Disney is going all in on its new streaming service. Disney+, which is set to debut in fall, will feature everything that Disney has ever created. Yes, from the old fantasia movies to the Lion King, to Avengers & Star Wars, every single piece of film or television created by Disney will be on Disney+.
Now, the media empire is planning on bringing back some classics with a new twist. At this year’s Annecy Intl. Animation Festival in France, Disney announced a reboot of one of its classic animated series and shared updates on the streaming service. Per Variety:
The afternoon kicked off with a stand-alone Studio Focus for “Monsters at Work,” the upcoming serialization of the popular “Monsters, Inc.” Chip ‘n’ Dale, will be rebooted by the House of Mouse for its Disney Plus streaming platform. Also announced at the press conference was the Disney acquisition of BBC Studio’s “Bluey,” a series which turns on a highly imaginative Blue Heeler dog and her canine pals. Exclusive Annecy trailers were screened for two upcoming original animated series, “Amphibia” from “Gravity Falls’s” Matt Braly, and “The Owl House” from one of Variety’s former “10 Animators to Watch” Dana Terrace.
John Goodman and Billy Crystal will both return to reprise their roles in ‘Monsters At Work’, which also released a trailer during Annecy International.
