While I attended an expense paid trip by Disney to the Monsters University Premiere, all opinions are 100% my own.
I’m sure with all my postings you know by now that I was able to attend the Monsters University World Premiere in Hollywood back on June 17th. Guess what? This movie is now out TODAY!! So I certainly hope after reading this review, you decide to head on over to your local theater for a viewing.
Monsters University serves as a prequel to the 2001 hit Monsters, Inc. Yes, it’s been 12 years since the comedic duo graced the big screen. While I want to tap my foot and say to Disney Pixar “What took you so long!?!?“, I am beyond thrilled to finally see my favorite Monsters again. Both John Goodman and Billy Crystal returned to voice James P. Sullivan (Sulley) and Mike Wazowski. The film gives you a glimpse of how Sulley and Mike came to meet one another and form the hilarious and endearing friendship you see in Monsters, Inc.
Let’s just say in the beginning of the film, Mike and Sulley aren’t exactly friends. Okay, they aren’t friends at all and kind of annoy each other! Mike is more of the goody-goody know it all, while Sulley is more of the egotistical and lazy type, just riding on the Sullivan name. It isn’t long before their competitive nature against one another gets them both kicked out of the School of Scaring. It is then that these two find themselves having to work together to win the Scare Games to get back into the scaring department. Get it? Got it? Good! Now onto why you really need to see this film…
