Everyone crowd in, scrunch together, there we go… it’s time for the class portrait of Monsters University. Walt Disney Studios shared the latest poster for “Monsters University,” and the bleachers are packed to the brim with monsters.
Based on how the monsters are cut off at the left and right edges, I’m wondering if this is the center panel of a triptych? Time will tell… The voice cast features a who’s who of stars including John Goodman (Sulley), Steve Buscemi (Randall Boggs), and Billy Crystal (Mike Wazowski) all reprising their rolls. In addition, actors lending their voice talents include Sir Ben Kingsley, Dame Helen Mirren, Ricky Gervais, Frank Oz, Dave Foley, Michael McKean, David Spade, and Julia Sweeney to name a few.
