In the colourful and fast-paced prequel to Disney Pixar’s Monsters, Inc, we go back to Mike Wazowski’s childhood when he ignites his desire to become a scarer.

Years later, Mike (Billy Crystal) heads off to university to realise his dream, where he befriends shy roommate Randall Boggs (Steve Buscemi) and impresses his teachers.

But classmate Sulley (John Goodman) gets all the attention and is courted by the Roar Omega Roar fraternity and its dashing president, Johnny Worthington (Nathan Fillion).

Eventually, Mike snaps and declares war on Sulley. Their fates rest on an end-of-term exam, which must be passed or Dean Hardscrabble (Helen Mirren) will expel them.

So he joins forces with the Oozma Kappa fraternity to prove every underdog has his day.
