Where did Mowgli come from and why was he left in the jungle? How did Woody end up in Andy’s toybox? What happened to Snow White’s real mother? We all love a good sequel but sometimes it is even more interesting to see how the story really began, long before the first movie. It is not often that you get to look back in time which makes the prequel to Disney‘s Monsters Inc even more exciting. Take a peek in the childhood of Mike Wazowski and be there when he first meets Sulley in Monsters University.
If you’ve seen the 2001 blockbuster Monsters Inc you might think that Mike and Sulley have grown up together and have been best buddies forever. Monsters University take you back to where it all started, with adorable one-eyed monster Mike who has always wanted to become a proper scarer but sadly doesn’t fit the stereotype of a good scarer. He is willing to work hard to achieve his dream and arrives at Monsters University campus determined to be the best despite what everyone says.
Then there is James P. Sullivan (Sulley), blessed with the looks, the sounds and the confidence of a top-notch scarer yet he doesn’t take university that seriously. For Sulley university is all about having fun, crazy parties and being part of the coolest fraternity. The two monsters do not see eye to eye and all this bickering gets both off of them kicked out of the scare program. For a moment it seems all is lost, until an opportunity comes up to win their spot back into the program… All they need to do is win the Scare Games but that sounds easier than it is!
To participate in the Scare Games Mike and Sulley need to create a (winning) team so when they’re teamed up with a bunch of campus outcasts in team Oozma Kappa they fear all is lost. Over time they come to realise that teamwork is what makes you a winner and this strange group of misfits turns into a strong family that uses each player’s talent to get closer to the finish line. Each victory brings them closer to that much wanted ticket back into the program, but will Mike ever become the scarer he dreams to be?
