The Big Picture

  • Toy Story and Monster, Inc. have similarities as both feature unlikely friends who find trouble, but the connection between the two franchises is thin.
  • A fan theory suggests that Boo from Monsters, Inc. grows up to be Andy's mom in Toy Story, but there are flaws in this theory.
  • Pete Docter, Chief Creative Officer of Pixar, debunked the theory and explained that the Easter eggs in Pixar films are not meant to impact the storylines of other films.
