Disney’s premiere for Pixar’s “Monsters University” at the El Capitan theater turned Hollywood Boulevard into a blue-and-white tailgate party, complete with a marching band and cheer squad, themed around the scare school in the prequel that brings back Billy Crystal and John Goodman as younger versions of their characters from “Monsters, Inc.”

Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale, as well as “Teen Beach Movie’s” Garrett Clayton, walked the blue carpet June 17 along with Sean Hayes, Bobby Moynihan and John Ratzenberger who voice characters in the follow-up.

According to Crystal, the film “makes you feel how you felt when you were 17 or 18, when everything was possible.” He was able to watch the first film with his kids. Now with the prequel, “I can see it with my kids and grandkids.”
