It is hard to believe that just this past Monday I was cruising Hollywood Boulevard at the Monsters University Premiere! Thanks to Disney/Pixar, myself and 24 other bloggers had the experience of a lifetime. This World Premiere was a little different in theme with the movie, it was a tailgate party right in front of the iconic El Capitan Theater!
As we pulled up in our party bus we were excited to see a crowd ready to get a peek at the stars and the entrance to Monsters University! There was magic and excitement in the air as we walked down the BLUE carpet!
First we ran into the Monsters University Cheerleaders, the Scare Squad! They made sure to give us their best “Roar!!” I love the cheerleader’s Sulley legwarmers, too cute! I have a feeling those are going to be a hot item for winter!
Sippy Cup Mom and I had a blast posing with a couple of the cheerleaders, too. Thanks to everyone that helped me pick out my dress. You were right, the short dress was the perfect choice. I felt cool and comfortable in the hot Hollywood sun.
As we walked further down the carpet there were tents lining both sides of the street filled with food and fun! There were Monster themed games for the kiddos and adults to play. There was also amazing appetizers from Wolfgang Puck, yummy bite sized cupcakes from Baked by Melissa, Subway sandwiches in cute Monsters University bags, and dozens of other fabulous booths!
Then through the crowd, I saw him, Gavin Rossdale! My first star sighting, and it could not have been better! I timidly walked up to him and asked if he would take a picture with me. He was very sweet and said yes making this my favorite blue carpet moment of the night, a selfie with Gavin Rossdale!! He was there with wife and No Doubt singer Gwen Stefani and their children. I loved how the stars brought their kids to this premiere!
After that amazing moment, we headed back up to the front to see if we could run into anymore stars. ESPN’s Lee Corso and Desmond Howard were just about to interview Dancing with the Star’s dancer, Karina Smirnoff. She was even more beautiful in person!
Next up was Disney Channel stars, Roshen Fegan, Adam Irigoyan, and Caroline Sunshine!
Wayne Brady was up next! I was really excited to see him especially after going to see his show at the Venetian in Las Vegas several years ago. I am a big fan of his!
Saturday Night Lives funny man Bobby Moynihan was up next for an interview! Moynihan voices fraternity brother Chet in Monsters University!
When I turned around, I was excited to see John Ratzenberger! John played The Abominable Snowman in Monsters Inc., and voices a Monsters, Inc. employee in Monsters University!
I then saw Sean Hayes from Smash and Will & Grace walk by! Sean voiced half of the two-headed monster in Monsters University!
Billy Crystal, voice of Mike Wazowski, walked right by me so quickly I was unable to get a good shot, but I did get these!
It was time for the moment we were all waiting for, the World Premiere of Monsters University. We anxiously headed inside the beautiful El Capitan Theater to watch the film. I cannot wait to tell you about it!
The opportunity to walk the BLUE carpet and rub elbows with A-listers made the Monsters University Premiere an unforgettable experience! Those Monsters really know how to party!
Monsters University Roars into theaters June 21st!
