Billy Crystal Shares Update on ‘Monsters at Work‘ Disney+ Series. Production is well underway for the highly anticipated Monsters, Inc. Disney+ animated series, Monsters at Work. Though the series was intended to release on Disney+ in 2020, unexpected delays caused by the pandemic forced production to be pushed back.
Now, Billy Crystal and John Goodman have returned, alongside fellow cast members Ben Feldman, Kelly Marie Tran, Alanna Ubach, Jennifer Tilly, John Ratzenberger, Bob Peterson. “The show, which comes from creator and executive producer Roberts Gannaway, will follow young monster Tylor Tuskmon (Feldman), an eager and talented young mechanic on the Monsters, Inc. Facilities Team (MIFT). Tyler dreams of working his way up to the factory Laugh Floor to become a jokester alongside his idols, Mike and Sulley.”
Recently, series star Billy Crystal spoke virtually with Collider about the project and shared an exciting update! Crystal stated:
“It’s a series. John Goodman and I are Sully and Mike. The show, time-wise, starts six months after ‘Monsters, Inc.’ ended. So now, we’re on the Laugh Floor. We’ve created all of the new, young, great characters with some great voice actors, and John and I are reprising our parts. I tell ya, it’s [been] 20 years [since the release of ‘Monsters, Inc.’] and that movie looked amazing 20 years ago. It’s coming up to the 20th anniversary, I believe in September [Editor’s note: ‘Monsters, Inc.‘ will celebrate its 20th anniversary in November]. It’s fantastic looking, it’s hilarious, and we’re having a lot of fun doing it.”
“Yeah, we’ve done a bunch [of episodes]. We’ve been on a break because of the pandemic. But some I was able to do at home and some I was able to do in a very deserted studio out in Burbank. To be the only one on the lot was a little weird. But yeah, we’re progressing. I don’t know when they’re gonna start [being released] but I promise you they’re really good.” He continued, “Some are full length. Some are half-hour. It’s hard to tell when you’re just reading. But they’re full scripts and it’s a continuing story, so I think it’s really gonna be fun.”
