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.

"[Mike and Sully] end up in the same fraternity where they have this scare competition - like Greek Games in college. They have to mobilize a group, sort of like Revenge of the Nerds-monsters, and get them ready to be scary."

The actor also added that these characters are still at an awkward stage in their lives when they enter the university.

"They're 17 and 18 years old in the script. My guy has a retainer, even."
