Walt Disney World has given yet another one of its monorails the wrapper treatment, this time promoting the upcoming Disney-Pixar film "Monsters University."

The so-called "Monsterail," as Disney fans on social media were quick to dub it, was spotted on the Magic Kingdom Park and Resorts loop Wednesday. The official Disney Parks Blog shared a photo of the wrapper's design.

Unlike the full-graphic "Iron Man 3" monorail wrapper that Disney debuted last month, the "Monsters University" wrapper does not conceal the entire monorail.

Instead, it features Mike, Sulley and other students from Monsters University appearing in the windows of Monorail Teal, some holding banners and pennants showing support for such monstrous fraternities and sororities as "Oozma Kappa," (That frat's slogan: "For a fraternity, we're OK!") The rear of the monorail sports a blue "MU" college letter-style logo.

"Monsters University," a prequel featuring younger, college-age versions of the characters from 2001's "Monsters Inc.," hits theaters Friday, June 21.

This marks the first time two different wrapped monorails are running on the Walt Disney World Monorail System at the same time.
