In case you’re curious who the whimsical-looking dork accepting the Oscar for Best Animated feature during the 85th Academy Awards is, his name is Dan Scanlon. Pixar just announced that he’ll be at the helm of the Monsters Inc prequel Monster University.

Scanlon is an internal draft after having worked in the art department on Cars and directing the short, Mater and the Ghostlight. Though this is Scanlon’s first feature, you have to trust that Pixar will produce another heartwarming, visually-stunning film. And if it isn’t, Scanlon will be run out of Emeryville, CA and banned from ever wearing a Hawaiian shirt again. (Coming Soon)

Pixar is going to do a college movie. Alright, where do I enroll?

At CinemaCon, the true animation domination-ers at Pixar officially announced the Monsters Inc. sequel will be called Monster University. Monsters Inc. is my favorite Pixar movie, so I’m excited that we’ll get another outing with our favorite scream team, even in I am wary of Pixar sequels. Are you excited about Cars 2? Cause it can drive itself into a river for all I care.

The story is supposedly about how Mike Wazowski (Billy Crystal) and James P. Sullivan (John Goodman) began as college rivals at the University of Fear. Both actors are coming back, because besides sopping up our nostalgia for his Oscar hosting days, what else is Billy Crystal up to? The film has a release date scheduled for November 2nd, 2012.

One thing that intrigues me is that the “college movie” genre is typically very loosely structured and gag based, which is very different from Pixar’s tightly crafted narratives and character arcs. My first guess is that this will probably not feel like a G-rated Animal House, Old School or Revenge of the Nerds. Then again, maybe the Pixar crew wants to cut loose and down a keg? Either way, I will pledge Pixar House. (Collider)
