The Original Monsters Inc. Pitch Dealt with More Adult Fears
Nov 17, 2009 17:02
The original pitch of Monsters Inc was a lot more focused with an adult tone. Pete Docter outlined his original pitch for Monsters Inc, which wasn't about monsters who came out frightening children, but monsters who act as manifestations of an adult's fears:
"Well, my idea was that what it was about was about a 30 year old man who is like an accountant or something, he hates his job, and one day he gets a book with some drawings in it that he did when he was a kid from his mom, and he doesn't think anything of it and he puts it on the shelf and that night, monsters show up. And nobody else can see them. He thinks he's starting to go crazy, they follow him to his job, and on his dates, and all this- and it turns out these monsters are fears that he never dealt with as a kid. And each one of them represents a different kind of fear. As he conquers those fears, the guys who he slowly becomes kind of friends with- they disappear as he conquers those fears. It's this bittersweet kinda ending where they go away, and so not much of that stayed
it sounds better as a pitch than it did at the time- anyway. "
This sounded that it could have been an incredible mind fuck movie. But nonetheless, Monsters Inc is a beautiful movie as well. Perhaps next time, Pete?
