Monsters at Work is a continuation of the Monsters Inc franchise which began back in 2001. The new Disney Plus show is both a sequel and a spin-off of the franchise which is coming to television for the first time. The series, which will be available to stream from July 7, will bring back fan favourites, Mike and Sully. However, according to executive producer Robert Burrell “Bobs” Gannaway, Boo won’t be making an appearance.
In a new interview with RadioTimes.com and other press, Gannaway explained the toddler will be missing from the spin-off.
“Just to be very clear, Boo does not make an appearance in the series, I’ll leave it at that,” he explained.
Gannaway explained that after discussing with the series director Pete Docter, the pair decided Boo’s relationship with Sully in the blockbuster film was too “precious and wonderful” and that fans would be left to decide what happened.
“So, it’s not that we don’t love Boo and don’t want to see her again,” he added. “But that relationship is so precious. We want to leave it. Let the world have that.”
Gannaway went on to add that the new series will be all “about the monster’s world” and that it won’t explore the human world at all.
The last time fans got a main entry in the Monsters Inc franchise was the 2013 film Monsters University which was a prequel to the original film.
Now, Pixar has passed the torch to Disney Animation who is overseeing the next chapter for the beloved monsters.
There will be 10 episodes in the new show which will air exclusively on Disney Plus, with each episode dropping weekly.
The show will run until the finale drops on September 1, with the show introducing fans to a variety of new monsters.
Monsters at Work is set six months after the original film and will focus on the monsters, new and old.
The original 2001 film ended with Mike (voiced by Billy Crystal) and Sully (John Goodman) discovering that laughter was a more powerful resource than screams.
Both characters will be back for the spin-off, but this time around they will be taking a backseat to introduce fans to a new generation of monsters.

Ben Feldman will be leading the series as Tylor Tuskman, a new employee of Monsters Incorporated.
Tylor will have to learn the ropes of the new business and will meet many other characters along the way.
Joining him is Mindy Kaling as Val Little, Bonnie Hunt as Ms Flint, Aisha Tyler as Millie Tuskman and Gabriel Iglesias as Gary Bibbs.
Goodman, Crystal, and Feldman all recently sat down with Entertainment Weekly to discuss the upcoming series.
The stars shared their excitement for the show, with Crystal saying the “chance to work with John [Goodman] and the great folks at Pixar and Disney… was an easy decision”.
The actor continued: “Mike is one of my favourite characters, if not my single favourite character, to play because he’s just so fun to do.”
Goodman added: “It’s like putting on a great old baseball glove. It’s comfortable, it works, you know it’s going to do you well.”
Monsters at Work begins on Disney Plus on Wednesday 7, July
