Dame Helen Mirren has signed on to appear in Pixar prequel, Monsters University.

The Oscar-winning actress will voice a dragon called Dean Hardscrabble, the headmistress of the movie’s title institution.

Mirren said she was “a great fan” of Pixar and was “honoured and exhilarated” to be taking part.

The prequel focuses on the relationship between main characters Mike and Sulley, played by Billy Crystal and John Goodman, when they met at university.

Meanwhile, a new trailer has hit. See it below.

Monsters, Inc. was originally released in 2001. Monsters University will hit UK cinemas this July.

Hi all. I'm Bash and love anything and everything to do with Star Wars. Although I've watched hundreds of movies, read dozens of books and played numerous computer games from other genres and franchises since, nothing has come close to seeing George Lucas' epic for the very first time. I hope you all like the site and come back often.
