Oh my god, oh my god, OH MY GOD! I am so excited, even more excited as I was before. I have been looking forwards to March 21st release of Muppets Most Wanted, because who doesn’t love the Muppets? But now there is brand new news that there will be some pretty awesome characters crashing the party, the cast of Monsters University in a short entitled Party Central.
“When you first meet the Oozma Kappas, they go to their fraternity house and the first thing they say is, Welcome to party central! We haven’t thrown a party yet, but when we do we’ll be ready,’ ” Party Central writer-director Kelsey Mann said to Entertainment Weekly. “I kept telling [MU director] Dan [Scanlon], I really want to see their party. We have to do it in the credits or something.’ Then when the idea of doing a short came up, we were like, That could be the party!'”
If you were lucky enough to attend the D23 expo last year, you may have had the chance to see Party Central, which was originally thought to be a good fit for the DVD release of Monsters University. But instead Disney held onto it to release it before the much anticipated Muppets Most Wanted.
“It fits,” Mann says. “Party Central is a big, epic party, so the bigger the screen and the louder the speakers, the better it is.” And who wouldn’t want to party with the monsters from MU?!?
