Monsters At Work, Monsters, Inc.

Posted by Joanna • June 11, 2019

‘Monsters At Work’ is an upcoming animated series exclusive to the  Disney streaming service Disney+ (set to launch in November of this year), and its logo has just been revealed.

It’s simple, and it works! The little nut representing the ‘O’ in work is a nice touch.

‘Monsters At Work’ is being produced by Disney Television Animation. It will take place just six months after the events of Monsters Inc., and it’s already been confirmed that Billy Crystal, John Goodman, and many other voice actors will be reprising their roles. Along with this, new characters include Tylor Tuskmon, Bernard, Val Little, and Duncan. Tylor Tuskmon has made his debut in the image below:

Tylor is a young mechanic who dreams of working alongside Mike and Sulley. We’re rooting for him already!

Monsters, Inc. Animated Series ‘Monsters At Work’ – Familiar Voice Cast Revealed

Disney, John Ratzenberger, Monsters At Work, Monsters, Inc.

Posted by Joanna • April 9, 2019

We’ve known that a new Monsters, Inc. animated series has been in the works for a good while now, but today an official title and voice cast were revealed. The series, which is being developed for Disney’s upcoming video subscription service Disney+, will be called ‘Monsters At Work’, and will arrive in 2020.

‘Monsters At Work’ will take place just six months after the events of Monsters, IncMike and Sulley will have fully settled into their new roles as Jokesters on the Laugh Floor, and who knows how serious Mike and Celia’s relationship will have gotten?

The voice cast reveal is a wonderful surprise: fans of the movie will notice that a lot of the names are very familiar… Billy Crystal is returning as Mike Wazowski, John Goodman is reprising his role as Sulley, Mike’s partner Celia will still be voiced by original voice actor Jennifer Tilly, and old favourites John Ratzenberger and Bob Peterson will lend their voices to the Yeti and Roz respectively. In fact, Bob Peterson won’t only be voicing Roz – he’ll be voicing Roze too, Roz’s twin sister. (!!!)

‘Monsters At Work’ will introduce other new characters in addition to Roze. Get ready for a long list of great names and a star-studded cast:

Tylor Tuskmon, a young mechanic who dreams of working alongside Mike and Sulley on the Laugh Floor, will be voiced by Ben Feldman, and he’ll be joined by a whole host of other characters: Bernard (also voiced by John Ratzenberger), Val Little (voiced by Kelly Marie Tran), Fritz (voiced by Henry Winkler), Duncan (voiced by Lucas Neff), Cutter (voiced by Alanna Ubach), Smitty and Needleman (both voiced by Stephen Stanton) and Millie Tuskmon (voiced by Aisha Tyler).

A quick aside – Alanna Ubach has voiced a Pixar character before: Mama Imelda in Coco!

A lot of the newly revealed voice actors have been tweeting about their excitement, so it’s easy to tell ‘Monsters At Work’ has had a lot of heart put into it. We’ll be looking forward to teasers and sneak peeks of the look of the series, which will hopefully be coming our way in the next few months.

A very Pixar Halloween!

Art, Monsters, Inc., Ratatouille, Sanjay's Super Team, The Incredibles, Toy Story

Posted by Simoa • October 31, 2016

To celebrate the ghoulish day of October 31, Pixar has re-imagined horror movie posters with our favorite Pixar characters. Although “Toy Story of TERROR!” (2013) is the only Halloween themed Pixar offering, these new posters show the sinister potential in these popular and heartwarming films. Can we ever expect a full length horror movie from Emeryville (low on the gore)? Or a chilling ghost story? Let’s hope so! In the meantime, enjoy the frightfully fantastic posters. (via twitter).

So this is definitely funny rather than sinister, but a Rex that’s actually scary?! That is indeed scary.

All soul sucking Insuricare and no hero work makes Bob a dull boy…

This wouldn’t be the first time Sulley terrified Boo!

 

After all, a boy's best friend is his rat...

‘Monsters University’ Featurette Introduces the Premise!

Monsters University, Monsters, Inc.

Posted by Brkyo614 • February 8, 2013

Mike and Sulley are one of the classic Pixar duos, set apart by their clear longtime affection for one another. As Monsters University director Dan Scanlon explains in this featurette, that sense of history provided plenty of material to work with for the upcoming prequel.

Uploaded by the folks at Animation Fascination, the promo appears to be the one that will be included with the February 19 Monsters, Inc. Blu-ray reissue. Along with a batch of new concept art, be sure to stick around for a first clip from the movie.

Looks like a new trailer won’t be far off!

Does the story of Monsters University sound promising to you?

New Stills from ‘Monsters University’ Debut! [UPDATE]

Monsters University, Monsters, Inc.

Posted by Brkyo614 • December 12, 2012

Although Monsters Univeristy isn’t out until June 21, Pixar’s 3D conversion of the original Monsters, Inc. makes its way into theaters next week. In anticipation, Entertainment Weekly has released two new stills from Monsters U, showcasing the rocky roots of Mike and Sulley’s friendship.

Director Dan Scanlon explains, "This is roughly around the time Mike and Sulley meet. […] They’re at a fraternity party, and this is Mike and Sulley getting off on the wrong foot a little bit." Adding on, producer Kori Rae says "They both approach life in different ways. Mike is the go-getter type, anything is possible, and he’s the super-hard worker. Sulley is different because he’s a great scarer, he has this natural ability, but Mike has to work for it."

