Charlie Day (It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia) is new to franchise, he plays ‘Art’ in the film. The cast-list itself reads off like a Hollywood event, with John Goodman coming back as ‘Sullivan,’ Helen Miran as ‘
Dean Hardscrabble,’ Steve Buscemi returns as ‘Randy’ and Sean Hayes and David Foley as ‘Terri,’ and ‘Terry’.
 
The film was directed by Dan Scanlon who also co-wrote the story and screenplay with Robert L. Baird (screenplay & story) and Daniel Gerson (screenplay & story). Monsters University is set to hit theaters on June 21, 2013.
