The first trailer for Monsters Inc. 3D has been released. Since the smashing success of the 3D re-release of The Lion King, Disney has committed to bringing a number of the studio’s classics back to theaters in the 3D format. Pixar’s bounty of films is a natural fit, and in addition to Finding Nemo 3D later this month we’ll see the return of the loveable duo of Mike and Sully from Monsters. Inc this December. The Pete Docter-directed comedy ranks high on my personal list of Pixar favorites so I’m jazzed to see it on the big screen once again. Moreover, the engagement will act as a nice refresher before the release of Pixar’s prequel, Monsters University, next summer.
Hit the jump to watch the trailer. Monsters Inc. 3D opens on December 19th.

Here’s the synopsis for Monsters Inc.:
“Monsters, Inc.,” one of Disney-Pixar’s most beloved and visually imaginative feature films ever, returns to the big screen to delight a whole new generation of audiences and fans alike, this time in stunning 3D. The now-classic Academy Award(R)-winning animated comedy adventure “Monsters, Inc.” is set in Monstropolis, a thriving company town where monsters of all shapes and sizes reside. Lovable Sulley (voiced by John Goodman) and his wisecracking best friend Mike Wazowski (voiced by Billy Crystal) are the top scare team at Monsters, Inc., the largest scream-processing factory. The main power source in the monster world is the collected screams of human children–and at Monsters, Inc., an elite team of scarers is responsible for gathering those precious natural resources.
