‘Turning Red’ follows Mei Lee (voiced by Rosalie Chiang), a confident, dorky 13-year-old who turns into a giant red panda when she gets overly excited, which is incredibly easy to do as an excitable youngster. The voice cast includes Sandra Oh, Maitreyi Ramakrishnan, Morse, Hyein Park, Orion Lee, Wang Ching Ho, Tristan Allerick Chen and Addie Chandler. Billish Eilish and Finneas O’Connell wrote original songs for the film, which will be performed by the fictional band 4*Town. O’Connell, Jordan Fisher, Josh Levi, Topher Ngo and Grayson Villenueva play the band members.

Domee Shi, who created the adorable Pixar short ‘Bao’, directs the film, which is produced by Lindsey Collins. ‘Turning Red’ marks Shi’s directorial debut and also the first Pixar movie to be solo directed by a woman, as per Variety.
