For all Turning Red fans out there, we have some exciting news! Turning Red posits an interesting question: what if anxiety took a very cuddly, but still shocking, form? Yes, we’ve seen Bruce Banner turn into the big, green Hulk, but it’s time to meet Mei Lee, a 13-year-old who turns red when she gets excited. And, no, we’re not talking about blushing.
The Release Date of Turning Red:
Turning Red is expected to hit theaters on March 11th, 2022. And it sounds like the film may only hit theaters when it comes out.
The Cast of Turning Red:
- Rosalie Chiang as Mei Lee
- Sandra Oh as Ming Lee
- TBA as Mr. Kieslowski
The trailer of Turning Red:
Is there anything worse for a teenager than being embarrassed by their mum at school? Well, clearly turning into a giant red panda straight afterward is as shown in this adorable teaser trailer that neatly showcases the film’s premise.
The plot of Turning Red:
Seeing 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.
Mei teams up with a group of friends to stand up for herself when she gets bullied at school for becoming “weird” after transforming into a panda bear.
It is not clear whether Mei and the other pandas that transform with her into panda bears during these moments of heightened emotion will have to learn a secret skill or master ability in order to manage their transformations.
In Turning Red it becomes unclear if surviving adolescence means growing up too soon for some but without facing adulthood at all for others.
