Billy Crystal Doesn't Like His 'Monsters University' Character Design
This past weekend, everyone was all about seeing Mike Wazowski and John P. Sullivan reunite in Pixar's animated prequel Monsters University. But the road to getting the film together had a bit of a rough beginning. Since the film takes place before the events of Monsters Inc., the characters voiced by Billy Crystal and John Goodman were made to look a little younger, and the two actors were able to catch a glimpse of their redesigned characters before signing on. However, the new look for Crystal's little green guy didn't really meet his standards despite scaring the daylights out of kids and Goodman himself. Watch it!
Here's the Monsters University inspired sketch from College Humor:
Pixar's Monsters University is being directed by Dan Scanlon, who went from animator to storyboard artist to writer to co-director on Mater and the Ghostlight, making his feature directorial debut. This is a prequel to Pixar's animated movie Monsters Inc, originally released in November 2001. Disney/Pixar has Monsters University set to arrive in Disney Digital 3D everywhere starting June 21st this summer. Funny stuff?
