Get ready for more Monsters Inc., because it’s coming. Back when it was first revealed that Disney would be creating their own streaming platform in the form of Disney+, it was revealed that there were many Disney-owned properties would be along for the ride — such as Star Wars and Marvel. However, those aren’t the only big brands Disney owns. They also own the lovely Pixar Animation Studios, known for such classics as Toy Story and Monsters Inc.
That latter property is one that’s been thrown out there from day one as a property that would be utilized to help sell their new streaming service, and now, we have a few more details about the project. According to Deadline, the animated series, which is set to premiere on Disney+ in 2020, will be titled Monsters at Work, and will see the return of Mike and Sulley along with their voice actors Billy Crystal and John Goodman.
In addition to this, we also have first plot details, courtesy of the outlet, such as its timeframe, which takes place six months after the events of the first movie, which sees the monsters now harvesting energy using childrens’ laughter:
“Monsters At Work follows Tylor Tuskmon (voiced by Ben Feldman), an eager and talented young mechanic on the Monsters, Inc. Facilities Team (MIFT) who dreams of working his way up to the factory Laugh Floor to become a Jokester alongside his idols Mike and Sulley.”
Joining Crystal and Goodman are Monsters Inc. vets “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.”
