The first featurette for Pixar’s Monsters University has made its way online.  The film goes back to Mike Wazowski (Billy Crystal) and James P. “Sulley” Sullivan’s (John Goodman) college days and shows how the two overcame their differences and became BFFs.  The studio is understandably secretive with regards to their upcoming projects, but in this featurette, director Dan Scanlon provides an extended preview of what fans can expect from the new film, including some pretty intricate story details.  I won’t get into the nitty gritty here on the front page for those that want to remain in the dark, suffice it to say that the film involves a heavy fraternity/sorority element and it certainly sounds like the folks at Pixar are drawing inspiration from classic college comedies.

Hit the jump to take a look at the featurette, which is included on the upcoming 3D Blu-ray release of Monsters IncMonsters University opens on June 21st.

Here’s the official synopsis for Monsters University:

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.
