Turning Red is an upcoming American 3D computer-animated coming-of-age film produced by Pixar set to be released on March 11, 2022. The film will be directed by Domee Shi and written by Shi and Julia Cho, and will be Pixar's 25th feature film.

Synopsis

Set in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, 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!

Overview

Turning Red is written and directed by Academy Award-winner Domee Shi (Pixar short Bao), produced by Lindsey Collins and coming to theaters in March 11, 2022.[2]

Trivia

  • This will be the first Pixar film to have a worldwide release (including the United Kingdom, Ireland, Australia, and New Zealand).
  • This will be the second Pixar film to be released in March, after Onward.
  • This will be the second Pixar film of the 2020s to be produced in a 1:85:1 aspect ratio, after Luca, and the third Disney animated film of the 2020s to be produced in a 1:85:1 aspect ratio, after Luca and Encanto.
  • This is Domee Shi's first feature-length Pixar film. She previously directed the short, Bao.
  • The song heard in the teaser is 'Larger Than Life' by Backstreet Boys.
  • The second Pixar film to be directed by a woman, after Brave.
  • This is the first Pixar film to be solely directed by a woman of color.
  • According to Mei Lee's student tag, the film takes place in 2002 or 2003.
  • This film is set in Toronto, Canada, as some of the articles of clothing Mei wears features the maple leaf of the Canadian flag and a shot of the CN Tower. According to Domee Shi, she chose this city as the backdrop of her film because it was her hometown.[3]
  • This will be the third Pixar film with a protagonist who wears glasses after Carl Fredricksen from Up and Joe Gardner from Soul but the first of such movies with a female glass-wearer in the lead role.
  • This will also be the fifth Pixar film to have a female protagonist after Brave, Inside Out, Finding Dory, and Incredibles 2.
  • This is the third Pixar film to have a verb in the title, after Finding Nemo and Finding Dory.
  • This is the fourth Pixar film to have a music score composed by a non-recurring composer after Brave (which had its music score composed by Patrick Doyle), Soul (which had its music score composed by Trent Reznor, Atticus Ross, and Jon Batiste), and Luca (which had its music score composed by Dan Romer).

  • This will be the sixth Pixar film not to take place in the United States, following Luca, Finding Nemo, Ratatouille, Brave, and Coco.
  • In Luca, there is an Italian record cover in Giulia's bedroom that says "4 (Star) Villaggi," a reference to the boy band 4 (Star) TOWN in the film.

  • This will be Sandra Oh's fourth Disney film, after The Princess Diaries, Mulan II, and Raya and the Last Dragon.
  • This will be the eighth Pixar film to have a child as the main character after Dot from A Bug's Life, Nemo from Finding Nemo, Dash Parr from The Incredibles, Russell from Up, Riley Anderson from Inside Out, Miguel Rivera from Coco, and Luca Paguro from Luca.
