Monsters at Work is set to premiere on Disney+ soon and fans will be happy to know that the series serves as a direct follow-up to Monsters, Inc., the beloved 2001 Pixar film, which has maintained a presence at Disney Parks around the world with attractions like Monsters, Inc. Laugh Floor and Monsters Inc. Ride & Go Seek. The movie already gave rise to a prequel, Monsters University, but after two full decades, the burgeoning franchise has finally returned in true sequel form. The link between the plot of a Disney animated series and the coronavirus pandemic may seem tenuous, but according to executive producer Bob Gannaway, COVID-19 and its effect on society were very much a factor in developing Monsters at Work.
