Monsters At Work, an animated series based on the characters from Disney’s Monsters Inc., will have Billy Crystal and John Goodman to reprise their roles as Mike and Sulley once again. They will be joined by original cast members John Ratzenberger as Yeti and the new character, Bernard; Jennifer Tilly as Celia Mae; and Bob Peterson as Roze, twin sister to his original Monsters, Inc. character, Roz.
According to Deadline, Monsters At Work picks up six months after the original movie’s story. The Monsters, Inc. power plant harvests the laughter of children to fuel the city of Monstropolis after Mike and Sulley discovered that laughter generates ten times more energy than screams.
Although the main characters from the original film are back, Monsters At Work will focus on a young mechanic named Tylor Tuskmon who dreams of working with his idols, Mike and Sulley, as a Jokester on the factory Laugh Floor. Tyler Tuskmon will be voiced by Ben Feldman who is known for his leading role in The Perfect Man.
Deadline reports that this series will also star Kelly Marie Tran (Star Wars: The Last Jedi) as Val Little, Tylor’s lifelong friend and confidante; Henry Winkler (Barry) as Fritz, the scatterbrained boss; Lucas Neff (Raising Hope) as Duncan, an opportunistic plumber; Alanna Ubach (Coco) as Cutter, the officious rule follower; and Stephen Stanton (Star Wars Resistance) as Smitty and Needleman, the bumbling custodial team. Aisha Tyler (Archer) voices Tylor’s mom, Millie Tuskmon.
Developer and executive producer Bobs Gannaway is working with producer Ferrell Barron and directors Kat Good and Rob Gibbs on this series.
Monsters At Work is set to premiere on the Disney streaming platform, Disney+, in 2020.
