Turning Red is the next Pixar movie to hit our screens, and if the trailers are anything to go by, it’ll be both a hilarious watch for the whole family, as well as a tearjerker.
Mei Lee is a young teenager torn between a relationship with her mother who wants her to be obedient and devoted, and a more chaotic relationship with her friends. On top of all that, she soon learns that when she gets too excited or stressed, she transforms into a giant red panda.
Here’s how to watch Turning Red from home in the UK and US. We also have articles on the release of Spider-Man: No Way Home and The Batman on VOD and DVD.
When is Turning Red coming out?
There’s not long to wait now, as Turning Red will release on Friday March 11, 2022 in the UK and US. You can watch the official trailer below:
Will Turning Red be available on Disney+?
Yes – like Luca and Soul, Turning Red will be available on Disney+. It won’t be on Premier Access like Black Widow and Raya and the Last Dragon, so subscribers can watch it on the release date at no extra cost.
All you have to do is tune in to Disney+ on March 11 and Turning Red will be available to stream.
If you haven’t already, you can sign up on the Disney+ website. Accounts cost £7.99/$7.99 per month or £79.90/$79.99 per year.
If you’re also on the hunt for a new phone (and you live in the UK), you can currently buy a handset from the Samsung Galaxy S22 range and get six months of Disney+ for free.
Will Turning Red be released in theaters?
Unfortunately no. Turning Red will be exclusive to Disney+, so you can’t watch it in theaters. You can read my speculation on whether Disney cares about Pixar.
When will Turning Red arrive on VOD and/or DVD?
If you don’t have Disney+ and aren’t planning on signing up, then fear not. Turning Red will eventually be released both digitally and on DVD/Blu-ray – but when will that happen?
Pixar’s latest film, Luca, was released on Disney+ on June 18, 2021. It was later released both digitally and on DVD/Blu-ray on August 3, 2022. Walt Disney’s animated film Encanto also had a similar period between outings.
Turning Red comes out on March 11, so assuming there’s a similar month and a half gap, Turning Red should hit VOD and DVD around the end of May 2022 or early June 2022.
