WATCH: Helen Mirren In The New 'Monster's University' Trailer

'Hitchcock' star has voiced new role!

The latest UK trailer for Pixar's 'Monster's University' has landed, and at last we get to see Helen Mirren's character Dean Hardscrabble!

The sequel takes place several years before the timeframe of the original 2001 movie 'Monster's Inc', and sees Sulley (John Goodman) and Mike (Billy Crystal) as roomates when they were learning how to scare.

According to Digital Spy, Mirren said in a statement: "As a great fan of all things Pixar, I was honoured and exhilarated to be asked to appear in 'Monsters University'."

The actress, who lost out at this year's BAFTAs last night to French actress Emmanuelle Riva in the Best Actress category, added: "What a liberation! As an actor, you have two important tools to your trade: your voice and your body.

"It has been easy over the years to find good roles for my voice, but it has not been so easy to squash my many legs and my wings into the various costumes I have been forced to uncomfortably wear, disguising my true form."

Mirren continued: "Finally I can make good use of both voice and body in a role that seems tailor-made for me—one could say monster-made. At last, the audience can experience the real Helen Mirren. Thank you Disney•Pixar and [director] Dan Scanlon."
