Monsters University is a 2013 American 3D computer-animated comedy film produced by Pixar Animation Studiosand released by Walt Disney Pictures. It was directed by Dan Scanlon and produced by Kori Rae. It is the fourteenth feature film produced by Pixar and is a prequel to 2001’s Monsters, Inc., marking the first time Pixar has made a prequel film.
Disney, as the rights holder, had plans for a second Monsters, Inc. film since 2005. Following disagreements with Pixar, Disney tasked its Circle 7 Animation unit to make the sequel. An early draft of the film was developed, however, Disney’s purchase of Pixar in early 2006 led to the cancellation of the Circle 7’s version of the film. A Pixar-made sequel was confirmed in 2010, and in 2011, it was confirmed that the film would instead be a prequel titled Monsters University.
Monsters University tells the story of two monsters, Mike and Sulley, and their time studying at college, where they start off as rivals, but slowly become best friends. Billy Crystal, John Goodman, Steve Buscemi, Bob Peterson, andJohn Ratzenberger reprise their roles as Mike Wazowski, James P. Sullivan, Randall Boggs, Roz, and the Abominable Snowman, respectively. Bonnie Hunt, who played Ms. Flint in the first film, voices Mike’s grade school teacher, Ms. Karen Graves. Source: Wikipedia.
X-Men: First Class is a 2011 superhero film, based on the X-Men characters appearing in Marvel Comics. The film was directed by Matthew Vaughn and produced by Bryan Singer, and acts as a prequel to the X-Men film series. The story is set primarily in 1962 during the Cuban Missile Crisis, and focuses on the relationship between Charles Xavier (Professor X) and Erik Lensherr (Magneto), and the origin of their groups—the X-Men and the Brotherhood of Mutants, respectively. The film stars James McAvoy as Charles Xavier and Michael Fassbender as Erik Lensherr, leading an ensemble cast that includes Kevin Bacon, January Jones, Rose Byrne, Jennifer Lawrence, Zoë Kravitz, Nicholas Hoult,Jason Flemyng, and Lucas Till.
Producer Lauren Shuler Donner first thought of a prequel based on the young X-Men during the production of X2, and later producer Simon Kinberg suggested to 20th Century Fox an adaptation of the comic series of the same name, though the film does not follow the comic closely. Bryan Singer, who had directed both X-Men and X2, became involved with the project in 2009, but he had to only produce and co-write First Class due to other projects. Matthew Vaughn, who was previously attached to both X-Men: The Last Stand and Thor, became the director, and also wrote the final script with his writing partner Jane Goldman. Source: Wikipedia.
Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back (also known as The Empire Strikes Back) is a 1980 American epic space opera film directed by Irvin Kershner, produced by Gary Kurtz, and written by Leigh Brackett and Lawrence Kasdan, with George Lucas writing the film’s story and serving as executive producer. The film is set three years after Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope.
Three years later in Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back, Princess Leia now leads a contingent that includes Han Solo and Luke Skywalker in a hidden base on an icy planet of the Hoth system. She later helps with the evacuation of Hoth during an Imperial attack, remaining at her station until Han Solo forces her to leave with him. She flees with C-3PO, Han and Chewbacca on their Millennium Falcon ship. Although they are pursued by Imperial TIE fighters, they dodge their fire by flying into an asteroid field when the hyperdrive for the Falcon breaks down. Romance blossoms between Leia and Han during their flight from the Empire; while hiding in the stomach of a space slug, she finally shares a kiss with the Corellian smuggler. Later, when they stop at Bespin for repairs, Lando Calrissian turns them over to the Empire to which Darth Vader plans to use them as bait for Luke Skywalker. Han is also used as a test subject for the carbon freezing chamber meant for Luke, and it is there that Leia finally confesses her love for Han. Vader then gives the frozen Han to bounty hunter Boba Fett.
In the Rebel Alliance base on the small icy planet of the Hoth System…
Han: Well, Your Highness, guess this is it.
Leia: That’s right.
Han: Don’t get all mushy on me. So long, Princess.
