Pixar/Disney's Monsters University follows the college days of Mike and Sulley, the two beloved monsters voiced by Billy Crystal and John Goodman. Although the two characters are rivals at first, they soon become best friends who are inseparable...
Even though the monsters dealt with friendship problems, they eventually help each other figure out who they were meant to be.
"In this movie they find out who they are. That's the most important element to me," observes Crystal. "Mike has a dream and the dream may not work out, so he has to readjust and recalibrate. He does that with the help of his friend and he starts believing in himself."
In the characters' relationship, sometimes there's doubt whether or not everything is going to turn out right. Crystal says that this draws a parallel to real life.
"We all have doubts. That's what so fascinating and frustrating and great about life. We're starting over constantly."
And that's what Monsters University is all about – realizing when one door closes, another one opens. Prepare yourself for a movie oozing with laughter, heartfelt friendship, and scares on June 21!
