Monsters University Blu-ray

Posted August 9, 2013 03:59 PM by Webmaster

Walt Disney PicturesWalt Disney Pictures Walt Disney Home Entertainment has officially announced and detailed its upcoming Blu-ray release of Monsters University, featuring the voices of Billy Crystal, John Goodman, Steve Buscemi, Helen Mirren, Nathan Fillion, Alfred Molina, Joel Murray, Sean Hayes, Dave Foley, John Krasinski and Aubrey Plaza. Street date is October 29th.

Monsters University will be available for purchase as a 4-Disc Ultimate Collector's Edition Blu-ray 3D Combo Pack, 3-Disc Collector's Edition Blu-ray Combo Pack, and 3-Disc Blu-ray Combo Pack.

After scaring up big laughs in theaters, the in-home release of "Monsters University" opens its doors to the movie in stunning high definition Blu-ray, and provides hours of all-new bonus material, in-depth behind the scenes features, deleted scenes, the animated theatrical short "The Blue Umbrella" and much more. Directed by Dan Scanlon ("Cars," "Mater and the Ghostlight," "Tracy"), produced by Kori Rae ("Up," "The Incredibles," "Monsters, Inc."), and written by Dan Scanlon and Robert Baird & Dan Gerson ("Monsters, Inc."), "Monsters University" marks Pixar's 14th consecutive film to debut at number one at the box office.

Ever since college-bound Mike Wazowski (voice of Billy Crystal) 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" (voice of John Goodman), 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 make things right. "Monsters University" bravely explores themes of self-discovery and the revelations that come with growing up.

Joining Crystal and Goodman as part of "Monsters University's" monstrously talented voice cast are Steve Buscemi (voice of Randy Boggs), Helen Mirren (voice of Dean Hardscrabble), Alfred Molina (voice of Professor Knight), Charlie Day (voice of Art), Sean P. Hayes (voice of Terri Perry), Dave Foley (voice of Terry Perry), Nathan Fillion (voice of Johnny Worthington) and Aubrey Plaza (voice of Claire Wheeler). Featuring a score from recent Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee and award-winning composer Randy Newman ("Monsters, Inc.," "Toy Story 3"), MU also includes music from Axwell and Sebastian Ingrosso of Swedish House Mafia.

Special Features:
  • Campus Life – What's it like being on a production crew at Pixar? Get a look at a day in the life of the "Monsters University" crew through their own eyes.
  • Story School – This documentary examines the challenges of creating a prequel as well as themes that run through the story, and the change in focus from Sulley to Mike. We'll also look at how gags are developed – from writing jokes to brainstorming a million ideas
  • Scare Games – At Pixar, we play hard while we work. The same people who keep the film production moving – producers, managers, coordinators and artists – are also the ones who bring spirit and excitement to some of our extracurricular activities. We check out the MU production teams as they go head to head in the mostly playful Pixar Scare Games competitions.
  • Welcome to MU – Sets aren't just buildings, they are the worlds our characters live in and explore. This look at the Monsters University campus and its development is told from the perspective of the artists who created each piece of the campus from the architecture to the ivy leaves.
  • Music Appreciation – Randy Newman's scores are a mainstay of Pixar films, and this documentary will give you a privileged look at his creative process. We follow the "Monsters University" scoring process from spotting to writing and on to the scoring session. including special college-themed recording sessions.
  • Scare Tactics – Animators are actors who digitally bring the characters to life. In this look at how the MU animation team worked, you'll see their process of how they channeled their own monster-selves and created moments on screen that were really funny, really scary and also really serious, sometimes all at the same time.
  • Color and Light – How can a single painting set the tone for an entire scene? We'll look at the creation of the colorscripts and how they were realized technically in the final film. Along with the paturalistic feel.
  • Paths to Pixar – MU Edition – When one door closes, sometimes another door opens – one with an even more exciting opportunity behind it. Members of the MU crew tell their own compelling backstories and share the challenges they overcame along their paths to Pixar.5% of which actually end up in the movie.
  • Furry Monsters: A Technical Retrospective – Explore the difficulties in creating characters that are 20 years younger with tools that are 10 years more advanced in this contrasting look at the differing technical challenges that arose when making "Monsters, Inc.," and "Monsters University."
  • Deleted Scenes [with an introduction from director Dan Scanlon]:
    • "Rivalry"
    • "Recon"
    • "Movie Night"
    • "Drama Class"
  • "The Blue Umbrella" – This animated short film from Pixar Animation Studios, directed by Saschka Unseld and produced by Marc Greenberg, played in theaters in front of "Monsters University." "The Blue Umbrella" tells the story of an evening commute in which the rain starts to fall and the city comes alive to the sound of dripping rain pipes, whistling awnings and gurgling gutters. And in the midst, two umbrellas—one blue, one not—fall eternally in love.

Set flythoughs! My favorite feature on the DVD and the Blu-ray editions of Monsters, Inc. Nice to see that they also included it for Monsters University! Every Pixar film should have set flythoughs (although not all of them do sadly)!

Wasn't the best Pixar film, but it will fit into my collection!

What's the point of making 3 different sets? If your answer is "more options" then how come there isn't another set that includes the 3D, BD/DVD combo without the digital copy?

Like the artwork for the regular blu better than the 3D. I'll go for the UK 3D which has a better cover.

This should make everyone unhappy. I pre-ordered the 3D version from Amazon on 7/5 for $29.99 (or Less) so the price did go up unfortunately, but like Adam_ME, I also would have preferred the other covers to the 3D cover.
