Pixar’s blockbusters keep on coming, with Soul-winning the Best Animated Feature Oscar and Luca becoming one of the most popular Disney+ movies so far. For Pixar enthusiasts, Turning Red is one of the films to look forward to.
However, what is the plot of this new film all about? Who will play the lead role? And when can we expect it to be out? This is what we know about the next Pixar picture so far, and how soon you may be able to watch it.
Turning Red Release Date
Unfortunately, this new Pixar picture won’t be out for a long time. Just one year from today, Disney has announced that Turning Red will be released on March 11, 2022. But one should always keep in mind the likelihood of COVID delays and pushbacks when considering release dates.
The odds of that release date being a reality are increasing since things have been going well recently.
When a little girl becomes excited, she transforms into a giant red panda, uncontrollably.
Forgive me for saying so, but this reminds me a lot of the Hulk, everyone’s favorite green superhero. When a little girl gets overly enthusiastic, she transforms into a gigantic red panda – hence the title of the film, Turning Red.
Considering how out of control her conduct has become, it’s no surprise that we’ll witness her struggle to find a solution throughout the film. Regardless, I’m sure we’ll all tune in to see the red panda. Is this correct?
With Sandra Oh And Rosalie Chiang, Turning Red Is Coming To The Big Screen.
Two cast members have been confirmed to appear in Turning Red, despite the fact that nothing is known about the film’s impending cast. Rosalie Chiang, a newbie to Hollywood, stars as Mei Lee, the 13-year-old girl who transforms into a red panda.
A veteran actress known for appearances in Grey’s Anatomy and Killing Eve plays her overprotective mother in the film. One of her most recent roles was as Debbie Grayson in the Amazon Prime Original series, Invincible, for which she provided the voice of the character.
With more announcements of stars for this upcoming picture, we can rest easy knowing that at least two have been confirmed at this time.
The Director of a Pixar Short Film Is Returning to Direct Turning Red.
Domee Shi, the director of Turning Red, is a newcomer to feature films at Pixar but has worked with Pixar in the past.
Prior to The Incredibles 2, Bao, a Pixar short film by Domee Shi, received an Academy Award for Best Animated Short Film. Nonetheless, this is the first time Domee Shi has entered the field of full-length feature films, where she will direct her own movie.
In an interview with IndieWire in 2018, Domee Shi said that her short film, Bao, was a bit of a leap of faith in telling her tale.
If you haven’t seen the movie Bao yet, you may do so right now on Disney+. If Domee Shi was that devoted to her short film, imagine how much more devoted Pixar will be to this newest member of their team. I, for one, can’t wait.
Turning Red Shot In Canada
Many of Pixar’s films have taken place in diverse countries, from Mexico to the imaginary country of Monsters, Inc. Finding Nemo allowed us to explore the ocean and witness the awe-inspiring marine species that live near Australia. Pixar, on the other hand, will be venturing into new territory with Turning Red – Canada.
Apparently, CTV News reports that Turning Red will be the first Pixar picture to be shot in Toronto, Canada, particularly. Canadians who live in Toronto may recognize the streetcar lines, the CN Tower, and the graffiti-covered alleys in the teaser.
It’s hardly unexpected that Domee Shi’s debut feature film with Pixar is nearly a love letter to Canada, given that she herself is Canadian. Even though Sandra Oh was born in Canada, CTV reports that she was born in Ottawa, so the voice cast and surroundings areas Canadian as possible.
Unlike the commercial for Soul and Luca, the film Turning Red is expected to be released in theatres.
In spite of the recent success of Pixar on Disney+, there’s no doubting that the best way to see a Pixar picture in a cinema is with your family or friends and even just by yourself. It was unfortunate that both Soul and Luca had to be published on Disney+ because of the continuing COVID-19 outbreak.
Pixar, on the other hand, seems to be on track to release its feature in cinemas in 2022, given the recent trend of films returning to theatres and limitations being eased.
According to Insider, Pixar hopes to bring Turning Red to cinemas on a regular basis, which would be the studio’s first return to the box office since 2020’s Onward. The safety of the general public and theatergoers is a paramount priority.
If all goes according to plan, we may be able to watch this new picture in theatres sooner than expected. And if that’s the case, I can’t wait to see Turning Red with my fellow Pixar enthusiasts at the cinema.
