Monsters University

Me and my long-lost cousin.

This post is has minor spoilers, although if you’ve seen the original Monsters Inc, you kinda already know.

Monsters University is a bit of an anomaly for a Pixar movie. It’s the first prequel but it’s also a bit unusual in what it tries to say. Most Pixar movies are about how you can be anything you want to be if you just try hard enough. And that’s a great message.

But sometimes, life doesn’t turn out as expected. Consider the story of Stephanie Brown Trafton. She originally dreamt of being an Olympic gymnast. Unfortunately, she grew too big for that to be possible but she found another path and eventually went on to win the Olympic gold in the Women’s Discus Final.

So Monsters University is a lot of fun and you get to see old and new characters in a wonderful setting. But it’s also a movie about the importance of working towards something, even if that something turns out to be different from what you expected.
