— My Heart Just Exploded

Is a movie about Boo from "Monsters, Inc." ~actually~ happening?

Pixar/Disney

It’s crazy to think that Monsters, Inc. came out all the way back in 2001, because, like most Pixar films, it has so much re-watch value (and it teaches us valuable life lessons).

Remember the character of Boo? That sweet, wide-eyed little human girl who was fearless around all the monsters except Randall?

Well, there’s been lots of buzz about a new movie centered ALL AROUND HER, because of this poster that began circling the internet waves.

💓TAG SOMEONE WHO WOULD WANT TO SEE THIS MOVIE 💓 - Hi everyone, my name is Nico. I'm a huge Disney fan, and I decided to make a Disney account, where I would post concept art and ideas for upcoming Disney movies. Please tell your friends about my page to help my page grow! 💕💕 - CONCEPT: Disney/Pixar, "BOO." This movie would be the sequel to Disney Pixar's "Monsters Inc." Boo is all grown up, and she decides to revisit her past. She hasn't seen Mike and Sully for years. She travels far and overrides fears and obstacles just to find Mike and Sully again. Join "Boo" in her journey to find the monsters that were once in her closet. EDIT: YES THIS IS ANNA FROM FROZEN! I edited her hair, eyes, clothes, and face. I changed her nose to make it look a bit more like boo! I'm so happy with how popular this edit became. 💖💖 #MonstersInc #monstersinc2 #Boo #Disney #Pixar #monstersuniversity

Understandably, devoted fans of Boo and Monsters, Inc. went into a frenzy! Could Pixar be making our wildest dreams come true?! A movie that explores Boo’s adult life?

The answer is, unfortunately, no. This was just a (cruel!) rumor started by a Disney fan named Nico, who runs the Instagram account conceptdisney. The caption of Nico’s account states, “I make Disney concept movie edits that will probably never come true.” 

It’s hard to express in words the disappointment we are feeling right now, but this is pretty accurate.

Of course, it wasn’t Nico’s intention to shatter the dreams of Monsters, Inc. fans everywhere; he simply thought it would be cool to create some kick-ass concept art for fictional movies. And it is!

To achieve the grown-up look of Boo, Nico explains in his Instagram post that he edited a picture of Anna from Frozen, changing her facial features and hair to look more like Boo. So, you can’t fault creativity. Good job on the Boo poster, even if it isn’t real.

If you’re into seeing more fictional movie sequel posters, Nico has designed one for Ratatouille and Wreck-it-Ralph, and they’re pretty impressive as well. None of this takes away our sadness about Boo, though.

We would very much like a Boo-movie to be real someday, so Pixar… please take note, and deliver accordingly.
