Monster’s University, the prequel to Monster’s Inc. premiered yesterday and we enjoyed the evening at the movies. We celebrated the occasion by wearing our matching t-shirts with a tribute to Mike. Suffice it to say, they were a hit, just like the movie!

No spoilers here, just in case you haven’t seen the movie yet. But look forward to the Pixar short of The Blue Umbrella before the movie which is a test of new technique and technology. Pixar has been treating movie goers to these wonderful shorts since the premier of A Bug’s Life.

What movie goers do learn is how the rivalry between Randall and Sully came to be which is an “ah ha” moment during the flick. Roz makes an appearance with her distinctive voice which is a delight. And, that IS the voice of Helen Mirren!

Just like any Disney movie, there are values and morals lessons throughout—cheating is bad, honesty is good even it has consequences, hard work is good, teamwork is better than working alone—and don’t leave anyone on your team behind, and your dreams really can come true.
Disney and Pixar have done it again with Monster’s University which is sure to be a classic. The animation, story, humor, and great characters make Monster’s University a hit! I can’t also help but notice a few nods to Harry Potter. Let me know if you see them too!