In a Reddit AMA earlier today, Pete Docter said the film "is turning [out] really well — it looks fantastic and is really funny." Hopefully we’ll get a better peek at the film when the next trailer premieres.

What do you expect from Monsters University?

UPDATE: Disney•Pixar have put up another new still on their Tumblr page! Looks to be from the same college prank scene from the first image.

Two New ‘Monsters University’ Posters!

Monsters University, Monsters, Inc., Poster

Posted by Brkyo614 • November 30, 2012

In what’s likely the first step in a new marketing phase for the upcoming movie, Disney has revealed a pair of new Monsters University posters for domestic and foreign markets.

The first poster, intended for US audiences, harkens back to the ad campaign for the original film. It’s a tad plain, but the minimal text and background suggests that the studio has plenty of faith in audiences’ connection with Mike and Sully.

The international one, on the other hand, is full of detail and shows a more antagonistic relationship between the duo. There are even a few clever nods to the original film; see if you can find Little Mikey and an A113 reference.

Look for these posters at the movies before Monsters University opens on June 21.

(Thanks, ComingSoon.net)

Disney•Pixar Screens New ‘Monsters University’ Clip!

Monsters University, Monsters, Inc.

Posted by Brkyo614 • November 26, 2012

Looking for more Monsters University details before the next trailer? IGN had a first look at the film at a recent press event (at the University of Southern California, fittingly) where Disney and Pixar screened footage from both Monsters, Inc. 3D and the upcoming prequel. They recap the never-before-seen sequence below (beware of potential spoilers):

"After being kicked out of the scarer program at Monsters University, Mike and Sully realize they must set aside their rivalry and work together if they’re going to get back into the scarer program. The only way to do this is to join a fraternity, which in their case is Oozma Kappa, and eventually compete in The Scare Games. Alas, this ‘OK’ frat is far from OK. In a nod to underdog flicks such as Revenge of the Nerds and The House Bunny, Mike and Sulley quickly discover that their frat is for the very, very uncool kids.

First, there’s Don Carlton, a middle-aged monster who’s gone back to school after being laid off from his job. Then there are the twins Terry and Terri, a pair of squabbling Siamese twin monsters. Art is the equivalent of the ubiquitous dorm stoner, a ‘New Age philosophy major’ who doesn’t exactly scream effort. Finally, there’s Squishy, a nice blob who looks exactly as his namesake suggests. These outcasts refer to their frat house living room as ‘Party Central’ (and, no, it isn’t).

Mike and Sulley are less than impressed with their new frat brothers, and realize it’s pretty much up to them if Oozma Kappa is going to make it into the Scare Games. After retiring to their room, which is tiny and has bunk beds, Mike and Sulley investigate strange noises coming from the basement. They gingerly make their way downstairs where they discover their frat brothers, cloaked and their features discernible only by candlelight.

A creepy initiation ritual begins but is quickly interrupted by the lights being turned on, revealing the basement to be the laundry room. Squishy’s matronly mom calls downstairs to her son, revealing that the OK frat house is, in fact, Squishy’s mom’s house. She proceeds to do the laundry while the boys finish their initiation rite for Mike and Sully."

Production designer Ricky Nierva also teased the returns of some fan favorites from the original, including Randall, Fungus, Celia, Waternoose, and the Abominable Snowman.

Overall, it sounds like the movie has the potential to be one of Pixar’s funnier films, even if IGN notes the footage was a bit more childish than typical Pixar fare. Monsters University hits theatres on June 21, 2013.

Do you think MU will be hilarious or just derivative?

Woody’s News Round-Up! (11/20/12)

Academy Awards, Blu-Ray, Brave, La Luna, Monsters, Inc., Pixar Employees, Round-Ups, Steve Jobs

Posted by Brkyo614 • November 20, 2012

As the year comes to a close, the excitement surrounding Brave and other 2012 Pixar releases is settling down; all that’s left is the December 19 release of Monsters, Inc. 3D. Nonetheless, a few worthwhile Pixar stories have made the rounds recently.

Pixar Honors Steve Jobs: Many forget the influence of the late Steve Jobs on Pixar’s upbringing, providing essential financial support and leadership for the company up until his death. The studio’s staff, though, have certainly not forgotten – in honor of Jobs’ legacy, the studio recently erected a sign above the entrance to its main building in Emeryville, officially declaring it "The Steve Jobs Building". (Via Pixar Times)

Enrico Casarosa Unveils La Luna Statue: Following his previous tease, La Luna director Enrico Casarosa recently tweeted a first look at a maquette based on the short’s lead character, Bambino. Just 500 will be available exclusively at the Pixar studio store next month, and a wider release is unfortunately unlikely.

Amazon Lists Monsters, Inc. for 3D Blu-ray Release: A month prior to the 3D theatrical release, Amazon is already listing a 5-disc 3D Blu-ray edition of Monsters, Inc. for pre-order. No release date has been announced yet, but check back in the coming months. (Via Pixar Talk)

First "For Your Consideration" Ad for Brave: With the movie awards season rapidly approaching, Pixar is aiming to drum up some enthusiasm among critics through a new ad for Brave, recently seen in Variety. Likely the first of many, the print ad aims to net the film a few Oscar nods by reminding readers of the visceral beauty of Brave. (Awards Daily, via Pixar Talk)
