Academy Award® nominated for Best Animated Feature Film

Mei Lee is a confident, dorky 13-year-old who’s torn between her role as a dutiful daughter and the chaos of adolescence. Her protective, if not slightly overbearing mother, Ming, is never far from her — 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!

“TURNING RED original, funny and tender, an affectionate reminder that adolescence is a time of life not easily tamed, and sometimes the animal inside us demands release.” —David Rooney, Hollywood Reporter

“A radical, brazenly hormonal PG movie that instantly fills a huge void in the lives of awkward, novel female teens…. TURNING RED flickers with a bright feminine spirit, one that feels new, crimson-deep, and unapologetically rebellious.” —Tomris Laffly,

“A deeply personal film that speaks to universal themes…. Shi gleefully celebrates early adolescence, a time of life often portrayed as awkward and cringey, and she revels in extensive cultural specificities that enrich the story. With a bright visual style and specific, evocative storytelling, TURNING RED is an incredibly special addition to the Pixar canon, and one of its best films.” —Petrana Radulovic, Polygon
