Veteran actors Billy Crystal and John Goodman will be reuniting and revisiting their beloved roles as Mike and Sulley for the animated series Monsters at Work, which is spun off the iconic Monsters, Inc. franchise. The series is set to premiere on Disney+ in 2020, and is produced by Disney Television Animation.
Monsters at Work will pick up six months after the original movie’s story, with the power plant now relying on the laughter of children instead of their screams, thanks to Mike and Sulley’s discovery that laughter produces ten times more energy.
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.
Produced by Disney Television Animation, the series was developed and is executive produced by Disney animation veteran Bobs Gannaway (Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, Planes: Fire & Rescue) with Ferrell Barron (Planes: Fire & Rescue) serving as producer. Kat Good (Penn Zero: Part-Time Hero) and Rob Gibbs (Monsters, Inc.) are directors.
