The first image from Monsters at Work has been released. The series is a spin-off from the 2001 Pixar hit Monsters Inc and hits Disney+ on July 2.

The image has been revealed by IGN. It shows the group of all-new monsters who work on the Laugh Floor of Monsters, Incorporated. They are Tylor Tuskmon (Ben Feldman), Fritz (Henry Winkler), Val Little (Mindy Kaling), Cutter (Alanna Ubach), and Duncan (Lucas Neff). Check it out below:

In March, Disney released details about these new characters in a series of tweets. Monsters at Work will also see the return of Billy Crystal and John Goodman as Mike and Sully, the main characters from both Monsters Inc. and its sequel Monsters University.

Disney has also released an official synopsis for the show. It reads, "Monsters At Work takes place the day after the Monsters, Incorporated power plant started 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.

"It follows the story 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 lands a job at Monsters, Incorporated, and discovers that scaring is out and laughter is in. After Tylor is temporarily reassigned to the Monsters, Inc. Facilities Team (MIFT), he must work alongside a misfit bunch of mechanics while setting his sights on becoming a Jokester."

Pixar's latest movie is Luca, and that arrives on Disney+ in June. Check out the latest Luca trailer, and then read why some Pixar employees are reportedly not happy about the decision to send it straight to streaming.
