Disney fans can look forward to a slew of original movies and TV series that will air on the upcoming streaming service, Disney+. The lineup will include ‘Star Wars’ and Marvel, but now we can add ‘Monsters, Inc.’ to the slate!
New TV series, ‘Monsters at Work,’ will stream on Disney+. Disney recently revealed some new details about the series, along with the first piece of official promotional artwork. You can check out the artwork below!
‘Monsters at Work’ will tie into the events of the first ‘Monsters, Inc.’ film. John Goodman and Billy Crystal will return as Sully and Mike, who will be training a new employee working on the Laugh Floor. 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 will also reprise their roles from the original movie.
In a recent statement, Helene Etzi, country manager at The Walt Disney Company France, said:
“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. 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.”
Orion Ross, VP of animation, digital, and acquisitions for Disney Europe & Africa added:
“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. 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.”
While ‘Monsters at Work’ won’t be available to stream when Disney+ launches in November, the series will arrive sometime in 2020.
