Disney+ is bringing back the classic chipmunk duo, Chip 'n' Dale, for a rebooted cartoon show to be launched in November. The streaming service also shared a first look at the logo for the anticipated upcoming original series Monsters At Work, set for premiere in 2020. The news was revealed today at Annecy International Animated Film Festival in Annecy, France.
Chip ‘n’ Dale, starring the world’s most famous chipmunk duo, combines a traditional style of animation with contemporary, comedic narratives.

The series will be produced by Xilam, the award-winning independent production studio behind hits such as Paprika and Mr. Magoo.
The 39 episodes - each spanning 7 minutes - will feature the lovable chipmunk troublemakers in a non-verbal, classic style comedy, following the ups and downs of two little creatures living life in the big city. The series is directed by Jean Cayrol and produced by Marc du Pontavice.
