Turning Red Podcast

The Goggler Podcast #144: Turning Red

Dept. of Jibbers, Jabbers, and Yackety-Yaks

Turning Red is bold and bright and beautiful. It is a love letter to all of the cultures and influences that played a part in our upbringing. It is an unashamed celebration of girlhood. But where does it rank in Pixar’s oeuvre? On today’s episode of The Goggler Podcast, Bahir and Uma watch and review Pixar’s Turning Red.

Disney and Pixar’s Turning Red introduces Mei Lee, a confident, dorky 13-year-old torn between staying her mother’s dutiful daughter and the chaos of adolescence. Her protective, if not slightly overbearing mother, Ming, is never far from her daughter – an unfortunate reality for the teenager. And as if changes to her interests, relationships, and body weren’t enough, whenever she gets too excited (which is practically ALWAYS), she “poofs” into a giant red panda!

Directed by Academy Award winner Domee Shi (Pixar short Bao) and produced by Lindsey Collins, Turning Red, features Rosalie Chiang as Mei, Sandra Oh as Ming, James Hong, Maitreyi Ramakrishnan, Ava Morse, Anne-Marie, Hyein Park, and Ho-Wai Ching.
