New MONSTERS UNIVERSITY clip shows Sulley and Mike's first scaring lesson!!
Howdy do, everyone, Papa Vinyard here.
Today, Disney released a new MONSTERS UNIVERSITY clip, via The Wall Street Journal blog, that shows 30 seconds of one of Mike Wazowski and "Sulley" Sullivan's introductory scaring classes. The class is headed up by Alfred Molina's strict Professor Knight, who, of course, takes an immediate shine to Sulley's soon-to-be-famous frightener abilities, much to the chagrin of Wazowski. This seems to set up the rivalry between the two nicely, leading up to their inevitable partnership at the end of the movie.
What intrigues me even more than the clip is screenwriter Robert L. Baird's comments in that WSJ article. He says that, regarding the "scaring lesson" scenes, “We had to deconstruct a scare and say every kid is different and the scare has to be specific to that child and what they’re scared of. And that just opened everything up for us." I could see the Pixar creative trust having a blast referencing all the archetypes of various boogiemen that are known to scare children; think a sort of CABIN IN THE WOODS for the preteen set. I am still on the fence on how "necessary" (in terms of story, and not money, of course) this prequel is, but I'd be lying if I said I didn't think this will probably have at least a handful of solid laughs and provocative visual ideas (still love that climax of the original).
Is it just me, or does that actually kinda look like Molina?
MONSTERS UNIVERSITY opens June 21.
