What We Know So Far

With a hilarious concept and several excellent jokes in the trailer, Turning Red will be a lot of fun. With a strong team behind it, we’re sure it’ll be another heartwarming Pixar classic. Director Domee Shi previously made the animated short Bao, and is the first woman of color to direct a feature film for Disney Pixar. Similarly, to Bao, Shi is keeping her focus on Asian-Canadian culture with Turning Red. Shi was inspired by her own childhood in Toronto when writing the film, and has set it in the same neighborhoods she grew up in.

Sandra Oh, who proved herself to be a talented voice actress in Amazon’s Invincible, and will be performing as Mei’s mother, Ming. While the rest of the voice cast is still unconfirmed, the film’s characters are culturally diverse and will undoubtedly be voiced by some of the top talents in the industry. Shi has also taken inspiration from East Asian animation in the aesthetics of the film. Look out for red panda Mei’s anime-style tears in the trailer! Shi stated her film will be equally entertaining and emotional, and Turning Red looks like it’s sure to become a future classic.
