Next summer, Pixar will release Monsters University, a new animated comedy that shows us just how Mike Wazowski (Billy Crystal) and Sully (John Goodman) from Monsters Inc. became BFF's. Their road to friendship was a rocky one, though, since they couldn't stand each other when they first met. Star Billy Crystal recently spoke about the prequel, revealing that Mike and Sully belong to a fraternity that draws parallels to Revenge of the Nerds.
