Poster for Turning Red

An awkward girl suffers from a unique condition – when she gets too excited, she transforms into a giant red panda – in this Pixar animated feature from the director of Oscar-winning short Bao. More

Mei Lee is a confident and 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

Grammy winners Billie Eilish and FINNEAS teamed up to write songs for the film's fictional boy band 4*Town.
