First Look: Monsters U Short Party Central; Now Attached to Muppets Most Wanted

Pixar have released the first look at their upcoming Monsters University-based short film, Party Central, which was formerly going to play before The Good Dinosaur in theatres. Now that The Good Dinosaur has been pushed back to November 2015, Party Central will play with Muppets Most Wanted on 21st March.

Above you can see the Oozma Kappa gang looking a little bit bummed out. Check out why in the plot synopsis (via Disney Insider) below.
When the Oozma Kappa fraternity brothers throw their first party and no one shows up, Mike and Sulley return to Monsters University with a plan to make sure it’s the most epic party the school has ever seen. It is directed by Kelsey Mann, the story supervisor from Monsters University, and features the following voice talent: Billy Crystal, John Goodman, Peter Sohn, Julia Sweeney, Charlie Day, Nathan Fillion, Dave Foley, Sean Hayes, Bobby Moynihan, and Joel Murray.
"Fortunately," adds Entertainment Weekly. "They have some extra inter-dimensional doors handy, which they put to creative use (we won’t spoil how here) to get the party rocking."

The mention of Nathan Fillion and Bobby Moynihan means we'll be seeing their douchey ROR characters, Johnny Worthington and Chet Alexander, in the short as well. It's worth noting, too, that the previous Muppets film also had a Pixar short before it, the Toy Story short Small Fry.



  1. Without a doubt we're excited - we're just happy that we'll catch some Pixar in 2014! It seemed silly to hold this short until 2015 it if was already wrapped up!

  2. Oooh - another TV special would be fantastic - I'll keep my fingers crossed for that one for sure!
