As you might remember, I attended the Hollywood movie premiere of Monsters University this summer (you can read all about my adventures on the red (well, blue) carpet here… and I am so excited to share that in just a few short days, Monsters University will be released on dvd!

Where to purchase? This movie will be released in just a few days on October 29th, 2013! You can pre-order Monsters University (Blu-ray + DVD + Digital Copy) on Amazon right now for $24.99!

My thoughts?

Monsters University takes us back to the earlier days of Sulley and Mike’s friendship, and unveils for us a little bit more about each of them. The story takes us through the ups and downs of their relationship, some of which I think will surprise you! (For example, I was shocked to find out who Mike’s first dorm mate was, and you probably will be too!) From the very beginning, this movie addresses insecurities in each character, and I think that most people will relate to many of the issues that they each dealt with as they tried to find their place in the world and they each struggle to fit in.

Because I already felt pretty connected to these characters (and you might feel the same) it did tug on my heart strings a bit to watch them struggle in the beginning, and it reminded me of parenting. You want the very best for your child, but you can’t always control how things come together. Sometimes they have to find their way on their own, and that is how I felt watching these two monsters work their way through their insecurities as they struggled with everything from school work to making friends. In true Disney fashion, this all unfolds in a hilarious and heartwarming style!

I am always a sucker for underdogs, and this movie has no shortage of them! The charming characters of Oozma Kappa will steal your heart and you will find yourself cheering them on every step of the way! I love the message that this type of movie sends to my children. Because movies like this reinforce valuable lessons, like the message that being different is ok, in fact… it’s something to celebrate. And that true friendship isn’t just valuable, it’s priceless. And  that doing the right thing, is always the right thing to do. You get the idea. Good stuff here.

Pledge Oozma Kappa. Not the coolest kids on the block, but trust me, they will win your heart. One thing that really stands out to me in these movies is the fact that while some of the characters look a bit strange in the beginning, you grow to love them as you get to know them… because you start to love the character. Yet, the bad guys, they never really grow on you, because…well, they are bad guys! This movie will have you and your children laughing out loud and cheering for the monsters of Oozma Kappa as they set out to prove that a little determination and teamwork can go a long way!

This DVD is wonderful and you really get a lot of bang for your buck with this one as there are SO MANY bonus extras on this one, including scare games, deleted scenes, and a wonderful little short called “The Blue Umbrella” …it’s so charming, you will love it!
