Disney+ Announces Voice Cast/Character Images For ‘Monsters At Work’

Disney+ has announced the voice cast of the upcoming animated series Monsters At Work, which includes a number of returning names alongside ‘Superstore’s Ben Feldman, actor/writer/comedian Mindy Kaling, and the legendary Henry Winkler.

‘Monsters At Work’ takes place the day after the Monsters, Incorporated power plant started harvesting the laughter of children to fuel the city of Monstropolis, thanks to Mike and Sulley’s discovery that laughter generates ten times more energy than screams. It follows the story of Tylor Tuskmon (voiced by Feldman), an eager young monster who graduated top of his class at Monsters University and always dreamed of becoming a Scarer until he lands a job at Monsters, Incorporated, and discovers that scaring is out and laughter is in. After Tylor is temporarily reassigned to the Monsters, Inc. Facilities Team (MIFT), he must work alongside a misfit bunch of mechanics while setting his sights on becoming a Jokester.

Kaling will voice the role of Val Little, an enthusiastic member of the Monsters, Inc. Facilities Team (aka “MIFT”). The rest of the MIFT crew includes Henry Winkler as Fritz, the scatterbrained boss; Lucas Neff (‘Raising Hope’) as Duncan, an opportunistic plumber; and Alanna Ubach (‘Coco’) as Cutter, the officious rule follower.

The new characters joins Mike Wazowski and James P. “Sulley” Sullivan, who will again be voiced by renowned actors Billy Crystal and John Goodman, and Bonnie Hunt, who will reprise her role as Ms. Flint. She was formerly in charge of training new Scarers at Monsters, Inc., but will now manage the department responsible for recruiting and training the funniest monsters to become Jokesters.

In addition to Crystal, Goodman and Hunt, returning cast members from the original movies include John Ratzenberger as Yeti and Tylor’s dad, Bernard, Jennifer Tilly as Celia Mae and Bob Peterson as Roze, twin sister to his original “Monsters, Inc.” character, Roz. Voicing additional characters are Stephen Stanton (‘Star Wars Resistance’) as Smitty and Needleman, the bumbling custodial team at Monsters, Inc., and Aisha Tyler (‘Archer’) as Tylor’s mom, Millie Tuskmon.

Produced by Disney Television Animation, the series was developed and is executive produced by Disney animation veteran Bobs Gannaway (‘Mickey Mouse Clubhouse’, ‘Planes: Fire & Rescue’). Academy Award-nominated Sean Lurie (‘Inner Workings’) is producer, and Kat Good (‘Big Hero 6 The Series’) and Steve Anderson (“Meet the Robinsons”) serve as supervising directors. The late Rob Gibbs (‘Monsters, Inc.’) also served as director on some of the earlier episodes.

Monsters At Work‘ premieres Friday, 2nd July 2021 on Disney+ worldwide.
