Billy Crystal has given an update of DisneyPlus/Pixar upcoming sequel series, with both Crystal and John Goodman returning.
The TV-Series that takes place after 6 months of the film’s timeline with the two leads returning. In an interview, Billy Crystal shared some new insight on the project.
“It’s a series. John Goodman and I are Sully and Mike. The show, time-wise, starts six months after ‘Monsters, Inc.’ ended. So now, we’re on the Laugh Floor. We’ve created all of the new, young, great characters with some great voice actors, and John and I are reprising our parts. I tell ya, it’s [been] 20 years [since the release of ‘Monsters, Inc.’] and that movie looked amazing 20 years ago. It’s coming up to the 20th anniversary, I believe in September [Editor’s note: ‘Monsters, Inc.’ will celebrate its 20th anniversary in November]. It’s fantastic looking, it’s hilarious, and we’re having a lot of fun doing it.”
Due the pandemic, the recording session for season 1 has been delayed and altered but they had made it work anyway.
“Yeah, we’ve done a bunch [of episodes]. We’ve been on a break because of the pandemic. But some I was able to do at home and some I was able to do in a very deserted studio out in Burbank. To be the only one on the lot was a little weird. But yeah, we’re progressing. I don’t know when they’re gonna start [being released] but I promise you they’re really good.”
The series is expected to be released in 2021. Ben Feldman, Kelly Marie Tran, Alanna Ubach, Jennifer Tilly, John Ratzenberger, Bob Peterson has joined both the cast.
Synopsis are as following:
“Will follow young monster Tylor Tuskmon (Feldman), an eager and talented young mechanic on the Monsters, Inc. Facilities Team (MIFT). Tyler dreams of working his way up to the factory Laugh Floor to become a jokester alongside his idols, Mike and Sulley.”
