Ahead of this week’s investor presentation where Disney is expected to reveal further details about its streaming service Disney+, the company teased new details about the Monsters, Inc. animated series that will be exclusive to the platform.
The show, titled Monsters at Work is scheduled for release in 2020 and will bring back John Goodman and Billy Crystal in the roles of Sulley and Mike Wazowski respectively. Other members of the original cast confirmed to return for this spinoff are Jennifer Tilly (Celia), Bob Peterson (Roze, the twin sister of the original film’s Roz), and John Ratzenberger (Yeti). Ratzenberger will also voice a new character called Bernard.
The story will take place six months after the ending of the original movie. Monsters at Work will see employees at the power plant not scaring children, but rather harvesting their laughter as the energy that fuels the city of Monstropolis.
