Monsters Inc Spin-Off Series Heading To Disney Streaming Service
Hairy good news.
Disney's upcoming streaming service, Disney+, does not yet have a launch date, but it is developing a hugely impressive list of new shows. We already know that there are Star Wars and Marvel series in the works, and it has now been reported that a show based on the Pixar hit Monsters Inc. is also on the way.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the series is titled Monsters at Work. John Goodman and Billy Crystal, who played monstrous pals Sully and Mike in 2002's Monsters Inc. and its 2013 sequel Monsters University, are set to reprise their roles. Also returning are John Ratzenberger as Yeti, Jennifer Tilly as Celia, and Bob Peterson as Roz.
There are a few new names joining the cast too, including Kelly Marie Tran (Star Wars: The Last Jedi), Henry Winkler (Barry, Arrested Development), Ben Feldman (Superstore), Alanna Ubach (Coco), and Stephen Stanton (Star Wars Resistance).
The new show takes place six months after the original movie. The Monsters Inc factory now processes kid's laughter in order to fuel the city of Monstropolis, and Mike and Sully are among the team working on the "laugh floor." The new show's main character is an aspiring monster called Tylor Tuskmon, played by Feldman. Monsters at Work does not have a release date yet, but THR states that it will appear in 2020. Disney+ launches on November 12 with a subscription price of $6.99 a month, or 69.99 for a year.
In terms of other Disney+ shows we know about, the Star Wars spin-off The Mandalorian recently finished production. There's also a seventh season of the animated show The Clone Wars on the way, plus a series focused on the Rogue One character Cassian Andor in the works. On the Marvel side, fans can expect Loki and Scarlet Witch shows, and a limited series focusing on the Falcon and The Winter Soldier.
