Movie Review: TURNING RED


Director: Domee Shi
Starring: Rosalie Chiang, Sandra Oh, Ava Morse, Maitreyi Ramakrishnan, Hyein Park, Finneas

We’re getting double the Pixar joy this year with Lightyear coming this summer, but first is the highly energetic Turning Red. It’s is a coming-of-age story for Meilin Lee, voiced by Rosalie Chiang. She’s a spunky 13-year-old who narrates the film introducing us to her family and group of girlfriends Miriam, Priya, and Abby. For an overachieving 8th grader, there’s no time to mess around. That all changes after an incredibly emotional night, and she wakes up and finds herself turned into a giant red panda. It’s quite an adjustment for Meilin who needs to control her emotions if she doesn’t want the Panda to come out. This becomes all the more challenging thanks to her overprotective mother (Oh) and mean kids at school who are quick to poke fun. Instead of wallowing in these new changes with her body, she learns how to take advantage of her fluffy new alter ego. Streaming March 11 on Disney+
