I am SO excited that Monsters University is finally out in theaters! Both Mike and I are movie buffs and the first movie we ever took Sam to was the re-release of Monsters Inc. in 3D last December. Neither of us had seen it before and, together with Sam, we all fell in love.
Since then, we have been an anxiously anticipated release of Monsters University. I’m a huge fan of Billy Crystal (if you love him too, you should listen to this interview I recently heard him do with Jian Ghomeshi on Q), so it’s exciting to enjoy his character again!
Here’s a little more about the movie:
Ever since college-bound Mike Wazowski (voice of Billy Crystal) was a little monster, he has dreamed of becoming a Scarerand he knows better than anyone that the best Scarers come from Monsters University (MU). But during his first semester at MU, Mikes plans are derailed when he crosses paths with hotshot James P. Sullivan, Sulley (voice of John Goodman), a natural-born Scarer. The pairs out-of-control competitive spirit gets them both kicked out of the Universitys 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.
Has your family watched the movie yet? We are going this week! Before we go, Sam is enjoying these fun Monsters University coloring projects, which are FREE to download! (We’re doing the memory cards tomorrow.) Click the links below to download and print.
