Disney Is Gaining a New Generation of Scarers

I love Disney movies! I grew up watching The Little Mermaid and Beauty and the Beast as a child and fell in love with their magical worlds. The love of Disney even filtered down to my little sister (she’s twenty-one) who’s jealous I get to review Disney movies before they hit theaters. Needless to say when Disney releases a new film, this family can’t wait to see it!

Monsters University PremiereTheater or Redbox?

Disney invited myself and a number of Las Vegas Bloggers to pre-screen the newest Disney Pixar film Monsters University in order to share with our readers what we thought of the new movie coming out June 21st.

As a family, we really enjoyed Monsters University! Although there were a few slow parts that may not hold the youngest “scarers” attention, in all it was a great movie for the whole family.

I like that Disney did not give away most of the movie in its trailers, there is nothing worse than walking out of a movie thinking “Why did I pay to go? Everything was in the previews!”

With lively fun and a heart-warming plot children of all ages can grasp, it is a must see on the RECESS summer movie list! Some parents may cringe at seeing another kids movie, however I was entertained throughout. Disney delivered another bunch of crazy-cool characters my kids will be talking about and asking to see more of.

3D or Skip It?

It seems like all new kids films are 3D or even 4D now. Personally I tend to skip the “experience”, unless it’s a Disney Digital 3D movie. Disney Digital 3D is done expertly well; I forget we have the glasses on and I have yet to get a headache or eye strain from a Disney Digital 3D film.


That being stated, you’re not missing out too much if you go the traditional route on Monsters University. It’s not like Wreck It Ralph, where it was a must see in Disney Digital 3D!


Mike Wazowski and James P. Sullivan are an inseparable pair, but that wasn’t always the case. From the moment these two mismatched monsters met they couldn’t stand each other. “Monsters University” unlocks the door to how Mike and Sulley overcame their differences and became the best of friends.

Screaming with laughter and fun, “Monsters University” is directed by Dan Scanlon (“Cars,” “Mater and the Ghostlight,” “Tracy”) and produced by Kori Rae (“Up,” “The Incredibles,” “Monsters, Inc.”). The film opens in U.S. theaters on June 21, 2013, and will be shown in Disney Digital 3D™ in select theaters.
