The film’s main character, Meilin “Mei” Lee, gets a nasty surprise when she suddenly starts transforming into a giant red panda whenever she experiences strong emotions. Come find out, it’s a rite of passage for the women in his family, and it’s the perfect metaphor for the confusing roller coaster that is puberty.

Pulled straight from memories of her own childhood (with a healthy dose of early 2000s nostalgia to boot), Shi described the film as being “for this 13-year-old Domee who struggled with her body and emotions and struggled with his mom every day and wanting to understand what was going on at that time, but in a fun, unique and magical way. It doesn’t shy away from embarrassing body changes and the general embarrassment of being a tween, but presents information in a more comfortable and accessible way for kids of all age.
