Based on the smash hit Pixar adventure, Monster’s University takes the characters of the classic Monster’s Inc back in time – to their college days, to be exact. Ever since college-bound Mike Wazowski was a little monster, he has dreamed of becoming a Scarer - and he knows better than anyone that the best Scarers come from Monsters University (MU). But during his first semester at MU, Mike's plans are derailed when he crosses paths with hotshot James P. Sullivan, "Sulley", a natural-born Scarer. The pair's out-of-control competitive spirit gets them both kicked out of the University's elite Scare Program. To make matters worse, they realize they will have to work together, along with an odd bunch of misfit monsters, if they ever hope to put things right. Join us as we create the campus of MU and then share our cuddly monster tale with parents and friends on the final day of class.
