Dan Scanlon has compared making a Disney-Pixar film to helping an unruly child through its teenage years.

The Monsters University director explained he was pleased with the end product of his upcoming movie but that like "every" Pixar movie it was "horrible" to begin with.

He said: "We threw a ton out, don't get me wrong, but I'm glad it's gone, all of it was a terrible mistake.

"We had a million different versions of the movie and they were all horrible. Every Pixar movie is horrible in the early stages, it goes through an awkward teenage stage and then hopefully it makes it out."

Dan said he felt Pixar had given him plenty of opportunities to make any changes he wanted and had been "very supportive".

He said: "There really wasn't a lot walking away that I feel like we could have done that differently."

Monsters University follows Monsters Inc favourites Mike and Sulley through their university years when they first meet and haven't yet become the best of friends. The film is released in cinemas on July 12.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Aries:

You are brimming with ideas. It's important to practice discernment when developing them. Instead of trying to do five things at once, focus on one or two concepts. If you encounter trouble, stay focused. Keep going until you finish what you've started. You'll feel much more confident if you have something to show for all your hard work. There is a chance you will be dissatisfied with some of the results. That's because you've just started this journey. You will get better and better with practice.More
