Monsters at Work just added Mindy Kaling to the voice cast!
The 41-year-old actress and producer will star as Val Little, an enthusiastic member of the Monsters, Inc. Facilities Team (aka “MIFT”).
In addition to Mindy, Bonnie Hunt has also joined the upcoming animated series and will reprise her role as Ms. Flint, who was formerly in charge of training new Scarers at Monsters, Inc., but will now manage the department responsible for recruiting and training the funniest monsters to become Jokesters.
The series centers on Tylor Tuskmon (Ben Feldman), who is an eager young monster who graduated top of his class at Monsters University and always dreamed of becoming a Scarer until he lands a job at Monsters, Incorporated, and 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.
Returning to the series are Billy Crystal and John Goodman as Mike and Sully, as well as Pixar good luck charm, John Ratzenberger as Yeti and Tylor’s dad, Bernard.
Jennifer Tilly will be back as Mike’s girlfriend Celia Mae and Bob Peterson as Roze, twin sister to his original Monsters, Inc.
Monsters at Work will also star Henry Winkler as Fritz, the scatterbrained boss; Lucas Neff as Duncan, an opportunistic plumber; and Alanna Ubach as Cutter, the officious rule follower, as well as Stephen Stanton as Smitty and Needleman, the bumbling custodial team at Monsters, Inc., and Aisha Tyler as Tylor’s mom, Millie Tuskmon.
The highly anticipated series will premiere on Friday, July 2 on Disney+.
