Earlier today, we got a sneak peek of the upcoming Disney+ show Monster at Work. The first episode is slated to be released on July 2nd, 2021. Monsters At Work will take place after Monsters, Incorporated began harvesting the laughter of children instead of screams to fuel the city of Monstropolis. According to D23,
“The series follows the adventures of Tylor Tuskmon, an eager young monster who graduated top of his class at Monsters University and always dreamed of becoming a Scarer… until he landed a job at Monsters, Incorporated and discovered that scares are out and laughs are in. After being temporarily reassigned to the Monsters, Inc. Facilities Team (MIFT), Tylor must work alongside a misfit bunch of mechanics as he works toward becoming a Jokester.”
Billy Crystal and John Goodman will reprise their roles as Mike Wazowski and James P. “Sulley” Sullivan. John Ratzenberger will also return to voice the Yeti and Tylor’s dad, Bernard.
Other returning cast members include Jennifer Tilly as Celia Mae, Bonnie Hunt as Ms. Flint, and Bob Peterson as Roze, the twin sister of his Monsters Inc. character Roz.
