A new trailer has just debuted for next month's Pixar prequel "Monsters University," which revolves around the story of how Mike (Billy Crystal) met Sulley (John Goodman) in the monster-fied version of higher education, going from bitter rivals to the best of friends. The trailer is typically energetic, made even more so by the music – a brand new dance track created by Swedish House Mafia collaborators Axwell and Sebastian Ingrosso called "Roar," a song that sounds like it wouldn't be out of place at the next frat party.

Monsters University

A new trailer has just debuted for next month's Pixar prequel "Monsters University," which revolves around the story of how Mike (Billy Crystal) met Sulley (John Goodman) in the monster-fied version of higher education, going from bitter rivals to the best of friends. The trailer is typically energetic, made even more so by the music – a brand new dance track created by Swedish House Mafia collaborators Axwell and Sebastian Ingrosso called "Roar," a song that sounds like it wouldn't be out of place at the next frat party.

The trailer mostly features clips that we've seen in other trailers for the movie, but the shortness of the clip and the throbbing music that is backing it gives the footage an even more freewheeling feeling. It's clear from these early promotional materials that the breakout monster seems like it's going to be Art, a purple, Slinky-like weirdo voiced by Charlie Day (who also co-stars in this summer's similarly monster-filled "Pacific Rim"). Easily the biggest laugh in the new trailer is when he says, "I can't go back to jail." This looks like it is going to have an amazing energy and the amount of new monsters created for the film is staggering. One other note about the footage: there's a sequence where they're leaping across what looks like frat house rooftops and you can see the large industrial complex from "Monsters Inc." rising up out of the background, almost like the school was built in Monsters Inc's shadow. We wonder how many callbacks to the original will be made in "Monsters University." Probably so many it's scary.

But back to the music: the track will be released as a single on June 4th, in a package that includes remixes from Style of Eye and British producer Yogi. Axwell said about the track: "We wanted to keep it funny, funky and at the same time a bit cool with a hint of monsters in it." "Monsters University" director Dan Scanlon said, "We really wanted to capture the college feel in ‘Monsters University. And music is a big part of that." Keep in mind that hard rock demi-gods Mastadon also contributed a song to the soundtrack, which hits on June 18th.

"Monsters University" will undoubtedly scare up big business starting on June 21st.
