Turning Red Plot
Meilin “Mei” Lee is who loves math, a thirteen-year-old young girl who has a lot of ambitions and is extremely fearless of being herself. With her flute skills and academic hustle, Mei is an educated and cool teenager.
This completely rad middle schooler and her three dearest friends share secret handshakes, environmental protests, and a crush for the most handsome boy band of all time, 4*Town. Most significantly the girls love each other through thick and thin, even though when things get complicated, they always stand by each other.
Since she is soon to figure it out, there’s a lot more to “perfect little Mei-Mei”. One crucial night Mei experiences an unusual transformation, she wakes up mysteriously transformed into a giant red panda. Whilst Mei is surprised by her new inception, her parents somehow had feelings of this to take place.
Mei figures out that her family has a mysterious connection with red pandas. Transforming into one run in their family, and to control the transformation, she has to control her emotions. Most teenagers have to cope with a few changes that come during that period in their bodies, but Mei is a whole different story.
Whilst she tries to maintain her cool, Mei figures out that she is pretty okay with her new transformation and rather than making attempts to retain her emotion, she welcomes the changes in the run, getting to know regarding her feelings and the power of feeling them during the journey.
The film’s deeper message tries to teach that you are never too much for the correct people, and rather than holding down your emotions you can switch them into superpowers and do something amazing.
According to Mei’s school ID and the Y2K sticker on her flute case Turning Red is set in Toronto, Canada, between the years 2002 and 2003.
Together with the 2000s fashion, Tamagotchis, and the boy band craze, expectations are that the film will come up with certain epic throwback slang and a soundtrack of early 2000s tunes. The sneak peeks that have been kicked off so far feature songs from real-life boy bands *NSYNC and the Backstreet Boys.
