Disney Pixar’s animated coming of age comedy directed by Domee Shi. Turning Red (2022) centers on thirteen-year-old Mei Lee (Rosalie Chiang), who is torn between staying her mother’s, Ming (Sandra Oh), dutiful daughter and the chaos of adolescence. Also, whenever she gets too excited, “poofs” into a giant red panda, which for a teenager is practically always.
We’ll add the best quotes once the movie is released and we’ve had a chance to watch it, but for now, here’s a small selection.
