation Studios have provided us with even more fun facts from their upcoming prequel, Monsters University, which you can read below.
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 that the best Scarers come from Monsters University. 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.
As we have reported previously, starting June 4, you can purchase the ‘Roar’ digital EP which features the title track from Monsters University along with remixes by MC Yogi and Style of Eye.
Today we get our first listen of the track courtesy, which you will find embedded below.
The ‘Roar’ track along with its remixes will be available for digital download on June 4 according to the listing, while the film’s soundtrack will be available June 18, just a few days prior to the film’s theatrical release on June 21.
It’s been a monstrous year for NASCAR racer Jimmie Johnson who will be heading to Delaware this weekend after recently helping distribute supplies to victims of the Oklahoma tornadoes. Johnson will be racing to break records at the Sprint Cup’s Dover International Speedway, aka ‘The Monster Mile.’ When it comes to the Sprint Cup, the future NASCAR Hall of Famer has at least tied, if not holds all the records at all seven tracks and this weekend could make Johnson Dover’s winningest driver yet.
