Recently, Disney Pixar’s newest movie “Turning Red” has taken the world by storm.
“Turning Red” introduced audiences to Meilin “Mei” Lee, a 13-year-old Chinese-Canadian student. One day, she realizes that whenever she becomes very excited or stressed, she will transform into a massive red panda. This turns out to be a curse passed down from her forefathers, but the curse can be prevented by a particular ritual. However, at the end of the movie, Mei knows herself for who she is and what she desires and she finally keeps her red panda.
From the release day, Mei Lee has quickly become a loved heroine because of her endearingly funny and awkwardness.
