Mike Wazowski wraps up for a new Monsters University poster

Monsters University has unveiled a brand new poster to remind us that classes will be in session in summer 2013.

The Pixar prequel follows Mike Wazowski and James P. ‘Sulley’ Sullivan in their time as frat boys at Monsters U, before they became Monstropolis’ top scare team.

The official synopsis hints at some odd-couple clashing between the pair:

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.

In the new one-sheet, Wazowki’s kitted out in his campus colours. Despite his best efforts to keep warm, there’s no hiding his irrepressible grin and giant, singular eye.
