Disney+ has a ‘Monsters Inc.’ inspired series, ‘Monsters at Works’ in development

Have you ever wondered what it’s like to work for Monsters Incorporated? Well, thanks to Disney+, viewers have never been closer to their dream job on the scare floor. This Pixar-inspired television show was originally advertised prior to the launch of Disney+, and promised moments with Mike, Sully, and the rest of the employees at this factory.

“You won’t believe your eye! The adventures of Mike Wazowski (@BillyCrystal) and Sulley (John Goodman) continue in #MonstersAtWork, a new animated series coming to #DisneyPlus,” Disney shared on Twitter.

The streaming platform scheduled Monsters at Work for a 2020 release, along with Lamp Life, Marvel’s WandaVision, and Star Wars: The Clone Wars. However, the series has since been delayed by the Walt Disney Company.
