Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • The fight between Sulley and Mike might be emotional for young children
  • The scene where Mike realises that everyone was right all along about him not being scary after his determination to prove otherwise can be emotional, as he is clearly devastated at his lifelong dream of becoming a scarer having consequently been shattered by this revelation. However, it sends out a useful message in how to cope with failure and disappointment, and the importance of accepting when there are limits to one's abilities and that not everyone can do everything.
