Although Pixar isn’t releasing a new animated feature this year, the studio will continue to release a few shorts and TV specials. One of them is Party Central, a new short featuring the characters from Monsters University. The short was originally going to release with The Good Dinosaur, but since it got delayed, we’re get to see the short in front of The Muppets: Most Wanted instead.
In addition to some stills and a clip we got a while ago, Pixar now released a new poster and another clip called “Stealing the Party.”
I love the way Pixar is promoting Party Central, almost like a feature film! And that makes waiting for 2015 more fun. It’s exciting that we got a new poster, but I’m not a big fan that Mike is the central character since I thought this would be a Oozma Kappa short, set after the end of MU. This fun Party Central promotion makes seeing The Muppets: Most Wanted worth even more.
In the short, Mike and Sulley return to Monsters University for a fun-filled weekend with their Oozma Kappa fraternity brothers. The gang is throwing their first party, but no one’s showing up. Luckily for them, Mike and Sulley have come with a plan to make sure ‘Party Central’ is the most epic party the school has ever seen.
Party Central will be shown in theatres in front of Disney’s The Muppets: Most Wanted releasing March 21, 2014.
