Disney/Pixar prepared a special trailer for Monsters Inc. to show before Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone. Mike and Sulley play a game of charades in their apartment, with Sulley acting out “Harry Potter.” Mike has difficulty solving the puzzle, some of his guesses being Dirty Harry, “Harry Flowerpot” and “When Hairy met Sulley,” (a reference to Billy Crystal’s starring role in When Harry Met Sally…). Eventually Sulley puts on round spectacles, sticks a paper lightning bolt to his forehead and sits on a broom with an owl on his arm, to which Mike ecstatically guesses The Sound of Music. Sully gives up and walks offscreen as Mike finally guesses “Harry Potter” and the cut away to title cards noting that “Monsters Inc.” is “Now showing at a theater near you. Really near you. Like, maybe, right next door.” At the end of the trailer, it is Mike’s turn to act out a part, with a very bored looking Sully guessing it is Star Wars within seconds, much to Mike’s dismay.
