Monster's University is the Prequel to Monsters, Inc.

My daughter is a big fan of Disney Pixar movies, especially Monsters, Inc., so when we heard there was a prequel to Monster's, Inc, coming out in the summer of 2013, we anxiously awaited the arrival of the movie. Adding to our excited anticipation was the fact that we traveled to Disney World this summer. At Hollywood Studios, Monsters University was being advertised everywhere, and so were the characters. In fact, everywhere we looked there was Monsters everywhere, even the bushes in front of Hollywood Studios had been clipped to look like characters from the movie.

Finally Getting to Watch Monsters University

The movie was released while we were still on vacation, but within a few days of being back in Ohio, we were off to the movies. We were desperate to see how our favorite monsters, Mike and Sulley, voiced by Billy Crystal and John Goodman, became monstrous friends and famous scarers.

Summary of Monsters University

I won't give away all the details, there is no fun in that, but I will give you a quick jest of the movie. Although this is a prequel, it is also a great movie for kids who haven't seen Monsters, Inc., yet. In Monsters University, Mike and Sulley are attending college at Monsters University. Sulley is an overconfident monster who thinks he will breeze through school simply by being a part of a famous Scarer family. Mike on the other hand is an extremely nervous monster who wants more than anything to be a Scarer. Quickly, Mike and Sulley encounter problems with their chosen career path, and, in the process, a deep dislike for one another. However, when unexpected events occur, the two nemeses must team up and work together if either of them is to achieve their goal of becoming a Scarer.

As with most Disney Pixar films, Monsters University is a surefire hit with young and old audiences. This popular 2013 animated movie has a fantastic message, plenty of humor and is sure to be a someday classic.
