Disney has an entire slate of original movies and TV series set to air on its upcoming streaming service, Disney+, which arrives later this year. From live-action Star Wars shows like The Mandalorian, to Marvel projects that tie-in with the MCU, there are all sorts of projects for fans to get excited about. That lineup also includes the Monsters, Inc. TV series, Monsters at Work. During this week’s Annecy International Animation Festival in France, Disney unveiled some new details about the series, as well as the first official promo art.
Monsters at Work is tied directly to the events of the first Monsters, Inc. film, and it features the voices you’ll remember from the big screen franchise. John Goodman and Billy Crystal will reprise their roles as Sully and Mike, respectively, and are going to be aiding a new employee working on the Laugh Floor.

The show picks up six months after end of Monsters, Inc., and follows a new batch of recruits who have joined the company. New cast members for the series include Ben Feldman, Kelly Marie Tran, Henry Winkler, Lucas Neff, Alanna Ubach, Stephen Stanton, and Aisha Tyler. John Ratzenberger, Jennifer Tilly, and Bob Peterson are returning from the original film.
“Animation continues to be one of the cornerstones of Disney magic and story-telling, across Disney Channels and excitedly, now on the new streaming platform, Disney Plus,” said Helene Etzi, country manager at The Walt Disney Company France. “As a company, we are privileged to work with so many creative masterminds, both here in France and across Europe, who are first in class when it comes to relaying timeless stories for all members of the family.”
“This is a hugely busy and exciting year and there’s no better time to be working in animation, which continues to be at the heart of what we do at Disney,” added Orion Ross, VP of animation, digital, and acquisitions for Disney Europe & Africa. “We are proud to announce this exciting slate, working with phenomenally talented international creatives to deliver stories that are full of fun, creating characters that are extremely loveable, and showcasing a breadth of animation styles.”
Monsters at Work won’t be available to stream when Disney+ launches in November, but will arrive sometime in 2020.
