Speaking to Laughing Place, executive producer Bobs Gannaway said: “It’s been my experience that most of the actors, if not all the actors, who create a character for Disney feel great ownership of that character.

“And if you ask them to come and do more of that character, they often, given their availability, will do it. So, we didn’t have to twist anybody’s arm. Billy Crystal, John Goodman, Bonnie Hunt, all wonderful, talented people, excited to put themselves back in those characters and really own them.

“For us, I’m asking you as a viewer to come spend time with your old friends. It better look like them and sound like them, or honestly, it’s not them. So, I’m super pleased that everybody came back.”

Monsters at Work Season 2 plot

Acting as a direct sequel to Monsters Inc., the first season picked up directly after the arrest of Henry J. Waternoose.

For now, plot information is limited, but we can expect to see more trials and tribulations for Sulley and Mike as they navigate running the company together.

In an interview with Animation Scoop, showrunner Bobs Gannaway said: “Being handed the reins of Monsters, Inc., you wanna do right by it.

“That said, there’s a whole new audience out there as well. So the challenge of creating a story that will work for people who know what’s going on – and for people who are new to it – was great.”
