One of the first shows in development for Disney+ just got a huge update. The ‘Monsters Inc.’ spin-off television series has its cast! Also, several actors are reprising their roles from the original 2001 film and the 2013 prequel ‘Monsters University.’

So, without further ado, the cast and their roles, with the actors reprising in bold:

  • Billy Crystal (‘Monsters Inc.,’ ‘Monsters University’)
    • Mike Wazowski
  • John Goodman (‘Monsters Inc.,’ ‘Monsters University’)
    • Sulley
  • Jennifer Tilly (‘Monsters Inc.,’ ‘Family Guy’)
    • Celia Mae
  • John Ratzenberger (‘Monsters Inc.,’ ‘Monsters University’)
    • Yeti, and a new character: Bernard
  • Bob Peterson(‘Monsters Inc.,’ ‘Monsters University’)
    • Roze, twin sister to his original ‘Monsters, Inc.’ character, Roz
  • Ben Feldman (‘Silicon Valley,’ ‘Superstore’)
    • Tylor Tuskmon, an eager and talented mechanic on the Monsters, Inc. Facilities Team
  • Kelly Marie Tran (‘Star Wars: The Last Jedi,’ ‘Sorry For Your Loss’)
    • Val Little, Tylor’s lifelong friend and confidante
  • Henry Winkler (‘Arrested Development,’ ‘Barry’)
    • Fritz, the scatterbrained boss
  • Lucas Neff (‘Raising Hope,’ ‘Big Hero 6: The Series’)
    • Duncan, an opportunistic plumber
  • Alanna Ubach (‘Coco,’ ‘Gloria Bell’)
    • Cutter, the officious rule follower
  • Stephen Stanton (‘Star Wars Rebels,’ ‘Star Wars Resistance’)
    • Smitty and Needleman, the bumbling custodial team
  • Aisha Tyler (‘Archer,’ ‘Criminal Minds’)
    • Millie Tuskmon, Tylor’s mom

Moreover, the premise of the series is below:

“The series picks up six months after the original movie with the power plant at its center now harvesting the laughter of children to fuel the city of Monstropolis, thanks to Mike (Crystal) and Sulley’s (Goodman) discovery that laughter generates ten times more energy than screams. The series follows mechanic Tylor Tuskmon (Feldman), who dreams of working on the Laugh Floor alongside Mike and Sulley.”

Further, Bobs Gannaway (‘The Emperor’s New School,’ ‘Planes: Fire & Rescue’) serves as developer and executive producer. Additionally, the directors include Kat Good (‘Penn Zero: Part-Time Hero,’ ‘Big Hero 6: The Series’) and Rob Gibbs (‘Monsters, Inc.,’ ‘Mater’s Tall Tales’).

But, we still do not know if the series will be 2D or 3D animated.

‘Monsters at Work’ will premiere in 2020. Meanwhile, the Disney+ streaming service will launch in the fourth quarter of this year.
