Disney has released the full trailer for Pixar’s upcoming series Monsters at Work, which is a sequel series to the animated films Monsters University and Monsters Inc. The story continues to follow Sully (John Goodman) and Mike (Billy Crystal) as they are put in charge of Monsters Inc., and they are now hiring monsters to make kids laugh. This is a surprise for one particular monster who is looking to join the company thinking he’s going to scare kids.
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, voiced by Ben Feldman, 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.”
The series also stars Jennifer Tilly as Celia; John Ratzenberger as Yeti; Mindy Kaling as Val Little, an enthusiastic member of the Monsters, Inc. Facilities Team (aka MIFT); Bonnie Hunt as Ms. Flint, responsible for recruiting and training the funniest monsters to become Jokesters.; Henry Winkler as Fritz, the scatterbrained boss; Lucas Neff as Duncan, an opportunistic plumber; and Alanna Ubach as Cutter, the officious rule follower. Voicing additional characters are Stephen Stanton (Star Wars Resistance) as Smitty and Needleman, the bumbling custodial team at Monsters, Inc., and Aisha Tyler (Archer) as Tylor’s mom, Millie Tuskmon.
Monsters At Work will begin streaming Friday, July 2, exclusively on Disney+. It looks like it’ll be a fun show!
