We’re finally getting a new update on the upcoming Monsters, Inc. series for Disney+!
Star Billy Crystal, who voices Mike Zazowski, recently opened up about the new show, Monsters At Work, which is a sequel series to the original movie.
“It’s fantastic looking, it’s hilarious, and we’re having a lot of fun doing it,” he told Collider. “We’ve done a bunch [of episodes]. We’ve been on a break because of the pandemic. But some I was able to do at home and some I was able to do in a very deserted studio out in Burbank. To be the only one on the lot was a little weird. But yeah, we’re progressing. I don’t know when they’re gonna start [being released] but I promise you they’re really good.”
Here’s a synopsis: The series picks up six months after the original movie story, with the Monsters, Inc. power plant now harvesting the laughter of children to fuel the city of Monstropolis, thanks to Mike and Sulley’s discovery that laughter generates ten times more energy than screams.
Monsters At Work follows Tylor Tuskmon (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.
The news was first announced back in 2019, with a 2020 release date, but of course, it’s been pushed back to 2021 like many other new movies and shows.
Monsters, Inc stars will return to voice their characters, including Billy as Mike, John Goodman as Sulley, 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.
Other new voices and characters include Kelly Marie Tran as Val Little, Tylor’s lifelong friend and confidante; Henry Winkler as Fritz, the scatterbrained boss, Lucas Neff as Duncan, an opportunistic plumber, Alanna Ubach as Cutter, the officious rule follower, Stephen Stanton as Smitty and Needleman, the bumbling custodial team and Aisha Tyler as Tylor’s mom, Millie Tuskmon.
