Monsters at Work is an animated series based on Monsters, Inc. It was first confirmed in a Disney press release on November 9, 2017 as a Disney+ exclusive. It was originally set for premiere in 2020, but it was delayed to July 2, 2021 and then to July 7, 2021. This series is a sequel to the film and was created by Pete Docter, who also directed the movie. The show will consist of 10 episodes, running until September 1, 2021.
It is the second to have its animation outsourced while still done under Pixar's supervision after Buzz Lightyear of Star Command.
It is the first to be a Disney+ exclusive.
This is the first Pixar TV series where the original voice cast members reprise their roles.
This is the first 3D animated series, based on a 3D animated film. Buzz Lightyear of Star Command, Tangled: The Series, and Big Hero 6: The Series are all 2D animated series based on 3D animated films.
This is the first non-Disney Junior series from Disney Television Animation to be animated in CGI.
According to Billy Crystal, the first season consists of ten episodes.
The series picks up one day following Henry J. Waternoose III's arrest near the end of the original movie, but takes place before the "epilogue" in which Mike rebuilt Boo's door and reunited Sulley with her. Boo wasn't brought back to the series as the creators wished to keep her relationship with Sulley following the events of the first movie up to the interpretation of the viewers. It has nothing to do with not loving Boo and not wanting to see her again, it's just that the relationship is so precious that they want to leave it at that, everything can't always stay the same. However, Boo is mentioned in The Damaged Room, despite not appearing herself.
Randall won't be brought back to the series, due to him being banished in the human world.
Mr. Waternoose is arrested from the company and is no longer the owner of the factory anymore, though despite not appearing in the series himself in person rather than being pictured.
The production team visited two power plants to get an idea of what it was like working there and to get a sense of how people responded.
