John Goodman and Billy Crystal are set to reprise their roles on a recurring basis along with Bonnie Hunt returning as Ms. Flint who is now head of recruitment and in charge of training the funniest monsters. In addition, Jennifer Tilly will return as Mike’s snake-haired girlfriend Celia Mae and Bob Peterson will return in his iconic role of Roz. However, the first-look image (via Collider) also came with a list of the new characters featured in the image.
