MONSTERS UNIVERSITY is an animated fantasy prequel to MONSTERS INC. It tells the story of how young monsters Mike and Sulley first became friends and learned to be scary.

Violence

Scenes of mild slapstick include a chase sequence during which students and objects are knocked over. In one scene a wardrobe falls on top of a character, and at another point various characters enter a game in which they must dodge a number of neon balls which target them as they run.

Threat

Mild comic threat occurs when the 'monster' students have to learn how to scare their victims. There are several scenes in which monster characters creep into mock bedrooms, in which dummies have been placed as 'victims' to be scared. The characters growl at the dummies in order to test how scary they can be. The University Dean and Librarian are bossy female monsters with tentacles and wings. Although initially intimidating, they are also figures of educational authority framed within a positive moral framework. Any scenes of threat are brief, mild and comic in nature, occur within a fantasy world, and are balanced by reassuring outcomes.

Language

The film also contains one use of very mild bad language. More information is available on the main BBFC website and free apps.
