What Is Monsters Inc. About?
“Monsters Inc.” offers a unique perspective on the world of monsters and revolves around the lives of the main characters, James P. “Sulley” Sullivan and Mike Wazowski. The story is set in the monster-inhabited city of Monstropolis, where electricity is generated from the screams of human children. Monsters Inc. is the largest scare factory in Monstropolis, employing monsters to venture into children’s bedrooms at night and scare them, capturing their screams to power the city. The monsters believe that children are toxic and coming into contact with them is dangerous.
Sulley, a large, blue, and furry monster, is the top scarer at Monsters Inc., while his one-eyed, green best friend, Mike Wazowski, serves as his assistant. Their lives take a turn when a little girl named Boo accidentally enters their world through her bedroom door. Boo’s presence in the monster world is initially a cause for panic, as monsters fear contact with children.
As Sulley and Mike try to find a way to return Boo to her world, they face various challenges and develop a bond with her. They discover that laughter generates more energy than screams. With the help of their friends, they ultimately confront the corrupted practices within Monsters Inc. and find a solution that benefits both the monsters and the children.

In other words, it’s the perfect movie,” says Robert Wilonsky of The New Times (L.A.).
