The series is set to take place following the conclusion of the series’ original film “Monsters, Inc.” If you don’t remember, the film finished with the firing of its CEO and the new business model of collecting children’s laughter instead of cries.
The series will follow a monster named Tylor Tuskmon, who was hired to be come a scarer only to realize that everything has changed overnight.
“Animation continues to be one of the cornerstones of Disney magic and story-telling, across Disney Channels and excitedly, now on the new streaming platform, Disney Plus,” said Helene Etzi, country manager at The Walt Disney Company France. “As a company, we are privileged to work with so many creative masterminds, both here in France and across Europe, who are first in class when it comes to relaying timeless stories for all members of the family.”
“Monsters at Work” is set to officially premiere on Disney+ on July 2!