Leia (running after him): Han.
Han: Yes, Your Highnessness.
Leia: I thought you had decided to stay.
Han: The bounty hunter we ran into in Ord Mantell changed my mind.
Leia: Han, we need you.
Han: We need?
Han: What about you need?
Leia: I need? I don’t know what you’re talking about.
Han: You probably don’t.
Leia: What precisely am I supposed to know?
Han: Come on. You want me to stay because of the way you feel about me.
Leia: Yes. You’re a great help to us. You’re a natural leader.
Han: No. That’s not it. Come on. Come on.
Leia: You’re imagining things.
Han: Am I? Then why are you following me? Afraid I’d leave without giving you a goodbye kiss?
Leia: I’d just as soon kiss a Wookiee.
Han: I can arrange that. You could use a good kiss!
Later in Luke’s chamber…
Han: Well, Your Worship… Looks like you managed to keep me around for a little while longer.
Leia: I had nothing to do with it. General Rieekan thinks it’s dangerous for any ships to leave until we’ve activated the energy field.
Han: That’s a good story. I think you just can’t bear to let a gorgeous guy like me out of your sight.
Leia: I don’t know where you get your delusions, laser brain.
Han (to Chewbacca): Laugh it up, fuzzball, but you didn’t see us alone in the south passage. She expressed her true feelings for me.
Leia: My… Why, you stuck-up, half-witted, scruffy-looking nerf herder!
Han: Who’s scruffy-lookin’?
Han (to Luke): I must have hit close to the mark to get her riled up like that, huh, kid?
Leia: I guess you don’t know everything about women yet. (Leia gives a kiss in Luke)
Leia: Would it help if I got out and pushed?
Han: It might.
Leia: This bucket of bolts will never get past that blockade.
Han: This baby’s got a few surprises left in her. Switch over. Let’s hope we don’t have a burnout. See?
Leia: Someday you’ll be wrong. I hope I’m there to see it.
Han: Punch it!
Han: Prepare to jump to light speed.
C-3P0: But, sir!
Leia: They’re getting closer.
Han: Oh, yeah? Watch this.
Leia: Watch what?
Han: I think we’re in trouble.
C-3P0: If I may say so… I noticed earlier the hyperdrive motivator has been damaged. It’s impossible to go to light speed.
Han: We’re in trouble.
Han: Chewie, set 271.
Leia: What are you doing? You’re not actually going into an asteroid field?
Han: They’d be crazy to follow us, wouldn’t they?
Leia: You don’t have to do this to impress me.
C-3P0 Sir, the possibility of successfully navigating an asteroid field is approximately 3,720-to-1.
Han: Never tell me the odds.
Han: You said you wanted to be around when I made a mistake. This could be it.
Leia: I take it back. We’re gonna get pulverized if we stay out here much longer.
Han: Ain’t gonna argue with that. I’m going closer to one of the big ones.
Leia (falling over Han): Let go. Let go, please.
Han: Don’t get excited.
Leia: Captain, being held by you isn’t quite enough to get me excited.
Han: Sorry, sweetheart. I haven’t got time for anything else.
Han: Hey, Your Worship, I’m only trying to help.
Leia: Would you please stop calling me that?
Han: Sure, Leia.
Leia: You make it so difficult sometimes.
Han: I do. I really do.
Leia: You could be a little nicer though.
Han: Admit it. Sometimes you think I’m all right.
Leia: Occasionally, maybe when you aren’t acting like a scoundrel.
Han: Scoundrel? I like the sound of that.
Leia: Stop that.
Han: Stop what?
Leia: Stop that. My hands are dirty.
Han: My hands are dirty too. What are you afraid of?
Han: You’re trembling.
Leia: I’m not trembling.
Han: You like me because I’m a scoundrel. There aren’t enough scoundrels in your life.
Leia: I happen to like nice men.
Han: I’m a nice man.
Leia: No, you’re not.
(Han kisses Leia for just a moment)
C-3P0: Sir, sir! (interrupting the kiss) I’ve isolated the reverse power flux coupling.
