Disney announced last year that a Monsters Inc. spinoff series will be coming to Disney+ sometime in 2020. So far, details have been very limited but it appears that we might finally see the show next month, in March 2020.
The new Disney+ Original animated series follows Tylor Tuskmon (voiced by Ben Feldman), an ambitious, yet clumsy monster who is set to begin his dream job as a Scarer when the news hits that Monsters, Inc. is now harvesting children’s laughter instead of screams the laughter of children to fuel the city of Monstropolis. Tylor accepts an entry-level job with the facilities team in hopes of someday making his way up to the factory Laugh Floor to become a Jokester alongside his idols Mike and Sulley (voiced by Billy Crystal and John Goodman).
In an article about the Super Bowl commercials, Ad Age reported:
A spinoff of the Monsters, Inc. franchise, Monsters at Work will bow next month on Disney Plus.
This absolutely isn’t confirmation that we’ll see the show next month as Disney hasn’t officially confirmed anything yet. The show was also missing from the trailer that Disney released announcing new content coming in 2020.
Many fans have complained that Disney is lacking major original content now that The Mandalorian and other launch titles have finished. Disney will be launching in many European countries next month so it wouldn’t surprise us to see this show being used to help promote that.
