Earlier in September, we blogged about a new Pixar Asian-led animated film ‘Turning Red’ was coming out in March 2022. The official first trailer has been released recently:
“Disney and Pixar’s “Turning Red” introduces Mei Lee (voice of Rosalie Chiang), a confident, dorky 13-year-old torn between staying her mother’s dutiful daughter and the chaos of adolescence. Her protective, if not slightly overbearing mother, Ming (voice of Sandra Oh), is never far from her daughter—an unfortunate reality for the teenager. And as if changes to her interests, relationships and body weren’t enough, whenever she gets too excited (which is practically ALWAYS), she “poofs” into a giant red panda! Directed by Academy Award® winner Domee Shi (Pixar short “Bao”) and produced by Lindsey Collins “Turning Red releases on March 11, 2022.”
There was a teaser trailer released earlier, but the above is the first official one. This trailer provides a lot more context and information as to what the film is about. I’m excited to see the film, especially to see how my nieces might react to the film.
