With the full cast finally revealed for Pixar prequel Monsters University, Disney has released a new trailer onto the web that is packed with new footage, courtesy of Yahoo! Movies.

Ever since college-bound Mike Wazowski (voiced by Billy Crystal) was a little monster, he has dreamed of becoming a Scarer—and he knows better than anyone that the best Scarers come from Monsters University. But during his first semester at MU, Mike’s plans are derailed when he crosses paths with hotshot James P. Sullivan, “Sulley” (voiced by John Goodman), a natural-born Scarer. The pair’s out-of-control competitive spirit gets them both kicked out of the University’s elite Scare Program. To make matters worse, they realize they will have to work together, along with an odd bunch of misfit monsters, if they ever hope to make things right.

The new trailer features furry, slimy spins on typical college-related humor: Animal House-style frat hijinks, bad cafeteria food, intimidating co-eds, pompous faculty, and jokes about slugs. Watch it, below:

Directed by Dan Scanlon (Cars, Mater and the Ghostlight, Tracy) and produced by Kori Rae (Up, The Incredibles, Monsters, Inc.), the voice cast for Monsters University also includes Steve Buscemi, Franz Oz, Dave Foley, Charlie Day, Nathan Fillion, Bobby Moynihan, Julia Sweeney, Aubrey Plaza, John Krasinski, Bonnie Hunt, Helen Mirren and John Ratzenberger.

The film opens in U.S. theaters on June 21, 2013, and will be shown in 3D in select theaters.
