Have you seen Pixar’s new movie, Turning Red? I did! Listen to my thoughts on the film in my latest podcast! (Extended version of the podcast posted on 3/13 at 6:30pm EST).
In this episode, I discuss the basics of the film (setting, characters), the mechanics of the red panda and what the main message of the film is, the representation of Asian/Chinese-Canadians, and my question about the commodification of the red panda temple and Mei’s red panda.
