"My homework ate my dog…"
Monsters Inc. in some ways feels like Pixar's most underrated film. Everyone loves it, no doubt about that, but for some reason the witty and clever comedy, about two monsters who accidentally bring a human back through her closet (which is a portal to the monster dimension), doesn't get talked about in the same hushed, reverent or giddy tones as The Incredibles, Up or the Toy Story franchise. But at least Pixar remembers how great it is. They've put together not one but FOUR teasers for exciting new prequel, which shows Mike (Billy Crystal) and Sulley's (John Goodman) adventures in college.
The teasers are basically the same, except Billy Crystal ad-libbed different dialogue for each one. From the press release: "Billy Crystal's an amazing comedic actor," remarked Dan Scanlon, Director, Disney•Pixar's Monsters University. "He gave us so much fun material, we decided to cut four slightly different versions of the trailer. We are so happy to have him back as Mike!" The teasers come exclusively from Disney, iTunes Trailers, Yahoo! Movies and The Huffington Post.
Monsters University opens in theaters on June 21, 2013.
