Monsters University (Trailer #1) Review

I am a massive fan of the first film and I am really looking forward to seeing this. I do however have a concern about making it a prequel to the first film as prequels generally have the side effect of undoing the character development of the original film, for example there’s going to be no Bo and Mike and Sully won’t have learned anything and all those characters will be reversed. I do however want to see how they got to be the best in the business at scaring and how the two of them became best friends, I expect hardship to bring them together. The full trailer itself is actually quite good and funny to boot, I really want to see how they are going to handle the university comedy into a kid’s film but if anyone can do it its Pixar and I certainly hope they pull it off.

Monsters University - Banner

Score: A


Ever since college-bound Mike Wazowski (voice of Billy Crystal) was a little monster, he has dreamed of becoming a Scarer—and he knows better than anyone that the best scarers come from Monsters University (MU). But during his first semester at MU, Mike’s plans are derailed when he crosses paths with hotshot James P. Sullivan, “Sulley” (voice of John Goodman), a natural-born Scarer. The pair’s out-of-control competitive spirit gets them both kicked out of the University’s elite Scare Program. To make matters worse, they realize they will have to work together, along with an odd bunch of misfit monsters, if they ever hope to make things right.

3. The Entire Humour of the Film Turbo

Monsters University - Snail Trying to Run

I didn’t find anything I had seen or heard about the film particularly funny and so as this was the first clip of the film to make me laugh and so it had to be included. On a side not I think the film Turbo coming out later this year is essentially this concept for over an hour and it just makes me laugh even more.

2. That’s How the Game is Played

Monsters University - Football Game

I’d watch this American football if it had one little person getting taken out by increasing larger players haha. As well as this I am glad it only has shown some of the film as I am trying to avoid spoilers about this film.

1. Mike and Sully First Meeting

Monsters University - Mike and Sully First Meet

This is essentially the reason I will be going to see this, to find out what the first meeting of Mike and Sully was like and for film sake I hope there is plenty of funny conflict between them. On to other details there are fantastic changes to the appearance and sound of both of the characters making them look younger and sound younger is impressive attention to detail.

Well that’s my views. Now what do you think about this newest trailer?

    I’m looking forward to this too… it’ll be the last Pixar movie me and my son go to see before he and his mother move away… I hope it’s not another Cars 2 LOL

    The first was great and I have no doubt this one will be good as well. Although the cute factor will be out since there is no Bo.
