Pixar’s Turning Red: Sandra Oh praises Asian audiences for understanding the film so well

After Killing Eve Season 5 premiered on Tuesday, Sandra Oh appeared at the Screen Actors Guild Awards where she was nominated for “The Chair.” The beautiful actress walked the red carpet Tuesday in Hollywood for the debut of Disney-Pixar‘s “Turning Red.”

Pointing to the glittering ‘Turning Red’ canvas atop the El Capitan Theatre, Sandra Oh told Variety “Look at this, it’s so amazing, I can’t help but look at it and think it’s real .”

The Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures story Turning Red revolves around a 13-year-old girl named Mei Mei, who turns into a giant red panda whenever she gets stressed. Sandra Oh voices Ming, the mother of 13-year-old Meilin Lee (Chiang), in the film. Domee Shi is the director of the film. Right after the release of the first trailer in July 2021, writer and director Domee Shi’s work received worldwide acclaim. Turning Red marks the feature debut of Domee Shi, who won the 2018 Animated Short Film Oscar for Bao.

She also explained: “What appealed to me was that there’s an entire movie that’s focused on the inner life of a 13-year-old girl and that perspective — made from that perspective, written from that perspective — [that] was something I really wanted to be a part of.”

She appreciated the Asian audience and the journalist who described the work of the director in great detail. If you watch the trailer, you will find that Domee Shi describes what the characters need in their daily lives.

“I really appreciate that the Asian public and the journalists who spoke about [the movie], there is so much understanding. if you come from an immigrant or Asian background — but it’s not limited to that — or if you have a parent who loves you or who has been, as I like to say, “hyper-vigilant “—there’s a place for that.” Ah said.
