Monsters, Inc. brings together director Pete Docter, co-director Lee Unkrich, producer Darla Anderson and actor Bob Peterson for a filmed roundtable. An interactive game, “Roz’s 100 Door Challenge,” throws mini-games, trivia and puzzles at players. Also included are BD Live movie chat, mail and messages, and a sneak peek at the new Monsters Inc. attraction at Disneyland Tokyo.
The Blu-ray is priced at $40 and original bonus features from the DVD releases are also included.
