The first two episodes of Disney/Pixar’s new series Monsters At Work premiered on Disney+ and fans could not be more excited! The new show brings back everyone’s favorite characters from Monsters, Inc. (2001) after they decide to use children’s laughs to power the city instead of children’s screams.
Check out the trailer:
About Monsters At Work
The concept of a Monsters, Inc. spin-off series was first announced in 2017 by former Walt Disney Company CEO Bob Iger. In 2019, it was announced that original voice actors Billy Crystal and John Goodman would reprise their roles as Mike and Sulley, respectively.
The series follows a new monster, Tylor Tuskmon, voiced by Ben Feldman, who recently graduated from Monsters University (where Mike and Sulley first met, as seen in the 2013 prequel). Tylor is excited to start working as a scarer at Monsters Incorporated until he learns on his first day that they now want jokesters. The series then follows Tylor on his journey to learning how to make kids laugh.
The series also stars Monsters, Inc. cast members Jennifer Tilly (Celia Mae), Bob Peterson (Roz), Bonnie Hunt (Ms. Flint), and John Ratzenberger (Yeti). Mindy Kaling, Gabriel Iglesias, and Henry Winkler will voice new monsters Val Little, Gary Gibbs, and Fritz, respectively. Executive producer Roberts Gannaway confirmed earlier this year that we will not be seeing Boo in Monsters At Work.
