"Her protective, if not slightly overbearing mother, Ming, is never far from her daughter—an unfortunate reality for the teenager. And as if changes to her interests, relationships, and body weren’t enough, whenever she gets too excited, she 'poofs' into a giant red panda!"
The film landed on Disney+ instead of in cinemas
The film’s director, Domee Shi, opened up about the film landing on Disney+ instead of in cinemas, telling TechRadar: "The last thing we wanted was to have something out in the world, but nobody able to see it. We're glad Disney Plus came along because we don't know what we would've done without it. But it still kind of sucks that we can't release this in theaters."
