Disney announced previously that a new Disney+ Original series called “Monsters At Work” will be coming soon. This series will be a sequel to the beloved Pixar movie “Monsters Inc” and we couldn’t be more excited.
What Is “Monsters At Work” Plot?
Inspired by Disney and Pixar’s Academy Award-winning feature film “Monsters, Inc.,” the series picks up six months after the original movie’s story, with the Monsters, Inc. power plant now 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. Tylor Tuskmon is an eager and talented young mechanic on the Monsters, Inc. Facilities Team (MIFT) who dreams of working his way up to the factory Laugh Floor to become a jokester alongside his idols Mike and Sulley.
Who Is Creating “Monsters At Work”
The series is being developed and is executive produced by Disney animation veteran Bobs Gannaway (“Mickey Mouse Clubhouse,” “Planes: Fire & Rescue”) with Ferrell Barron (“Planes: Fire & Rescue”) serving as producer. Kat Good (“Penn Zero: Part-Time Hero”) and Rob Gibbs (“Monsters, Inc.”) are directors.
