In our house the kids couldn’t wait for school to be over, but they were more than happy to head off to “scaring school” at Monsters University. In Disney/Pixar’s fun new prequel to Monsters Inc., we follow Mike Wazowski (Billy Crystal) and Sulley (John Goodman) back to their early days as brand new students of scaring at Monsters University.
While Mike Wazowski is earnest and studious, Sulley thinks he can coast by on his natural scariness and his strong family name. But when both characters nearly lose their chance at being part of the prestigious Scaring Program, they have to band up with a team of unlikely misfits at the Oozma Kappa to prove their ability to hang tough and be successful in the scaring world.
Lots of fun campus jokes are scattered throughout the movie, making it a fun experience for both kids and parents. It’s a cute, light-hearted, not-too-scary movie that’ll please just about everyone. (Our 9-year-old kid declared it even better than Monsters Inc.!)
Need more temptation? Check out the preview here:
Monsters University hits the theaters on June 21 – so just as school gets out, you’ll be ready to start hitting the (scaring) books.
Blogger disclosure: Disney/Pixar treated me and a family member to a screening of the movie; I did note receive compensation for this post.
