"Monsters University" Director Discusses "Monsters, Inc" Line That Created Continuity Problem

"Monsters University" Director Discusses "Monsters, Inc" Line That Created Continuity ProblemSubmit Comment
"Monsters University" is a prequel to "Monsters, Inc" that will show how Mike Wazowski and Sulley met in college. The problem is that "Monsters, Inc" has a scene in which Mike tells Sulley that they've been friends since fourth grade.

"Monsters University" director Dan Scanlon was recently asked about this continuity problem, and it turns out that this was something that was a major issue during early development.

He explained: "In the first film, they actually say 'you've been jealous of my good looks since fourth grade.' So that was something we talked about early on. We chose college because we wanted to see their relationship develop when they were adults. And we also felt like college is so much about self-discovery and figuring out who you are.

It felt like the perfect place to do this, but we had that line. So we tried versions where they met young and then we skipped ahead to college. And we knew we didn't want to make 'Monsters Elementary.' And it was really Pete Doctor, the original director, and John Lasseter who finally said to me, 'itís great that you're honoring that, but you have to do what's right for the story.' So we made a tough decision to just have them be in college and put that line aside.

Now we joke that that's just an old monster expression, 'you've been jealous of my good looks since the fourth grade.' That's what monsters always say to each other.

Yeah well, "show me the money!" is what Disney employees always say to one another.

Apparently all that money doesn't buy enough creativity to solve continuity problems.

Can't figure it out? Ignore it and turn it into a joke. That will solve everything!

Is this a movie script or a woman?

Hey-yo...........

Nobody remembers that f*cking line anyway. I hope this dumbass director didn't have too many sleepless nights over this sh*t.

Why not have George Lucas work on a Blu-Ray re-release of the first movie, and he can replace Sully with Hayden Christensen.
