Activate Red Panda Mode When Disney and Pixar’s Turning Red Bursts onto Digital April 26 and 4K Ultra HD™, Blu-ray™ and DVD May 3



LOS ANGELES, CA (April 11, 2022) – Disney and Pixar’s Turning Red debuts on all major digital platforms April 26 and on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray and DVD on May 3, just in time for Mother’s Day. Pixar fans can transport back to the early aughts and experience all the warm and fuzzy red panda Mei-hem with never-before-seen bonus material including seven deleted scenes, three featurettes and audio commentary with Director Domee Shi. Turning Red is also streaming on Disney+.



Film Synopsis

In Disney and Pixar’s Turning Red, confident, dorky 13-year-old Mei must balance being a dutiful daughter with the chaos of adolescence. Her slightly overbearing mom is never far from her daughter. And, as if changes to Mei’s interests, relationships and body aren’t enough, whenever she gets too excited, she “poofs” into a giant red panda!



Bonus Features*

  • Audio Commentary View the film with audio commentary by director Domee Shi, producer Lindsey Collins, and director of photography Mahyar Abousaeedi.
  • Featurettes
    • Life of a Shot Domee Shi and members of the crew describe the many-layered process and artistry involved in creating the hilarious Red Peony scene – from observing red pandas in a zoo to creating a storyboard to finalizing the animation and background lighting.
    • Build Your Own Boy Band Step backstage to learn how 4*TOWN came to animated life. From creating each band member’s persona to writing and producing the songs to fine-tuning the details of their stadium performance, the filmmakers reveal how they designed the ultimate boy band.
    • Ani-Mei-Tion Because Mei’s heightened emotionality is central to the story, it was important that her look and movement reflect that energy. Learn how Domee Shi led the animation team to incorporate hints of expressive anime to create Mei’s lovable, dynamic character.
  • Deleted Scenes
    • Deleted Scenes Introduction Director Domee Shi introduces scenes not included in the final version of Turning Red.

    • Taming The Panda Under her mother's guidance, Mei learns techniques to control her ability to magically turn into a red panda...to varying degrees of success.
    • The Debate Mei runs for class president against frenemy Tyler, and the speeches get a little out of hand.

My hill on which to die:

If you watch the credits on Turning Red, it's abundantly clear that a 3D version of the film was prepped, that will now never see the light of day, since (a) Disney diverted this to streaming; and (b) Disney has no interest in releasing a 3D BD. Loved the movie, though.

Disney just sent out an email to their mailing list detailing various retailer exclusives.

Best Buy will have the steelbook. Target will have exclusive limited edition decals along with what looks like a fancy variant slipcover. Wal-Mart will have an exclusive enamel pin of Meilin in her panda form. All of these appear to come with the 4K+Blu-ray edition only, not the Blu-ray+DVD version.

Disney Movie Club will have "exclusive packaging" with the Blu-ray+DVD+digital version and a lithograph offer. It isn't clear if this is actually different artwork in the case or if it will be a variant slipcover.

Also, the regular Blu-ray+DVD+digital combo pack appears to come in a red keepcase. This is a nice touch. I've heard they also did that last year for Black Widow, but my local store only had standard blue case copies of that one. For Turning Red, 'm not in the market for a red case because I will be getting the steelbook.

Yeah. Disney will sell 4K copies with garbage like stickers, pins and steel book covers, but the one thing that would make buy a physical copy of this film is the one thing that they won't release.

The thing is that the discs for the retailer exclusives are all the same. Even with packaging variants, they're only pressing one edition of the disc per format. It's easy for them to package it with physical extras, and I'm pretty sure that the major chains have deals with them for such exclusives. Releasing a 3D edition would require additional effort to author and replicate a different disc, which they obviously don't think will sell enough copies to justify its existence.

I maintain that a big reason why 3D "failed" was that 3D content even at its peak was usually expensive and difficult to get ahold of. I guarantee if Disney Plus had ALL their 3D content available through apps built-in to TVs, with no extra charges or compatibility issues, a lot more people would get into it.

As it is I'm willing to pay a premium price for a 3D disc, but won't pay even $1 for a 2D copy.
