Ever since college-bound Mike Wazowski (voice of Billy Crystal) was a little monster, he has dreamed of becoming a Scarer—and he knows better than anyone that the best Scarers come from Monsters University (MU). But during his first semester at MU, Mike’s plans are derailed when he crosses paths with hotshot James P. Sullivan, “Sulley” (voice of John Goodman), a natural-born Scarer. The pair’s out-of-control competitive spirit gets them both kicked out of the University’s elite Scare Program. To make matters worse, they realize they will have to work together, along with an odd bunch of misfit monsters, if they ever hope to make things right. “Monsters University” bravely explores themes of self-discovery and the revelations that come with growing up.
On October 29, 2013 Disney Pixar released Monsters University on the 4-Disc Ultimate Collector’s Edition Blu-ray 3D Combo Pack, 3-Disc Collector’s Edition Blu-ray Combo Pack, 3-Disc Blu-ray Combo Pack, DVD and On-Demand.
It has been 12 years since Monster’s Inc came out in theaters. My family fell in love with the adorable monsters who loved to scare little kids. Especially Sully and Mike. I did not know it back then but did you know that the process to produce the movie took five years? It was definitely worth it because we watched it over and over again.
My entire family was excited when Monsters University arrived in the mail. Only Kayla and Jazz went to see it when it was in the theaters. It was a great idea to make a movie explaining how Sully and Mike met and became a part of Monsters Inc.
Every since Mike was an itty bitty monster he knew he wanted to become a “scarer”. He visited Monster’s Inc on a school field trip and got the chance to see an “scarer” in action and that became his goal. From the moment he set foot on the university grounds to study at the School of Scaring, he studied hard and was all work and no play.
The first day in class, Mike meets Sully who is a natural when it comes to be a scarer. His dad is know for being scary and Sully expects to follow in his footsteps. It turns out to be harder than he thinks.
This movie had us laughing all throughout and it had a great message as well. You can’t do it on your own and teamwork is important. The picture quality of the movie was so bright and beautiful, it was easy to become totally engrossed in it. The whole concept of college was done wonderfully. There were fraternities, sororities, dorm rooms and more. A lot of attention was paid to the details.
The is a group of monsters that we lovingly call the misfits because they all were kicked out of The School of Scaring. I love the great attitudes they had throughout the movie while still being themselves.
After the movie finished, we spent a lot of time watching the bonus features. Kayla was surprised at how much work went into making an animated feature. The Pixar staff is dedicated and works really hard to get the movie just right. Our favorite part was watching the different departments for Pixar participate in their own version of the Scare Games. The Scare Games is a competition with different events to put a monsters scaring skills to the test. After each event, the last team is eliminated.
