Monsters at Work First Look Photo

Monsters Inc. is coming to Disney+ as part of the Pixar Animation library of films that will be available on the new streaming service. But it’s also getting an animated workplace comedy sequel series that will focus on a new main character working at the Monstropolis corporation at a rather confusing time.

As we previously learned, Monsters at Work takes place six months after the original movie as the power plant that used to harvest children’s screams now aims to use their more powerful laughter to power the city. The series follows a new employee named Tylor Tuskmon (voiced by Ben Feldman), fresh out of school (where he graduated Scarem Cum Laude) who was hired to be a scarer on the scare floor, but on his first day, the company switches to laughter. See the Monsters at Work first look photo below. Read More »
