A little while ago, I packed up my kids, headed to the theater and sat and watched them laugh and be entertained by Monster’s University! Out on Blu-Ray DVD NOW, this movie was funny, entertaining and a great lesson for kids!
If you ask my kids what their favorite part of this movie is, they will have a hard time telling you. The snail in the beginning who ‘can’t be late for school’, the creepiness of Dean Hardscrabble and the friendship between Sully and Mike are the highlights though.
In fact, to help them get good and ready to now have this awesome movie in house, I printed some FREE Monster University activities!
How fun are these?
After scaring up big laughs in theaters, the in-home release of “Monsters University” opens its doors to the movie in stunning high definition Blu-ray, and provides hours of all-new bonus material, in-depth behind the scenes features, deleted scenes, the animated theatrical short “The Blue Umbrella” and much more. Directed by Dan Scanlon (“Cars,” “Mater and the Ghostlight,” “Tracy”), produced by Kori Rae (“Up,” “The Incredibles,” “Monsters, Inc.”), and written by Dan Scanlon and Robert Baird & Dan Gerson (“Monsters, Inc.”), “MonstersUniversity” marks Pixar’s 14th consecutive film to debut at number one at the box office. 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. “Monsters University” bravely explores themes of self-discovery and the revelations that come with growing up.

I simply think that this movie needs to be in any home collection. The message that friendship, teamwork and learning to live beyond your dreams – even if the dream is not what you thought it would be – is invaluable! My kids and I have movie night set and we can not wait to see it again!
