Pixar divulges the teaser trailer and banner for their next film, Turning Red, offering a tremendous bend on the animated transitioning comedy formula. The movie hails from Pixar chief Domee Shi, Oscar victor of the 2018 short film Bao that screened ahead of The Incredibles 2. Shi originally teased development on the film soon after Bao’s release, with the studio appropriately announcing its creation during last year’s Disney Investor Day.
A little more than a half year after first announcing the title, Pixar has disclosed the main teaser trailer and banner for Turning Red. Set to the tune of Backstreet Boys’ “Larger Than Life,” the video offers a brief look at the truly relatable angst of Mei Lee, her overprotective mother Ming and the fantastical nature of her transformation. Look at the main teaser trailer underneath:
While Pixar has always been known for pulling on the emotional heartstrings of audiences, the studio has as of late started investigating the transitioning type with endeavors like Inside Out, Onward and Luca, however Turning Red is certainly appearing to be their most captivating exertion yet. In contrast to the new undertaking, which felt suggestive of Luca Guadagnino’s Call Me By Your Name, Shi’s film is resembling a decent break of formula and an entirely original work. Being a teenager is no easy feat, however transforming in to a large red panda anytime feelings run too high like Marvel’s Hulk would be a significantly greater challenge for all having to go through it.
Knowing how the magical universes of Pixar’s movies work, it’s improbable Turning Red will offer any sort of explanation as to exactly how Mei Lee transforms. However, taking a gander at Shi’s past work with the Oscar-winning Bao, this piece will not be necessary as she’s displayed strength in conveying a lot of emotional narrating without plunging a lot into the fantastical realism at its center. Obviously, the main trailer for the film has displayed a greater amount of Pixar’s dazzling animation, sure to assemble anticipation for its release next March.
