Turning Red is set in Toronto, Canada during the early 2000s. The movie follows dorky and confident thirteen-year-old Mei Lee as she navigates the twists and turns of adolescence. Mei Lee is torn between the chaos of growing up and staying her mother’s dutiful daughter. Mei Lee’s mother, Ming Lee, is seen as a source of her anxiety during the trailer. As if all of that wasn’t hard enough, every time Mei Lee gets overexcited she has a Hulk-like transformation into a giant red panda.

This isn’t the first time Pixar has tackled the emotional side of growing up. Inside Out also explores the mental health of a young girl named Riley, The film was considered Pixar’s return to form and won fifteen Best Picture, twenty-one Best Original Screenplay, and forty Best Animated Feature nominations from over 50 different organizations and associations.
