As we march inexorably forward and Pixar's fourteenth feature film looms ever more, Entertainment Weekly have today got some exclusive details on who will be lending their voices to Monsters University - as well as some new posters and images from the film!
Joining the returning cast of John Goodman, Billy Cyrtsal and Steve Buscemi, - we already knew - are Oscar winner Helen Mirren, Dave Foley (A Bug's Life), Sean P. Hayes (Will & Grace), Charlie Day (Horrible Bosses), Pixar's Peter Sohn (director, Partly Cloudy; voice of Emile, Ratatouille), Joel Murray (Mad Men), Julia Sweeney (Stuart Little) and Alfred Molina (Spider-Man 2). Today, we learned that a lot of other exciting actors - including some Pixar favourites - are confirmed for the film.

Firefly's Nathan Fillion, The US Office's John Krasinski, and Bonnie Hunt (in her sixth Pixar film, after previously appearing in A Bug's Life, both Cars films and Toy Story 3, as well as a small role in the original Monsters, Inc.) have all been announced for the impressive voice cast. Fillion plays jock supremo Johnny Worthington, Krasinski voices a Monsters, Inc. scaring supervisor, and Hunt takes on the role of a young Mike's teacher.

Another Pixar favourite is unsurprisingly returning; the Emeryville studio's good luck charm, John Ratzenberger, is officially on board - although not reprising his role from Monsters, Inc. as The Abominable Snowman. Instead, Ratzenberger is cast in a slightly more generic role: "a Monsters, Inc. employee."
Also joining the Monsters U voice cast are Aubrey Plaza (Parks and Recreation), Tyler Labine (Tucker & Dale vs. Evil), Bobby Moynihan (Girls) and Beth Behrs (2 Broke Girls). To check out what roles those actors are filling, head on over to EW.com.
