Mike Wazowski and James P. Sullivan are an inseparable pair, but that wasn't always the case. From the moment these two mismatched monsters met they couldn't stand each other. "Monsters University" unlocks the door to how Mike and Sulley overcame their differences and became the best of friends.Written by
Mike is similar to Hermione Granger in this film from the Harry [otter films. Both characters are protagonists that study hard at Monsters University and Hogwarts respectively and both do not warm up to Sulley and Harry Potter / Ron Weasley at first, but end up forming a friendship with them respectively. The RORs are similar to Slytherin for both being teams desperate for victory, proving they are the best when it comes to a lot of things, but eventually get defeated by the Mike and Sulley's team in the end.

In the opening scene, when Mrs. Graves is counting students, she counts to 19 and then notices that Mike is missing, which means that there are 20 students in the class. If this were the case, he wouldn't have to pair up with the teacher. However, one of the students could have two heads, similar to Terry and Terri - though they are considered two separate entities, Mike could not conceivably pair up with one of them while the other already has a partner.

The Pixar classic "Monsters, Inc." called out for a prequel in the same way that "Cars" called out for one sequel and one brand extension which is to say not at all. Anyway, the studio needs to bring in revenue while it works to recover from "Brave" so out comes this exploration of Mike and Sully's origin story. Even given the original already established the universe, the story still lacks originality with fairly stock characters and situations. The writing fully lacks the crackling lines of the original and is someone maudlin and overly dramatic for a kids animated comedy. Billy Crystal and the always excellent John Goodman put in a journeyman effort but their occupation of the AARP demographic while playing teenagers does raise the question of why Disney didn't just find some sound-a-like younger actors (Billy Crystal's "Lawn Gyland" accent invites easy imitation). The animation does present some great architectural shots and is colorful and entertaining. In short, had the original never existed "Monster's U" would sit as a pleasant but forgettable summer popcorn experience.
