During the Annecy International Animation Festival in France, Disney released the first official promo art for their upcoming Monsters Inc. animated spinoff series titled Monsters at Work, offering us our first look at the newest character Tylor Tuskmon along with beloved characters Sully and Mike Wazowski. The series is set to debut sometime in 2020, exclusively on Disney’s upcoming streaming service Disney+.
Monsters at Work picks up six months after the original movie with the power plant at its center now harvesting the laughter of children to fuel the city of Monstropolis. The series follows Tylor Tuskmon (Ben Feldman), an eager and talented mechanic on the Monsters, Inc. Facilities Team who dreams of working on the Laugh Floor alongside Mike and Sulley. John Goodman and Billy Crystal are set to reprise their roles as Sully and Mike Wazowski for the spin-off series.
Also starring in the voice cast are franchise originals John Ratzenberger as Yeti, Jennifer Tilly as Celia, Bob Peterson as Roz, and franchise newcomers Ben Feldman (Superstore), Kelly Marie Tran (Star Wars: The Last Jedi), Henry Winkler (Barry), Lucas Neff (Raising Hope), Alanna Ubach (Coco), Stephen Stanton (Star Wars Resistance) and Aisha Tyler (Archer).
Tran will voice Val Little, Tylor’s lifelong friend and confidante; Winkler will voice Fritz, the scatterbrained boss; Neff will voice Duncan, an opportunistic plumber; Ubach will voice Cutter, the officious rule follower; Stanton will voice Smitty and Needleman, the bumbling custodial team; and Tyler will voice Tylor’s mom, Millie Tuskmon.
