Mike and Sulley Monsters Inc

The only known Pixar property being developed for exclusive content on Disney+ is a television spinoff series of Monsters, Inc. Based on the 2001 film of the same name that saw working class monsters generate scares in the real world to power their secret city, the early Pixar film received a prequel, Monsters University, in 2013.

Serving as a continuation to the two theatrical films, Monsters at Work takes place approximately six months after the events of the original film focusing on new characters Tylor Tuskmon, a mechanic on the Monsters, Inc. Facilities Team, pursuing his dream of working on the Laugh Floor with Sully and Mike. On his floor, he is joined by Val Little, his best friend; Fritz, his boss; Duncan, a plumber; Smitty and Needleman, the teenage maintenance pair from the film and Cutter, described as the rule-follower. Original stars Billy Crystal and John Goodman have both been confirmed to return and reprise their roles as the main characters joined by new voice actors Ben Feldman, Kelly Marie Tran, Henry Winkler, Aisha Tyler and Lucas Neff.



The Book of Enchantment show will focus on classic Disney villains. Based on a series of novels written by Serena Valentino with each title centered on a different villain, it is unknown if the series will be anthology style or feature an overarching, connecting story or if it will be live-action or animated.

The series is being developed by Michael Seitzman (Quantico) and will reportedly include characters from Beauty and the Beast, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs and The Little Mermaid. The series is expected to begin principal photography sometime next year.


The most recently discussed Disney+ original series is Secret Society of Second Born Royals, though it has yet to be officially confirmed. The show, one of the streaming service's few totally original concepts, features a teenage princess who is second in line for the throne of her home kingdom. She is sent to a summer school where she finds out that she and the other members of royalty attending the school actually have supernatural powers.

The show will be produced by Austin Winsberg (Gossip Girl) and Mile Karz (The Nut Job) and written by Alex Litvak (Predators) and Andrew Green (Hannah Montana). Anna Mastro (unREAL) will serve as a director on the series.


The first MCU animated series on Disney+, Marvel's What If?, like its comic book series inspiration, will tell alternate universe stories providing potential tangents classic stories could have gone under different circumstances in an anthology format with MCU actors expected to reprise their roles voicing the animated incarnations of their characters.
