'Monsters At Work' Full Cast List: Meet Billy Crystal, John Goodman and other stars on Disney+ show
'Monsters At Work' starts streaming on Disney + on July 7
'Monsters At Work' features a cast that reads like the who's who of comic talent. That's a good thing because in the world of Monsters, Inc., scarers are out and jokesters are in, after Mike (Billy Crystal) and Sulley's (John Goodman) discovery, that laughter generates 10 times more energy than screams. The Monsters, Incorporated power plant has now started harvesting the laughter of children to fuel the city of Monstropolis. However, young and eager monster Tylor Tuskmon (Ben Feldman) who has always dreamt of being a scarer, hasn't got the memo it seems.
When he lands a job at Monsters, Incorporated, he discovers that scaring is out and laughter is in. After Tylor is temporarily reassigned to the Monsters, Inc. Facilities Team (MIFT), he must work alongside a misfit bunch of mechanics while setting his sights on becoming a Jokester.
