Disney•Pixar has today released four variant trailers for Monsters University, the Monsters, Inc. prequel that will reveal Mike and Sulley's lives as idealistic young college monsters, before they got all corporate, man. The reason for such a cornucopia of teasers? Because BILLY CRYSTAL IS A FUCKING PRO. From ComingSoon, THE MAN DOES NOT GIVE A BAD TAKE:
"Billy Crystal's an amazing comedic actor," remarks Dan Scanlon, the film's director. "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!"
One day, as we look to a holographic Billy Crystal to step in and host the Oscars for a holographic Eddie Murphy, we'll look back on this day with deep regret as we realize how frivolously we spent the precious riches that are our pre-recorded Billy Crystal quips. But for now, live in the moment; watch some trailers:
