Monster's University

Recommended Posts

Seeing this trailer really gives me hope for what Pixar has to offer with our two favorite monsters. And taking alook at the summary kinda reminds me of early pitches of the oringinal's story where Mike was working for Randall and was often annoyed by Sulley.

Isn't it "Monsters University", like, without " ' " ? Just wondering.

Anyway, really looking forward to this. I loved the first movie, and I hope this will be just as good. I would've prefered the director of the first one directing this as well, but oh well, you can't have everything.

By the way, anyone noticed Mike's "teddy monster" which he and Sulley used in Monsters Inc to calm down Boo? biggrin.png

While I agree with Noir that Monsters Inc didn't really need another movie, this is still going to be welcomed with open arms. I'm super glad they went for the prequel route too, it wouldn't have been right to follow up the existing movie and have the the two and Boo go on another adventure for the hell of it - or worse - show her grown up.

I'm excited for this only in the vein of it being a Pixar movie, and I admit that the teaser was funny, but I will never forget that the directors used to stress that they wouldn't make continuations of their films unless the left it open as such, unless they themselves considered it necessary, and in little over a decade they're doing just the opposite. And coupled with the strange restructuring that's going on now inside of Pixar that's looking like an impediment to the tightly-coiled brain-trust that allowed past films to be as good as they are (Lasseter being everywhere and exhausted on account of running Disney now, Stanton and Bird doing their own thing, farming out DTV work to their new Canadian studio (fuck Planes; seriously), bringing on a multitude of writers for projects now, etc.), call me cynical and disappointed with the fact that this film even exists. It just feels antithetical to the Pixar I knew from my childhood and believed in.

I admit I wasn't too thrilled with the idea at first. Pixar doing a prequel just didn't seem right, as I'm used to them always bringing something completely new to the table (with the exception of the Toy Story series and, unfortunately, Cars 2). On top of that, the whole premise of Mike and Sulley in college seemed kinda lame.

But this trailer makes it seem like it's gonna have the heart and humor of the other Pixar films, and it looks very enjoyable, so I don't really have a problem with it anymore.

Plus, it looks much more Pixar-y than Brave, which I am surprisingly uninterested in.

Looks great, and I'm really looking forward to it. Though I can't shake the feeling that an original Pixar movie about college life rather than one using existing characters would've been cooler. Same with how I think an original Pixar Spy movie would've been cooler than one set in the Cars universe.

Why did Cars 2 suck so much then?

Cars 2 wasn't that bad, c'mon. :/

Anyways, I'm really looking forward to this movie. Monsters inc is probably one of my favorite Pixar movies next to Wall-e and I really love to world of the Monsters, so It'll be great to see more of that in this movie. Can't wait for it!
