Pixar has dropped the first trailer for its next feature, Turning Red. Elevator pitch: The Incredible Hulk, but red, fluffy, and cute.
The film tells the story of Mei Lee, a 13-year-old girl who turns into a giant red panda when her emotions run high. The bulk of the trailer is given over to a single scene in a classroom, in which Mei Lee metamorphoses amid a cloud of pink smoke after spying her mom outside. Watch it below:
The trailer’s offbeat, borderline-grotesque humor will be familiar to viewers of Bao, Pixar’s Oscar-winning 2018 short. Its director Domee Shi makes her feature directorial debut with Turning Red — she’ll be the first woman to get a sole directing credit on a Pixar feature.
