Monsters University 3D is a film full of humour, surprises and action that will entertain both adults and children alike. The prequel to Monsters Inc., the film follows the story of how Mike Wazowski (Billy Crystal) decides to become a scarer and how he forms an unlikely friendship with James P. Sullivan (John Goodman).
Another fantastic 3D from Disney Pixar, it adds to the original movie as you begin to understand more about the characters from Monsters Inc., like why Randall (Steve Buscerni) has such a chip on his shoulder. You are also introduced to a whole host of new monsters, such as the cute Scott ‘Squishy’ Squibbles (Peter Sohn) and the funny acrobatic Art (Charlie Day).
The best part about the film is the way it grabs the children’s attention and keeps them enthralled for the entire film even though, at 110 minutes, I would consider it a long children’s movie. The film has plenty of surprises and little life lessons along the way. There are a couple of scary moments, with Dean Hardscrabble (Helen Mirren) definitely a monster of nightmares.
Similar to Monsters Inc., Monsters University has humour for both adults and children with laugh out loud moments. Disney Pixar films are a huge success among parents and children alike and this prequel does not disappoint.
Monsters University will be released In Ireland on 12th July and has already had huge success in the US. It’s a film that you will watch over and over again and is sure to be a hit with kids during their summer holidays!
