I checked to see if we had a thread for the Monsters Inc Prequel but we didn't, so I made it myself
A Love Triangle between Mike, Celia and Sully, Celia having a crush on Sully, Mike having a crush on Celia and Sully flirting a bit with Celia to rub in Mike's jealous face (in case you don't know, Mike and Sully were college rivals)
Monsters Inc is my favorite Pixar Film and I'm feeling optimistic about this.
Please have Outtakes
It's not one of my favorites, but I am looking forward to he prequel. One hung I wanted more of from the first was more of an idea how the monster world worked. In the first movie, we really only saw the factory, the apartment and resteraunt.
I fear for a bit of prequel Character Derailment, to serve this kind of plot. Sully was never interested in Celia in the original, but maybe that's because they're older then and they all changed.
When searching for Wreck-It Ralph images, I came across blurry◊ designs◊ of a younger◊ Mike◊ and◊ Sully!◊ They only look a tiny bit different than how they did in the first film.
Looks fun (also there are other similar teasers using mildly different dialogue for Mike, Billy Crystal really improvised there)
Personally I'm hoping
that the film's framing device that sets up the story of the college could relate to an older Boo like Sully and Mike meeting her when she's older and perhaps explaining some of monster world and their history.
But we'll see

Exactly. We're regressing (time and age wise, that is) from when they're established professionals and best friends with one on the verge of setting a scare record to back when they're in rivals in college. It would be silly if we weren't to expect room for some kind of change between one move and the next.
Okay, I'll admit, the teaser was amusing, even if the narration made it sound so gimmicky.
Personally, I understand why they made a Cars sequel. It was one of their biggest hits with kids and they needed to squeeze all the money from that stone that they could. Monsters, Inc., though? I mean, it's good, but I'd hardly say there's another story that needs to be told there. Maybe making other sketches like "Mike's New Car" I'd be great with, but I'm just kind of seeing another full-length movie in this 'verse as unnecessary. Which isn't to say I think it'll be bad—it might be amazing—but it's still the followup that no one was clamoring for.
I am kind of wondering if they'll bring back some of the other minor characters (e.g.: Roz, those two monsters who were big fans of Mike and Sully) and the villains, though.

Insert witty and clever quip here.
My page, as the database hates my handle.
I don't know if I'm laughing so hard because I genuinely found it hilarious, or if because I'm reliving childhood memories. It's been over ten years since the first movie came out, I was 6, and now I'm 17. Seeing the parody of the first movie in the beginning of the trailer and the crazy monsters again makes me very happy.
It's also coming out the year I go to College. whoaaaa!
While I agree that Pixar should focus on creating new stuff, I do think that the story of how Mike and Sully became such good friends can make for a good movie, especially in Pixar's capable hands. I think I'll like it.
Personally, I don't see this going well... Something just doesn't feel right with it... It feels like one of those forced sequels, like cars 2...
Actually, that's probably close to the reason why.
Cars 2 had an idiotic and very predictable plot, so much so that you could tell how it was going to go before you entered the theatre.
And now Monster University... It's worse because we know how it ends, and how it starts, so all that's left is the middle, which we can figure out with just a little WMG!
Come on Pixar! What happened after you did Toy Story 3?!
