‘Monsters University’ Japanese Trailer Shows Young Mike Wazowski, Plot Points

MONSTERS UNIVERSITY

It’s in Japanese (naturally), but this version of the trailer for Disney/Pixar’s upcoming film Monsters University gives a whole new dimension to the story we’ve come to know so far. In it, we see a very young Mike Wazowski in an apparent field trip to the Scare Floor at Monsters Inc. in which young Mike receives a gift that starts to shape his entire future.

There are also additional scenes which Mike appears to meet Sulley for the first time, as well as the scene in which Dean Hardscrabble (voiced by Helen Mirren) appears to be kicking the future pals out of the esteemed Scarer program.

‘Oz the Great and Powerful’ New Stills Feature Kansas Characters (Minor Spoilers)

Girl in Wheelchair (Joey King) Ph: Merie Weismiller Wallace, SMPSP..©Disney Enterprises, Inc. All Rights Reserved..

We have just a few more days before Oz the Great and Powerful debuts in theaters nationwide on March 8, 2013 and so far we’ve seen plenty of images of the mystical land and its inhabitants. Today, Walt Disney Studios has decided to share with us stills of a couple of characters from Oscar Digg/Oz’s world in Kansas, where he performs in the traveling Baum Brothers Circus. While we have a photo of the sideshow Strongman (portrayed by Tim Holmes), we also have a photo of a young lady who bears a striking resemblance to actress Joey King. How’s that? You know how the classic 1939 film The Wizard of Oz ends (the book itself does not share the same ending in the slightest), so it’s only fair that you know just how this prequel begins. It’s already been shared that Zach Braff, who voices Finley, also serves as Oz’s assistant in Kansas. In fact, there may be even another friendly face or two in the opening scenes, so you’ll want to keep an eye out.
