Building some buzz for its upcoming film, Monsters University, Pixar has released a new spot that mimics the upbeat, optimistic ads that many colleges put on the air during their teams' football outings, paired with an immersive website that touts the opportunities at the fictional school for non-humans that will be the setting for the June 2013 film.
The CG animated feature, a prequel to the 2001 hit Monsters, Inc., takes a look at the relationship between Mike and Sulley during their days at the University of Fear.
Boasting sections that detail campus events, financial aid, student testimonials and even scientific studies, MonstersUniversity.com is a substantial early campaign that positions the movie for both a teenage and older audience.

For the 143rd year in a row, Monster News & Report has given MU the top University ranking in their annual scaring issue. The scaring faculty take pride in a rigorous classroom experience, backed with centuries of institutional academic research."
