It begins when Mary Gibbs aka Boo was little. She played with her aunts Tilly and Milly. While they play they saw a commercial for Pizza Planet. Not far away the young prince Jason is going on the trip with his parents, King Ted and Queen Isabella of Airdrie to visit Boo's home. Boo realized that Jason is here and fall in love. But the storm took him away. King Ted and Queen Isabella realized that their son is missing and hope the lost prince will return. Later that night, when it is bedtime, Boo's mother, Cassandra Gibbs sang her a lullaby telling her to find answers to her past and her lost prince. and then she and her husband, Robert Gibbs went to bed.
20 years later, Boo still dreams of marrying the lost prince. When she went back to the monster world, Boo realized that her best friends are celebrating their 20th friendiversary at Monsters, Inc.
Meanwhile, Fungus misses Randall. Then in jail, the CDA guarded Randall's cell only to realize he had turned invisible to escape.
Jason and Boo first meet in years, at the streets of San Francisco while both are grocery shopping but when a car try to run Boo over, Jason saved her and sing to her.
When Sulley found out about her forbidden love he left her alone.
When Boo met Celia she is walking to work.
Randall makes a deal with Jason, if he does get the girl of his dreams, all his dreams will come true. So he stole Jason's voice and locked it in his necklace. Jason changes into a prince again!
When Jason arrived at Monstropolis everybody bowed to him and he met Boo, who's not sure if he's the lost prince.
Later, they stopped at a theme park called Pixar DreamWorks World which brings the worlds of Pixar Animation Studios(1986-present) and DreamWorks Animation(1994-present) to life. Boo and Jason see the wonders of the theme park only to discover Randall is behind them! Boo goes through the princess's room and discovers she's a princess too. When Boo talks with them, Adora/She-Ra told her that there are 7 princesses and Merida also told her that only the 8th princess can go to the Crystal Realm, find answers to her past and return to Monstropolis to defeat Randall.
Suddenly Randall saw Boo and decided to marry her himself! So he morphs himself into the evil man, Vincent using Jason's voice. Macintosh Graves, who can turn invisible, spies on Randall and goes back to Mike to tell him Randall's evil scheme.
Later as Boo watched TV something is hypnotizing her. It was from Vincent using Jason's voice. His plan is working. When she is taken she will wonder if she can see Jason again.
A day later Terri and Terry Perry are walking when they saw the evil man looking in the mirror seeing his reflection. The conjoined monster brothers told Mike that Boo is forced to marry Randall in disguise. they think of ways to stop that wedding. Then they packed the horns and sounded the alarm. When the monster blew the small horn, they arrive to stop a disguised Randall from marrying Boo. He thought that was funny, but when the monster blew the bighorn, the villain was outraged because Jason is behind this. Vincent screamed and saw his evil necklace falling to the ground and broke. Jason's voice returned to him, Boo was no longer under his spell and Vincent sounded like Randall when he saw Boo and Jason being reunited.
As Jason revealed he is the lost prince to Boo, the sun-sets and chains appeared on Boo's wrists. Laughing victoriously, Randall transformed back into his scaly lizard-like self and carried Boo and runs away with her after revealing Jason's true identity, changing him back into a peasant.
Sulley tried to stop Randall but he refused because Boo belongs to him now. So Sulley insisted that Randall will take him instead. So he signed a crystal contract replacing Boo's signature with his own. Randall thinks he wins but Jason sliced his arm with a harpoon. Randall ordered his henchmen to kill Jason but they were defeated by Mike and his Oozma Kappa gang and arrested by Officer Tubman. Randall grew angry and uses his scepter to grow into the monster rising from the water. When Celia found out that Randall is using his scepter to make everyone bow before him she is starting to lose hope.
He tried to kill Boo but she stole his scepter, causing her to go to the Crystal Realm where she discovers answers to her past and transforms into the 8th princess.
Later she returned to Monstropolis, fully transformed and uses her wand at Randall, causing him to become the tar-covered skeleton.
Everyone is free including Sulley but a tar covered skeleton Randall interrupted them by trying to vow to kill them but Fungus betrayed him by pushing him and Sulley off the cliff. Only Randall fell to his death. When Boo's 7 Princess friends found out that Sulley is in danger they saved the day by using their skills and made a dress parachute. Sulley who wore Rapunzel's dress landed on the bed on top of the mattress store in downtown Monstropolis. Sulley is grateful to them. When Mike arrived, Sulley admired Boo's transformation into the fabled 8th princess, saying she looks different.
And so Jason and Boo were married. They have a reception at Pizza Planet and rode off to their happy ending.
