What is Turning Red about?
The official trailer of Turning Red has been released on the official Pixar YouTube channel and it teases that the animated film will be full of humour, excitement and unexpected twist and turns.
The animation follows the life of the main character Meilin, known by her family and friends as Mei.
One day she wakes up one day and finds that she has become a giant red panda.
It turns out that Mei has a family tradition where when family members get to a certain age they have the power to transform into a giant red panda, and this can happen when extreme emotions come up.
With this new superpower, the trailer teases that Mei will have to learn how to control her emotions, in order to live a somewhat normal life in the real world.
This could prove particularly tricky, considering Mei is battling all the challenges that come with adolescence.
Turning Red is Pixar’s 25th studio feature film that features songs from Grammy-Award winning singer and songwriter Billie Eilish. The soundtrack of the trailer cleverly plays on Mei’s name by using the NSYNC song ‘’It’s gonna be me’’.
