Disney and Pixar Drop Trailer for Turning Red
So here’s what you need to know about the new trailer Disney and Pixar just dropped for Turning Red. The upcoming film follows 13-year-old Mei Lee (voiced by Rosalie Chian) who turns into a giant red panda anytime her emotions become more than she can handle. Her mom is voiced by none other than Sandra Oh. The movie is helmed by writer and director Domee Shi who also directed the animated short Bao. Not only does this project include all the above but it also features the Backstreet Boys for the official trailer music. This is a recipe for the perfect movie. Turning Red is set to hit theaters March 22, 2022.
