The Disney Curmudgeon is a weekly op-ed piece from your friendly Hyperion Papers admin staff. I use this space to publicly rant about things that bother me, sometimes about Disney Parks, sometimes about Disney entertainment, but usually about the online Disney community. Obviously my opinions do not reflect those of the Disney Corporation, and it would be presumptuous for me to think that Disney would even care about my lunatic ravings, but they should, on both counts. What follows is my honest assessment on a topic that I find irksome. The disclaimer: I will keep my columns PG-13, but there will be the occasional light profanity, and sometimes, I may even allude to something a bit lewd. If I offend you in any way, feel free to let me know in the comments, but I did give you fair warning.

It was only a teaser, so here is my short impression of the Monsters University: Ever since the original film dropped, I’ve been looking forward to a possible sequel. It is set up for a great sequel better than any Pixar film has been since the company’s inception, with the exception of maybe The Incredibles.
So, what we have here is a prequel, which is already disappointing. It is a cute idea to set them in their college years, and I am certain that Pixar will eventually release a quality product, but I’m still disappointed in the direction they decided to take with this film.
