Known Trivia

  • The first prequel to a Pixar film.
  • Doug Sweetland, who directed the Pixar short Presto, was originally set to direct Monsters University, before being replaced with Dan Scanlon.
  • Mike’s parents were originally planned to be included in the story. They would drop Mike off for his first day at Monsters University. However, director Dan Scanlon decided to drop them from the finished film to make Mike seem just that much more vulnerable.
  • Professor Knight’s lecture hall is room A113, a reference to a room at CalArts where animation classes are taught. All Pixar films have a reference to “A113”.
  • Pixar’s “Luxo Jr.” ball appears as a drawing on the stone wall at the beginning of the first Scare Games task.
  • The area code on Don Carlton’s business card is (510), which is the same as Emeryville, California, where the Pixar studio is located.
  • WILHELM SCREAM: As Mike runs over a student with the floor waxer.
  • The Pizza Planet truck, first featured in Toy Story can be seen parked by the left of the ROR sorority house during the party. This truck is present in all Pixar feature film so far.

Goofs: Continuity: When Mike and Sully are first shown their room at the frat house, the light switch is under the top bunk bed. In subsequent shots it has moved closer to the door and is no longer directly under the bed.

Plot: A look at the relationship between Mike and Sulley during their days at Monsters University — when they weren't necessarily the best of friends. Full summary » |  »

Story: 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.
