It begins when Boo was little. She played with her classmates, Margo, Edith and Agnes Gru. While they play they saw a commercial for Bing Bong's Pizza Parlor. Not far away the young prince Michael is going on the trip with his parents, King Ted and Queen Isabella of Airderia to visit Cass and her daughters. Boo realized that Michael 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.
14 years later, Boo still dreams of marrying the lost prince. When she went back to the monsters world, Boo realized that her best friends are celebrating her 18th birthday 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. Randall's new power is to change into any form via ooze.
Hours later the gang are still having a blast, Sulley invites his former fellow Oozma Kappas to that. But the party crashed and they turned to see Randall wearing the necklace that gave him shapeshifting powers. He blamed his former best friend Mike Wasowski and Sullivan for putting him in jail. When the party was over, Mike and Sulley will protect Boo again if anything bad will happen to them.
Randall encourages the villains including the Drunken Fish thugs to work for him.
Hours later, Mike decided to open a new show which he visits Talia, Hiccup and Bufo by host a reality show, Monsters Sing, where many monsters and Humans sing. Among them,George singing Wrecking Ball, Baby Smitty singing Memory from Cats, Talia singing Tell Me which was ruined when Van and Minny were asking directions. Felipe singing Its a Jungle out Here, Charming singing I'm Too Handsome before Baymax kick him out due to his inappropriate singing which upsets him and cries, Painter singing I'm In Your Castle, Melman doing Shakespare, Minions singing Another Drinking Irish Song, Claire and her mute friend Casey doing a slow dance, Princess Poppy singing Cups(You're Gonna Miss Me), Fritz singing Play That Song(which is originally sung by Train.)

Linda arrives at the auditions, standing on a car hood after crashed into objects. Mike went to the backstage to tell his friends, leaving Linda angry for missing her turn. She stomps on a car hood and gets hit in the face with it. Mike tells his friends to get ready when Randall entered the stage, he sang Broadway song.
Later as Boo was sleeping, Fungus waked her up and tell her that Randall will make all her dreams come true. So she followed him until they reach his old secret lab. Randall was delighted to see Boo again! So he helps Boo find the lost prince. He made a deal with her: If the lost prince married her before the sun sets, all her dream comes true but if he don't she will be put to sleep and will be his! Then Boo and her friends went to her door. When she saw Michael she met him. When Boo and Michael heard of the Blood Moon Ball coming to Monsters, Inc. they were invited. On their way to the Blood Moon Ball, Boo, Mike, Sulley and Michael meet Sanders Sullivan, Sulley's grandfather who retired to Monstropolis Oasis to teach monsters yoga. He taught Mike and Sulley downward dog.
Hours later at the Blood Moon Ball everyone is having a blast. Bing Bong challenges Oh in the Mamushka dance. Micheal asked Boo to dance with him and Meena sings Colors of the Wind. At dinner Randall performed dark magic with two clowns in front of the guests, which are surprised and Randall agrees that the festival is that way. But midnight came and Boo lost a glass slipper but Michael placed it on her foot.
Suddenly Randall saw Boo and Michael kissing and decided to marry her himself! So with his oozing powers, he morphs himself into the evil man, Vincent. 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 Vincent. His plan is working.
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 her nemesis in disguise so 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 thinks that's funny but when the monster blew the big horn, he grew angry and found out that Sulley is behind that plan. Vincent screamed when Max bite him on the butt as he tried to choke Hank and seeing his evil necklace falling to the ground and broke. Boo was no longer under his spell.
As Michael revealed he is the lost prince to Boo, the snake stick bit her plunging her to deep sleep. Laughing victoriously, Vincent disappeared and in his place is Randall!
Michael rushed to Boo's side and kissed her. Boo was awaken by the power of true love's kiss. Macintosh Graves is so surprised by this, he says "What the!?" . But this was not surprise as The Minions, Skipper And The Penguins, Painter, Nico and Pedro come into the scene to defeat Randall's minions.
During the battle, Skipper and the penguins were showing a dance off in front of the villains while the Minions hypnotizes the Drunken Fish thugs into dancing, taking their shirts off and revealing their long hair along with Painter painting monsters that explode on contact with the Beefeater Guards, Yax and the naturalists stomping on one of the villains and Nico and Pedro dropping turtles.
Later, Painter paints up an exact copy of the Excalibur. So Michael grabbed the Excalibur and chased them. With his oozing powers, Randall created a dagger to kill Boo. As he raised it at her, Michael stabbed him on his evil heart, causing him to change into a skeleton covered with ooze! With his painful scream, Randall fell to his death. The Excalibur then dissolved into Painter's chest so he could make more paintings when needed.
When Michael and Boo were married, all of them having a party by hiring a show auditions. Justin and Talia singing Lifes a happy song and Nico and Carla singing Batucada Familia with the audtion singers including Talia, Van and Minny. They have a reception at Bing Bong's Pizza Parlor and rode off to their happy ending. The movie ends with painter jumping up at the screen before saying "Anything is possible when you work as a team."
