Monsters at Work cast and crew

Fans of the original 2001 film will be pleased to hear that Billy Crystal, John Goodman, John Ratzenberger, Jennifer Tilly, Bob Peterson and Bonnie Hunt are all reprising their roles as Mike Wazowski, James P. “Sulley” Sullivan, Yeti, Celia Mae, Roz and Ms. Flint respectively. However, these older characters are more supporting cast to the new crew.

Monsters at Work will focus mainly on Tylor Tuskmon, a recent Scare Major graduate from Monsters University who is joining his idols – Mike and Sully – as a technician. Tyler is voiced by Ben Feldman.

Mindy Kaling is playing Val Little, Tyler’s best friend. Henry Winkler is playing Fritz, Tyler’s boss. Aisha Tyler is voicing Millie Tuskmon, Tyler’s mother. Finally, the more ‘rival’ role in the show will be a character called Duncan, who is voiced by Lucas Neff.

What is the plot of Monsters at Work?

Monsters at Work serves as a direct sequel series to Monsters, Inc., with the first episode kicking off just after Mike and Sully decided to harvest children’s laughter to fuel their power plants, rather than terrified screams.

Tylor Tuskmon had originally always wanted to be a Scarer – but when he joins the facilities team and discovers the new method for generating power is to joke around, he must learn to adapt and impress his colleagues if he has any hope of advancing in the company.
