I am so excited to watch Disney/Pixar’s latest film, TURNING RED, which premieres on Disney+ on March 11, 2022!
In “Turning Red”, Mei Lee is a confident, dorky thirteen-year-old torn between staying her mother’s dutiful daughter and the chaos of adolescence. And as if changes to her interests, relationships, and body weren’t enough, whenever she gets too excited (which for a teenager is practically ALWAYS), she “poofs” into a giant red panda!
Watch the trailer for TURNING RED:
This is the first full length motion picture written and directed by the talented Domee Shi. You may remember her adorable short film, Bao, which played ahead of INCREDIBLES 2 in theaters.
I really loved “Bao” so I can’t wait to see TURNING RED! Pixar is pretty well known for portraying big emotions in a fun and meaningful way, and I’m sure TURNING RED will be no different.
In the movie, Mei and her friends are obsessed with the boy band 4*Town. I think anyone who grew up in the 1990s/2000s can relate to that, yes?

Premiering March 11, 2022 exclusively on Disney+, Turning Red tells a coming-of-age story like no other. Mei (voiced by Rosalie Chiang) is a spunky Chinese Canadian girl who turns into a red panda anytime she experiences strong emotions, and must find a way to navigate both her school life and home life in early 2000s Toronto. Mei juggles hanging out with her three best friends, the boy band they’re obsessed with, her family’s temple and her protective mother, Ming (voiced by Sandra Oh), who isn’t ready to let go of her growing daughter. Disney and Pixar’s Turning Red is directed by Domee Shi and produced by Lindsey Collins.
