Disney+ released Turning Red, Pixar’s 25th feature film, on Friday. This is director Domee Shi’s first full-length movie, though she has worked for Pixar since 2011, and is best-known for directing the 2018 Pixar short Bao, which won an Academy Award for Best Animated Short Film.
Turning Red is a coming-of-age tale, and tackles the universal themes of puberty and bodily changes. Although the film is aimed towards a young audience and produced by Disney (who we all know is adamant on keeping things sanitized), there is a surprising number of suggestive jokes. In an interview with Murphy’s Multiverse, Shi recounted her reaction to Disney’s lack of pushback.
