On February 19th, Disney•Pixar’s most beloved and visually imaginative feature films MONSTERS, INC arrived for the first time on Blu-ray 3D in the “Ultimate Collector’s Edition” 5-Disc Combo Pack! This is one of my all time Disney favorites and one that we watch on a regular basis, so seeing it in 3D was an added treat!
About: The now-classic Academy Award®-winning animated comedy adventure “Monsters, Inc.” is set in Monstropolis, a thriving company town where monsters of all shapes and sizes reside. Lovable Sulley (voiced by John Goodman) and his wisecracking best friend Mike Wazowski (voiced by Billy Crystal) are the top scare team at Monsters, Inc., the largest scream-processing factory. The main power source in the monster world is the collected screams of human children—and at Monsters, Inc., an elite team of scarers is responsible for gathering those precious natural resources.
Believed by monsters to be toxic, children are strictly forbidden from entering Monstropolis. But when a little girl named Boo (voiced by Mary Gibbs) accidentally follows Sulley back into his world, he finds his career in jeopardy and his life in utter chaos. Assisted by Mike, the two pals plot to rectify the mistake and return Boo to her home. When the trio encounters an unexpected series of complications, they become embroiled in a cover-up catapulting them into a mystery beyond their wildest dreams.
Directed by Oscar®-winner Pete Docter (“Up”) and produced by Oscar nominee Darla K. Anderson (“Toy Story 3”), “Monsters, Inc.” features a screenplay by Andrew Stanton and Daniel Gerson and music by Randy Newman.

I find so much comfort and joy in these movies, and honestly … there is nothing better for the soul than cuddling up with the kiddos to enjoy a Disney movie for the first, or the 100th time. It just does my Mama heart good to have all of these wonderful characters in our lives …I really do feel like we know and love them, and I am sure that many of you feel the same. No joke, when we got to meet the characters at Disney World I think I was as excited as my kids were, I was just giddy inside, it’s one of my favorite memories:
