Turning Red

Luca may have only recently been released, but Pixar is already hyping up their next animated adventure – Turning Red. Following similar situations in Luca and Brave, the studio has proven to be big fans of character transformations, with Turning Red following awkward teenage girl Mei Lee who undergoes a change when she becomes too excited. However, instead of turning into a mean green fighting machine like the Hulk, Mei instead transforms into an adorable but oversized – and somewhat clumsy – red panda.

Turning Red: Cast and Plot!

Rosalie Chiang will make her theatrical debut in Turning Red as lead Mei Lee. She previously appeared in short films Soiled and The Interns. Sandra Oh will bring some star power as Mei’s overbearing mother Ming, with Oh of course known for playing Cristina Yang on Grey’s Anatomy between 2005 and 2014 and for her award-winning portrayal of the titular character in smash-hit spy thriller Killing Eve.

Domee Shi has written and directed this movie. He previously directed the Oscar-winning Pixar short Bao which played before The Incredibles 2 in cinemas. She has worked on several other Pixar films, including as a storyboard artist on Toy Story 4 and Inside Out.

Turning Red: Cast and Plot!

Turning Red follows awkward thirteen-year-old Mei Lee who is struggling with the changing interests and relationships that come with adolescence – as well as the fact she transforms into a giant red panda whenever she becomes too excited.

This isn’t helped by her well-meaning but overprotective mother Ming, who is never far from her daughter – an unfortunate reality for a teenager. It seems that Mei’s transformation will act as a metaphor for the changes of puberty and that the mother-daughter relationship will be central to the movie – and a perfect opportunity for Pixar to tug at the heartstrings once again.

Turning Red: Release date and Trailer!

The film is set in Toronto during the mid-2000s, hence the Backstreet Boys track used in the teaser. It can’t be worse for a teenager than being embarrassed by their mum at school.

Check out the trailer here:

Pixar released the trailer quite far ahead for this film – Seeing Red does not hit cinemas until Friday 11th March 2022. Turning Red will probably receive a normal theatrical release.
