Roll Call: Meet the Main Characters from Monsters University

My kids and I had a chance to see a super advanced screening of Disney-Pixar’s Monsters University back in May, and after seeing it again for a second time this weekend, let’s just say school has never been this scary awesome.

The prequel to Monsters, Inc. takes us back in time to get a look at Mike Wazowski and James P. Sullivan as college students and Scaring Program hopefuls. From the moment the two mismatched monsters meet, they can’t stand each other. As far as they’re concerned, Randall makes for better company.

No, really.

Haven’t had a chance to see the movie yet?

Then there’s a few monsters you’ll want to meet before you do:

  • The adorable brothers of Oozma Kappa (OK) have bonded over hot cocoa, dream journals and their general lack of self confidence. What they lack in scariness however, they make up for with heart. 17 of 20
