‘Growing up is a beast.’ That’s very true and Turning Red takes growing pains to a new level. Disney/Pixar shared with us the Turning Red trailer and it’s pretty exciting.
This one of the worst things that could happen to you at school. You can’t spell smother without mother. I suffered second-hand embarrassment watching this trailer. I’m glad my mom didn’t embarrass me in front of my peers. In fact, I don’t remember anything embarrassing she did in front of people. My mom waited till no one was looking to be silly. Thanks, mom! She was pretty cool so, gladly, I can’t relate. Meilin ‘Mei’ Lee is a student at Lester B Pearson Middle School. Growing up is tough and trying to keep your cool as a teenager is no easy task. If Mei gets too excited, she turns into a giant red panda. While red pandas are cute, a teenager doesn’t want to turn into a giant one they lose control.
Disney’s Synopsis for Turning Red:
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! Turning Red is writen and directed by Academy Award-winner Domee Shi (Pixar short Bao), produced by Lindsey Collins and coming to theaters in Spring, 2022.
Rosalie Chiang stars as Mei Lee. Turning Red will be released on March 11, 2022.
