Disney+ has just announced that their much anticipated Monsters Inc. spin-off animated series, Monsters at Work will premiere on the streaming platform, July 7th. New episodes will drop every Wednesday, after that. Here is what you can expect from the upcoming show:
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.
Monsters at Work stars Ben Feldman as Tyler Tuskmon, Mindy Kaling as Val Little, Henry Winkler as Fritz, Lucas Neff as Duncan and Alanna Ubach as Cutter. John Goodman and Billy Crystal will also be returning as James P. “Sulley” Sullivan and Mike Wazowski, respectively.

I cannot help, but be excited for this new series! The original Monsters Inc. is one of my all-time favorite Pixar films. Also, with Goodman and Crystal returning, the gorgeous animation, the new story hook and with Disney transporting us back to Monstropolis, everything is leading to this being one of my most anticipated series of the summer.
