- For Boo’s room, Pixar artists strove to create a little girl’s room that was both appealing and inviting. The room reflected her personality and creativity; an easel stood in the corner, her artwork covered the walls, and evidence of interrupted pretend-games were strewn on the floor. It needed to feel personal, but also a bit idealized, to work with the story point that her room resembled a simulator room in the scream factory.
- Meticulous care went into choosing every detail of the door that needed to be distinguishable from every other door in existence. The curves of the outlined contours, the shapes and placement of the flowers, and color choices were all intentional and deliberate.
Role in the film
At the beginning of the film, Sulley finds a remaining door on Scare Floor F that is still standing after the scaring hours and functional. He peeks into the room, only to find no one inside, but when he exits the room, he finds Boo, who has entered into the Monster World from her room, playing with his tail. Terrified, Sulley places her back into her room, but she comes back into the Monster World. Sulley then picks up Boo and carries her back into her room himself, but trips over some of Boo's toys on his way out and accidentally takes them into the Monster World. As for Boo, she has clung onto Sulley's back.
The next day, after learning from Randall Boggs that Boo's door will be on Scare Floor F while the workers go out for lunch, Mike Wazowski decides to take that advantage to convince Sulley to return Boo to her room, believing that this is their chance to do so before it is too late. However, Sulley believes that Randall is after Boo and does not help Mike, so Mike goes into the room instead, only to get captured by Randall.
Much later, when Roz appears to decide what to do about the girl after Randall's defeat and Mr. Waternoose's arrest, Sulley states that he wants to return her to her room, so Roz gives him and Mike five minutes to do so. Boo safely returns to her room and invites Sulley into the room to show him her toys. After placing Boo back in her bed, Sulley and Boo supposedly take one last look at each other before Sulley closes the door. Boo then opens the door to surprise Sulley, but only finds her closet and Sulley nowhere to be seen. Boo's door is subsequently shredded to ensure that she will never invade the Monster World again. Despite that, Mike manages to reassemble the door, and Sulley opens the door to take one more peek into the room, with Boo recognizing him, as the film closes.
- Among the toys scattered around the room is the Jessie doll from Toy Story 2, the ball from Luxo, Jr., and a Nemo squeeze toy (as a tiny "sneak peak" to Finding Nemo).
- The flowers on the door appear on the wall of Dee's room in Up.
