Return on “Monsters University”, the prequel of “Monsters University” which explores the monstrous meeting between Bob and Sulli, and on all the easter eggs which are hidden inside …
A plastic dinosaur to announce the release of the Voyage d’Arlo, a famous code inscribed on the door of an amphitheater or even Bob Razowski’s parents in photos … Monstres Academy, prequel to the mythical Monstres & Cie, is filled with winks of all kinds. Back on the many details that should not be missed by (re) discovering the 14th feature film from Pixar studios.
For the very first time, this legendary code that can be found in each of the Pixar feature films here fulfills its original function: to adorn the door of a classroom. Indeed, before being put up at the entrance of this amphitheater of the Monsters University, number A113 was from an animation class at CalArts University, where all of the studio’s veterans cut their teeth.
A little air of déjà vu
This plush that Sulli uses in Monsters, Inc. to try to calm little Bou seems to belong to Bob Razowski for many years, and to take on a very particular sentimental value for him. Indeed, when the little green monster moves into his room in the Monsters University, he sets up his teddy bear in plain view on a shelf.
“Winds of change”
“Shhhh! Do you hear? It’s the winds of change!” This reply, uttered by Leon in Monsters, Inc. to provoke Bob in the locker room, also appears in Monsters University. It can indeed be seen framed in Razowski’s university room. Logical, given that his roommate is none other than … Leon the Chameleon.
The Pizza Planet van
Found in every Pixar feature film, this legendary vehicle that helped Woody and Buzz track down Andy in Toy Story is parked right next to this house, which serves as the HQ for one of the many student fraternities. of the Monsters University.
While his name refers to that of director Dan Scanlon, this member of the Oozmpa Kappa apparently lives at 1200 Dark Avenue: a nod to the real address of Pixar Studios, which are located at 1200 Park Avenue. As for the telephone indicator indicated on the business card (510), it corresponds to that of Emeryville, the city in which the artists of the studio work.
The car of his dreams
This superb yellow racing car, which Razowski had acquired in the short film Bob’s New Car, seems to be very popular in the world of Monsters, Inc.. Indeed, we can also see it on a poster, pinned in the basement of the Oozma Kappa.
Luxo Jr.’s balloon
A legendary Pixar object that we have often seen bouncing among the studio’s productions, this colorful balloon from the short film Luxo Jr. also appears in Monsters University, in the form of a graffiti that adorns the walls of the sewers.
This hairy, orange, and extremely unlucky monster seems to have also made his classes at the Monsters University. A few years before being placed in quarantine for having been in contact with a human sock, he witnessed with some embarrassment the hazing of the Oozma Kappa.
The Voyage of Arlo
Pixar tradition requires, the characters of Monsters University offer here a small cameo to the apatosaurus of the Arlo trip, which must succeed them in the dark rooms. We can thus see the dinosaur appear in the form of a plastic toy, during the final test of the Games of Fear, quickly swept away by a university employee.
Just like Germaine and Waternoose, who also make quick appearances at the end of Monsters University, that abominable snowman – who will play a much larger role in Monsters, Inc. – had already crossed paths with Bob and Sulli.
Bob Razowski’s parents
A mustached daddy and a smiling mom … If you want to know what our friend Bob’s parents look like, look in his locker on the left. A small photograph reveals the faces of Mr. and Mrs. Razowski.
Celia’s first letter
Even if she does not physically appear in the film, Bob’s girlfriend is still entitled to a little wink from her dear “gossip”: still in the latter’s locker, a credit card. visit accompanied by a phone number and a trace of lipstick seems to mark the beginning of their story.
“Screaming in the rain”
Monstrous version of Singin ‘in the Rain (“Singin’ in the Rain”), would this film have marked the first date between Bob and Celia?
