Monsters Inc. at Tokyo Disneyland

These two commercials for the Monsters, Inc. Ride & Go Seek! attraction at Tokyo Disneyland are enjoyable on two levels: First it’s great to see these familiar Pixar characters speaking Japanese, it almost gives them an anime like quality. Next on the first ad above I love the intercuts of the typical Japanese family mirroring the actions of the animated characters. In fact the high quality of the Japanese voice actors almost makes me want to re-watch the film in Japanese with English subtitles just to see what they did.

The Monsters Inc. attraction is being rolled out with a soft opening and officially opens this April in Japan (the ride first premiered in the United States in 2001). By the way if you haven’t seen the ride here’s a video guide to give you a taste:
