Turning Red Plot

Turning Red Release Date, Cast, Trailer and Plot and Everything We Know So Far Turning Red follows awkward 13-year-old Mei Lee as she struggles with adolescent interests and relationships, as well as the fact that she changes into a gigantic red panda whenever she gets too excited.This isn’t helped by her well-meaning but overprotective mother Ming, who is never far from her daughter. The mother-daughter relationship is a central theme in the film, and Mei’s transformation appears to be a symbol of puberty changes. This is the ideal opportunity for Pixar to play with the audience’s emotions once more. The film is set in Toronto in the 2000s, which explains the use of a Backstreet Boys song in the first teaser. Pixar, who is known for his attention to detail, has included several Canadian easter eggs in the trailer, including the CN Tower in the background and the name of the school, which is a reference to Canadian Prime Minister Lester B Pearson.
