Monsterpedia is an online encyclopedia dedicated to the Monsters franchise, one of the many Pixar universes. It is a fan-driven community project open for anyone to edit, discuss changes on talk pages, or simply join the community. The site is powered by Wikia, a wiki hosting service that allows users to create and edit Wikipedia-like websites.
Monsterpedia aims to be an extensive and thorough encyclopedia for anything to do with the Monsters franchise. Although users must be at least thirteen years old to create an account, the content of the website is designed to be available and helpful for readers of all ages. The Monsterpedia community is all-inclusive and welcoming, offering forums, talk pages and other locations for users to interact with one another.
The Monsters, Inc. Wiki was founded on May 12, 2013 by RodRedlineM1. It shortly received a surge of popularity with the long-awaited theatrical release of Monsters University, allowing the site and its community to grow.
In March 2020, the Monsters, Inc. Wiki merged with the Monsters at Work Wiki, a smaller community that specialized in covering the upcoming Disney+ show Monsters at Work, for the purpose of keeping all Monsters information in one, easily identifiable location. During this process, the decision was made to rename the website to its current title, Monsterpedia, a portmanteau of "Monsters" and "Wikipedia".
Monsterpedia is affiliated with several other Disney and Pixar Wikis, some of which also feature coverage of the Monsters series.
