Despite delivering their first original property in two years this week with the disappointing Brave, Pixar are going back to the well again next summer, with a prequel to their hit Monsters, Inc. Dan Scanlon is directing Monsters University, which sees Mike and Sulley back at college learning the ropes of the job we already know they excel at. The studio has debuted four slightly different teasers today, which give us little hint at the plot, only that pranks will occur.

Monsters University arrives on June 21, 2013.
