Ever since Mike Wazowski first dreamt of being a professional scarer he has known that the best scarers come from the prestigious Scare Program at Monsters University. Unfortunately college life doesn’t start off as smoothly as Mike planned when he crosses paths with hotshot James P. ‘Sulley’ Sullivan, a natural-born scarer with a flair for the frightening.
The pair’s rivalry gets them kicked out of the University’s elite Scare Program and they soon realise their ticket back in is teamwork. Combining their talents the duo join up with a band of campus misfits and form the Oozma Kappa fraternity to compete in Monster’s University’s campus Scare Games- the only way to win their way back into the Scare Program!
One of my favourite animated movies has always been Monsters Inc. It’s the perfect mix of adult humor and kiddy fun. So when Monsters University was released at the cinemas I was so excited to see it. Of course, life got in the way and we never made it there.
So, when Disney and Mango contacted me with the opportunity to review it of course I said yes! And we all know Lily wouldn’t say to another movie!
We also somehow didn’t seem to have a copy of Monsters Inc yet so Mango sent me a copy of that too. Lily came home from school on Friday and was so excited to find them sitting on her chair waiting for her. As I set about getting dinner ready she put on Monsters University to watch. Unfortunately she’d had a big week and hadn’t had a nap at school that day so she fell asleep halfway through – 6pm! She woke a few hours later so we put the movie back on while she ate some dinner and she loved it.
She watched Monsters Inc the next day. I think it’s great that she watched the prequel first; it would be great to be able to watch them for the first time that way. Of course, there are lots of little hints and inferences to Monsters Inc in Monsters University but it’s great to get that backstory.
I asked Lily what she thought of both movies and she loved them. I thought she may get a little scared in parts but she seemed fine. When I asked her what was her favourite part of Monsters University (she’s getting better at answering these questions) she said “the part where the big boy scares the little kids”. So yeah, I don’t think she was too scared! She also said her other favourite part was when the big monster said “roaaaaaarrrrrrrrrrrr!!!!”
Monsters University carries on the great humor and fun of Monsters Inc and is definitely fun for the whole family. Plus it has the voice of Nathan Fillion! It was released on Blu-Ray, DVD and digital on November 13, 2013.
