Monsters inc is one of my favorite animated films. Really happy they are finally telling more stories with these characters!
I had no idea they were making this, thanks for sharing. I love these guys.
I'm jazzed that they made this; I had no idea they were working on it. My only cocern is that as a prequel it eliminates the inclusion of "Boo", whom I greatly enjoyed.
Double post, sorry.
It's kinda funny that I saw the original Monsters inc when I was a kid and I'm now actually in University for this new film. Still going to go watch it of course. That teaser reminds me quite a bit of some of the stuff that's gone on in halls the past year.
Caught the Thursday night screening, I had a great time! Movie has great humor for both kids and adults. Nothing incredibly original about the story, a lot of it is similar to Old School and Revenge of the Nerds, but there's a small twist at the end to throw off the standard college movie formula. Mike and Sulley as usual played out their budding friendship really well, and Art stole the show among the support cast. My only beef with the sequel is that it lacks the heart of Monsters Inc and some of Pixar's best films, but other than that it's a fun family-friendly summer movie. Huge improvement over Pixar's last effort in Brave, that's for sure.
PS: I was not a fan of the animated short - Blue Umbrella - attached to this film. Kinda reminded me of Paperman but nowhere near as good.
As for the movie itself? No Boo = 60% less heart. I did enjoy bits of it, but it was missing something really big.
I REALLY enjoyed this film. I went with my whole family last night, and every one of us ( ages 6 to 42 ) loved it. I think it's much funnier than the original, although it did lack the heart and story of Monsters Inc. Disney has impressed me yet again!
I saw this film Thursday. I thought it was going to be very cheesy and more kid-orientated humor, but i actually enjoyed it and I thought they did a good job with it.
