The Disney and Pixar film Red stars Mei Lee, a clumsy and self-confident 13-year-old, torn between remaining a disciplined daughter and the chaos of adolescence. Her mother, Ming, is protective, if not slightly bossy, and never strays from her daughter – an embarrassing reality for a teenager like her. And as if the changes in his interests, relationships and body weren’t enough, whenever he gets too excited (which basically means ALWAYS), he transforms into a giant red panda!
Rosalie Chiang voices lead Mei Lee, Sandra Oh (The Chair, Killing Eve) voices Ming Lee, Mei’s protective, slightly oppressive mother, who is never far from her daughter, an unpleasant reality for the teenager.
Rounding out the vocal cast: Ava Morse (Miriam), Maitreyi Ramakrishnan (Priya), Hyein Park (Abby), Orion Lee (Jin Lee), Wai Ching Ho (Mei’s grandmother), Tristan Allerick Chen (Tyler, classmate Mei’s), Addie Chandler (Devon, Mei’s secret crush).
Pixar’s first boy band
The members of the 4 * Town are dubbed by: Jordan Fisher, Josh Levi, Topher Ngo, Finneas O’Connell and Grayson Villanueva .
Billie Eilish and FINNEAS wrote three songs for the fictional band, including the track “Nobody Like U”. Producer Lindsey Collins explained:
“When we started thinking about Billie Eilish and FINNEAS, before they won numerous Grammys, we could see how they got the pulse of the situation. We were big fans. We met them and proposed this crazy idea of a boy band to them, asking if they would be interested in writing and producing the songs. And they were! “
The film is produced by Lindsey Collins and directed by Domee Shi ( Bao ) here making his debut as a feature film director. At the panel in Annecy 2021 Shi confessed that he needed a feature film to finish dealing with his relationship with his mother.
