Furry things are afoot in new ‘Turning Red’ trailer & poster

Growing up can be a pain in the brand new trailer and poster for Disney and Pixar’s Turning Red.

The studio has also revealed that multiple GRAMMY® Winners Billie Eilish and FINNEAS have teamed up to write songs for fictional band, 4*Town.

“We needed our character Mei to be obsessed with something that her mom would not approve of,” said Shi. “Boy bands were the first step into the world of boys for a lot of girls that age. The guys were all super pretty, polished, soft and loving, and they had of way of bringing girls and their besties together. Plus, I thought it’d be really cool to create an animated boy band.”

Disney and Pixar’s “Turning Red” introduces Mei Lee (voice of Rosalie Chiang), a confident, dorky 13-year-old torn between staying her mother’s dutiful daughter and the chaos of adolescence. Her protective, if not slightly overbearing mother, Ming (voice of Sandra Oh), is never far from her daughter—an unfortunate reality for the teenager. And as if changes to her interests, relationships and body weren’t enough, whenever she gets too excited (which is practically ALWAYS), she “poofs” into a giant red panda! 

Directed by Academy Award® winner Domee Shi (Pixar short “Bao”) and produced by Lindsey Collins Turning Red releases on March 11, 2022.
