In addition to all the properties the streaming service offers its subscribers, it has had an impressive track record for its original movies. The original films come from all across the board, including musicals, Pixar films, and those based on true stories. The Mouse House shows no signs of slowing down entering its fifth year.
Turning Red was yet another Pixar project that went straight to Disney+. The first Pixar movie to be solely directed by a woman, the film follows 13-year-old Mei. She discovers that due to a longstanding family curse, she turns into a giant red panda anytime she gets excited – not great for somebody entering puberty.
The film was universally acclaimed, with a 95% on Rotten Tomatoes. The coming-of-age story touches on many of the problems 13-year-old girls face through the lens of a Chinese-Canadian girl doing her best not to turn into a giant red panda.
