What if Pixar made a movie of a 13-year-old diary?

Pixar's new family film "Red" lets a cute panda teach children about puberty and at the same time calm anxious parents. Fun and charming when embarrassments take turns, but the change of tone towards the end prevents the film from becoming panda-stick.
What if Pixar made a movie of a 13-year-old diary?
 
I actually think that's exactly what happened when director Domee Shi (who won an Oscar with the short film "Bao") is told about growing up as an Asian girl in Toronto. The cultural clashes between a strict, overprotective family and all the exciting things that the outside world has to offer are mixed with puberty pain and a great dose of humor.

Mix in a little fantasy and the cuteness meter hits the ceiling - because when Mei Lee turns 13, she magically transforms into a big, red, fluffy panda! The transformation comes in time and untimely so she may become sad, angry or upset. A curse or maybe a superpower? Together with the tight group of girls, Mei Lee finds a way to capitalize on the sweet factor of her involuntary alter ego to raise money for the gig with the hot boy band.
 
"Red" is a very charming story about growing up and taking the scary but exciting steps from childhood into adulthood. The time when the body changes, a look from a good-looking classmate makes one kneel weak, and one has no damn idea what's going on - playfully designed so that even the smallest children can be enchanted while we adult viewers laugh and are ashamed in recognition of all the embarrassment.

With their latest three films "The Soul", "Luca" and now "Red", Pixar has left the world of fish and toys. It is a nice trio of more mature, human stories, of course with a touch of supernatural magic, but also more personal projects for the filmmakers. It's fun to see new abilities take the lead and that the studio is investing in more original stories.
 
That the film takes place in 2002, the same year when the director himself was 13, is hardly a coincidence. We who remember that time can smile at details such as tamagotchi and portable CD players - you almost wish it was even more driven with the era. But "Red" is a timeless story that everyone who has once been a teenager can recognize themselves in and laugh at while hiding behind the pillow of shame. For families with children, it also leaves open for conversations about menstruation and puberty in a de-dramatized way.
 
And as in Disney's musical "Encanto", questions are raised here about the family, where unconditional love and great pressure sometimes go hand in hand. Do everything to fit in or dare to break free? How do you handle being disappointed in your own mother's eyes? I can imagine that Mirabel and Mei Lee could have been good pen pals in a parallel Disney universe, they would have a lot to talk about.
 
I see "Red" with a big smile on my face. It offers wonderful middle school humor with one foot in Asian culture and the other in a fantasy world, with playful and often anime-inspired animation.
 
That being said, the film is not spotless. It loses a bit of its charm and humor towards the end, to derail in some kind of bombastic Marvel finale we could have been without. That Pixar emotional storm is also missing - you know how their best films can grab your heart and turn the tear ducts? Although I suspect that "Red" will appeal to the female audience more, both mothers and daughters, who can relate to the characters on another level.
 
But the red panda is kind of the cutest thing seen in an animated film in a long time. Beware, parents - it is probably already mass-produced for toy stores.
 
And by the way, I love that Billie Eilish and his brother Finneas have teamed up with Swedish music genius Ludwig Göransson to create quirky, troll-friendly pop hits for the film's fictional boy band 4-Town. This year's most unpredictable music collaboration?
 
"Red" will be released on Disney + on March 11.

Pixar returns to the big screen 2022 with "Turning Red"

The "Bao" director's first feature film may be the first Pixar production to receive a traditional biorelease since the pandemic hit.


As is well known, the current pandemic has changed the film landscape in several ways, and many have chosen to let their films go directly to the streaming services instead of the cinemas. Pixar also did this, a decision that should be made for the safety of the audience, but which has nevertheless met with criticism from several quarters.
 
In the near future, however, we seem to be able to see the animation studio's films return to the big screen. Pixar's forthcoming feature film "Turning Red" is expected to have a "normal" cinema premiere, sources tell Insider.

When "The Soul" was released on Disney + in December last year, it became the first film in Pixar's history to have no cinema premiere. Even then, some dissatisfaction was aroused among the studio's employees, and even the film "Luca", which premiered earlier this week, went straight to streaming.
 
If "Turning Red" manages to get a premiere on the big screen, it will be the first Pixar film to get a biorelease since "Forward", which had time to hit theaters just before the pandemic hit hard.
 
The plot of "Turning Red" follows thirteen-year-old Mei Lee, who tries to juggle her passionate interests with the new challenges of teenage life, and who turns into a big, red panda every time she gets excited about something. The film is directed by Domee Shi, who is making his first feature film at Pixar after previously winning an Oscar for his directing of the short film "Bao".
