Earlier this year, Disney and Pixar announced that its newest feature, Turning Red, would skip theaters and premiere exclusively on Disney+ on March 11. The team’s 25th movie is yet another project to be released exclusively on Disney’s streaming platform due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
“Given the delayed box office recovery, particularly for family films, flexibility remains at the core of our distribution decisions as we prioritize delivering the unparalleled content of The Walt Disney Company to audiences around the world,” said Kareem Daniel, chairman of Disney Media and Entertainment Distribution.

What is Turning Red about?
Directed by Academy Award-winner Domee Shi, Turning Red follows uber-confident 13-year-old nerd Mei Lee (voiced by Rosalie Chiang) stuck between pleasing her overbearing mom (Emmy-nominee Sandra Oh) and having fun with her friends.

After her mother explains her ancestors’ connection to the adorable animals, Mei has to figure out how to control this quirk with the help of friends.
