In Monsters, Inc. (2001), Pixar Animation Studios introduced audiences to the #1 scaring team, Mike and Sulley, and the monstrous world behind our bedroom closet doors. In this prequel to the much-loved classic, Mike and Sulley meet for the first time at Monsters University—where they are joined by a few familiar faces and a host of delightful new characters—as they seek to attain degrees in scaring.
The book goes behind the scenes with interviews of the film’s many artists and provides the ultimate inside look at the conception and production of this highly anticipated film.
Featuring full-color concept art including character sculpts, color scripts, storyboards, and more, The Art of Monsters University fully explores the process of creating this new and expanded Monsters universe.
The Art For Monsters University ($40) published by Chronicle Books is written by Karen Paik with a preface by John Lasseter and a foreword by Dan Scanlon. The 160 page hardcover will be released on June 11, 2013.
