Due to the increase in the number of cases of the Omicron COVID-19 variant in the United States, the first few months of 2022 could look a lot like 2021 when it comes to movies. Disney has announced that Pixar’s upcoming animated film, Turn red, will no longer be released in national cinemas. Instead of, Turn red will be the last exclusive film to debut on Disney +, in March.

However, there will be theatrical releases for countries that don’t have Disney +. It is also possible that there will be limited theatrical releases in the United States to ensure that Turn red will be eligible for the Oscars.

Rosalie Chiang is playing in Turn red as the voice of Mei Lee, a 13-year-old Toronto girl whom the studio describes as both “confident” and “dorky.” Although Mei is not embarrassed by her intelligence, she has a very big problem. Whenever Mei gets too horny, she transforms into a giant red panda. Maybe that’s why Mei’s mother Ming (Sandra Oh) was such a helicopter parent. Apparently, Mei’s family has a very strong mystical connection to pandas that dates back centuries. And that fact makes us wonder if Mei’s family members have their own panda forms.

Ava Morse, Maitreyi Ramakrishnan, and Hyein Park also star in the film as friends of Mei, Miriam, Priya, and Abby. Orion Lee will play Mei’s father, Jin Lee, with Wai Ching Ho as Mei’s grandmother, Tristan Allerick Chen as Tyler, and Addie Chandler as Devon. respectively
