Muppets Most Wanted to be Preceded by a New Monsters University Short


Originally planned to precede screenings of Disney•Pixar’s The Good Dinosaur, a new Monsters University short film, “Party Central,” will now arrive even sooner. EW reports that the short (which screened for fans at last year’s D23 Expo) will show before Muppets Most Wanted when it hits theaters on March 21. You can also check out the first still from “Party Central” below!

”When you first meet the Oozma Kappas,” writer-director Kelsey Mann tells the outlet, “they go to their fraternity house and the first thing they say is, ‘Welcome to party central! We haven’t thrown a party yet, but when we do we’ll be ready,’ I kept telling Dan [Scanlon], ‘I really want to see their party. We have to do it in the credits or something.’ Then when the idea of doing a short came up, we were like, ‘That could be the party!’”

“Party Central” will feature the return of Billy Crystal and John Goodman as the respective voices of Mike and Sulley along with a number of other familiar voice talents from the world of Monsters University.
