The Monsters Inc meet-n-greet located near the Backlot Tour is set to get an update for its characters to match the new Monsters University film that is opening this summer.

Further details will be announced later this week during a press event at Walt Disney World as part of a larger cross-promotion between the Disney Parks and the upcoming Pixar film.
