First images of the Monsters Inc show
While Monsters Inc. had a second movie, the new Disney + show Monsters at work is the first full-fledged sequel. This is because the first follow-up, Monster college, was a prequel. So now Mike (Billy Crystal) and Sulley (John Goodman) will finally put into practice the revelation they discovered at the end of the 2001 hit: laughter is more powerful than scream.
Monsters at work launches July 2 on Disney + and brings back those legendary voices from the original film, starring Bonnie Hunt, Jennifer Tilly, and John Ratzenberger. Plus, there’s a slew of new voices provided by the likes of Mindy Kaling, Henry Winkler, Lucas Neff and others. It feels like Disney has been tease this show for years but now the first pictures are here.
Here is the weird thing about Monsters at work. They’re Pixar characters, but Pixar didn’t. Pixar has done several things for Disney +, such as Forky asks a question and Pixar Popcorn, but this big, almost Mandalorian / WandaVision-The huge Pixar property level spin-off was made by Disney Television Animation, not Pixar itself.

However, the real test will be whether the writing holds up. Both Monsters the movies are great, in my opinion, mixing a huge spectacle with some really important life lessons. Monsters at work looks like he could live up to that – and, if it does, it’ll be really, really special. If it’s not the case? Maybe it’s okay “Sullethere Â»the good Monsters Last name. We will find out on July 2.
