Over the summer, we reported that Monsters, Inc. Mike & Sulley to the Rescue! attraction at Disney California Adventure would be closing for a refurbishment. The attraction recently reopened and the monsters on the façade are looking scarier than ever.
We visited the attraction and discovered that the characters that grace the façade of the attraction have received a fresh coat of paint. They look remarkably different, a few for the better, but most on social media agree a majority were changed for the worse.
The entrance to the tapstiles and queue features Mike and Sulley holding a sign with the attraction’s name on it.
Mike has a green tongue for some reason.
Even the back of each of them have been painted in this new detail.
Doors are a major way of going from room to room in the Monsters, Inc. factory. Scarers use this technology to enter the Human World and scare children. Here we see Randall Boggs appearing at his door.
George Sanderson is panicked as he has a human sock stuck on his back.
Everyone’s favorite, Roz, looks even more menacing and stern with her refurb.
Standing on a duffle bag and dressed in her monster costume, they way Boo is lit gives her a touch of one of the portraits from The Haunted Mansion stretching room.
The lovable Needleman is looking good as he surveys the area from his door.
Mike Wazowski’s Gorgon-Cyclops-Medusa-like girlfriend, Celia Mae is looking even better than ever now, but as you can see, appears to be in a totally different art style than the rest.
Needleman’s best friend, Smitty is back to greeting guests in all his green glory.
