Disney+ released a trailer and poster this morning celebrating Embrace the Panda: Making Turning Red, a feature documentary about the all-woman team at the helm of Pixar’s original feature, Turning Red.
With behind-the-scenes access to director Domee Shi and her core leadership crew, this documentary shines a light on the powerful professional and personal journeys that brought Pixar’s latest comical, heartfelt feature to the screen. Embrace the Panda: Making Turning Red is now streaming on Disney+.
Viewers will also hear from producer Lindsey Collins, visual effects supervisor Danielle Feinberg and production designer Rona Liu as they explore the different ways the team found to push the look of the CGI animation with anime influences, and call upon their own experiences to push the relatable teenage weirdness of Mei and her friends. The documentary also gives a glimpse at recording sessions with stars like Rosalie Chiang (Mei) and Sandra Oh (Ming).
