We have known for quite some time now that Disney was taking Pixar’s popular Monsters Inc. franchise and bring them to Disney+ in the form of a series. Now, thanks to a new report we have a big update.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, The series titled Monsters At Work that will reunite Billy Crystal and John Goodman in the not so scary world of Monstropolis from the popular Monsters, Inc franchise.
The series picks up six months after the original movie with the power plant at its center now harvesting the laughter of children to fuel the city of Monstropolis. The series follows Tylor Tuskmon (Ben Feldman), an eager and talented mechanic on the Monsters, Inc. Facilities Team who dreams of working on the Laugh Floor alongside Mike and Sulley.
Also starring in the voice cast are franchise originals John Ratzenberger as Yeti, Jennifer Tilly as Celia, Bob Peterson as Roz, and franchise newcomers Ben Feldman (Superstore), Kelly Marie Tran (Star Wars: The Last Jedi), Henry Winkler (Barry), Lucas Neff (Raising Hope), Alanna Ubach (Coco), Stephen Stanton (Star Wars Resistance) and Aisha Tyler (Archer).
Tran will voice as Val Little, Tylor’s lifelong friend and confidante; Winkler will give life to Fritz, the scatterbrained boss; Neff will voice Duncan, an opportunistic plumber; Ubach is Cutter, the officious rule follower; Stanton is Smitty and Needleman, the bumbling custodial team; and Tyler voices Tylor’s mom, Millie Tuskmon.
Monsters at Work is produced by Disney Television Animation and was developed and exec produced by Bobs Gannaway (Mickey Mouse Clubhouse) with Ferrell Barron on board to produce. Kat Good and Rob Gibbs direct.
Disney is set to announce plans for the streaming platform during an investor presentation Thursday. Disney+ is expected to launch this November.
