If you haven’t yet purchased both the Mike Wazowski and Randall ‘Randy’ Boggs figures for ‘Disney Infinity’ yet, first: what’s wrong with you? You must feel like Charlie Bucket from Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory; second: don’t. At least not if you plan on purchasing Monsters University when it’s out on Blu-ray October 29, 2013 and you don’t plan on buying the 3D version or care about digital copy.

In addition to some of the upcoming additions to the Disney Cruise Line Disney Magic that we reported earlier today, we have some details on Walt Disney World’s ‘Monstrous Summer’ that are expected to be confirmed/announced later this week during a press event.
To confirm reports from other sources, on May 24, 2013, the Magic Kingdom will play host to a 24 hour party, which will feature appearances by Mike Wazowski and James P. ‘Sulley’ Sullivan as their Monsters University meet and greet persona, as pictured here.
Another site has posted several Monsters University character poses it has received from Disney/Pixar. Among the illustrations of a younger, thinner James P. Sullivan and a younger, metallic Mike Wazowski are newly revealed characters including Art, Don, Squishy, Squishy’s Mom and the twin
s, Terri and Terry.
Interestingly enough, a cursory search turned up only one other mention of Squishy and that was in a PEZ candy sales page which displays a photo of Squishy, Mike W, Sulley and Randall as PEZ dispensers, available May 2013. On a tangent, the brochure also mentions an all new Disney Channel Original Movie for ‘Phineas and Ferb’s Christmas Vacation’ in 2013 when introducing its Candace dispenser.
The Academy Award®-winning animated comedy adventure Monsters, Inc. returns to the big screen—now in 3D—with lovable Sulley (voiced by John Goodman) and his wisecracking best friend Mike Wazowski (voiced by Billy Crystal) as they struggle to help a little girl named Boo (voiced by Mary Gibbs) find her way home from Monstropolis in the midst of a wild and mysterious cover-up.
Monsters, Inc. 3D will be followed by its prequel, Monsters University, which debuts theatrically on June 21, 2013.
Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment has set a date for the release of the highly anticipated Monsters, Inc. on Blu-ray. Initially expected to be released back in May alongside A Bug’s Life, the new street date is November 10. With an MSRP of $39.99, the 2 disc set also includes the film on DVD as well as a Disneyfile digital copy.
As you might imagine, the Blu-ray edition is feature-packed and includes such features as:
Filmmakers’ Round Table – Pete Docter, Lee Unkrich, Darla Anderson, and Bob Peterson reflect on the creation of the film, and share their most memorable anecdotes.
