From the creators of Inside Out and The Incredibles, Walt Disney and Pixar Animation Studios are coming with a new animated movie Turning Red.
Turning Red is an American coming of age fantasy comedy animated movie, produced by Lindsey Collins. The movie will be available to watch on Disney+. It was initially planned to be released in theater. Unfortunately, since another wave of COVID-19 with the Omicron variant is coming, they decided to change the plan.
Directed by Domee Shi with the screenplay by Julia Cho and Domee Shi, this movie will be the first Pixar movie that is directed only by a woman.
This mystical and heartwarming movie will set in Toronto, Canada, around the year of 2002 and 2003. It will revolve around our lead character Meilin “Mei-Mei” Lee, a 13 years old Chinese-Canadian ordinary girl who always tries to do what her parents say no matter how she wants to enjoy her adolescence time. However, because her ancestors had a mystical connection with red pandas, one day Mei turns into a fluffy cute clumsy giant red panda whenever she feels extreme feelings like stressed, angry, or excited.
The great thing about this movie is the details that show about early 2000’s, like the fashion, Tamagotchis, even one of the feature songs is It’s Gonna be Me by 2000’s boy band NSYNC.
After the release of the latest Walt Disney and Pixar Animation Studios Luca, many people cannot wait to see Turning Red, as it will hopefully be as delighted.
