“Monsters University” is the latest release by Disney/Pixar. It follows the runaway success of the 2001 movie “Monsters, Inc.” but this time the story goes back and tracks the college relationship of unexpected heroes Mike and Sulley – before they became friends.
Director Dan Scanlon admitted the fun that appears in the movie didn’t exactly mirror reality: “Plenty of partying, plenty of wild, crazy monster stuff going on. They are college students, but they are monsters. But, yes, our college experience was very different. We do a lot of research at Pixar, so we went and looked at colleges all over the country.”
