Movie Monday: Monsters University

I’ve always had a soft spot for Pixar films, so I was excited to learn the studio was releasing a prequel to 2001’s Monsters, Inc. Monsters University, out June 21st, follows James P. Sullivan (voiced by John Goodman) and Mike Wazowski (voiced by Billy Crystal) as college students joining a fraternity and trying to get into the university’s prestigious scare program. This premise guarantees plenty of laughs and sight gags related to higher education.

 

Monsters University

In keeping with the college theme, Disney Pixar released a promotional website, cleverly structured like a university web page. The site includes information about academic programs (in which students can “excel in the art of extreme creepiness”), dining plans, athletics, and other aspects of campus life. There are even student and faculty profiles and a video message from the dean (voiced by Helen Mirren). If you need a break from actual college websites, take a look.
