‘Monsters University’ Teaser Poster Released

'Monsters University' Teaser PosterFeaturing text books including Scareonomics and a spin on the classic self-help book, I’m OK, You’re OK (titled I’m Scary, You’re Scary), the new teaser poster for Disney/Pixar’s Monsters University was unveiled earlier today exclusively by Fandango.

The article also shares a few more details about the film but basically confirms an earlier report of ours that Mike Wazowski and Sulley do in fact join the Oozma Kappa (speaking of OK) fraternity.

Mike Wazowski and James P. Sullivan are an inseparable pair, but that wasn’t always the case. From the moment these two mismatched monsters met they couldn’t stand each other. Monsters University unlocks the door to how Mike and Sulley overcame their differences and became the best of friends.
