Red alert, the brand new animated feature film from Pixar studios, tells the adventures of Meilin Lee, a young 13-year-old girl, full of confidence, but torn between her image as a model little girl in the eyes of her hyper-protective mother and chaos of adolescence. And as if all the changes taking place inside her weren’t enough, whenever she’s overwhelmed by her emotions – which, for a teenager, happens almost all the time – she transforms into a giant red panda!

Our opinion :

Humor, emotion, beautiful life lessons, a colorful and explosive universe: we find all the Pixar know-how in this well-paced new feature film. Through Mei Mei, we relive our adolescence : we remember the friends and girlfriends who were at the center of our lives, the first loves, the desire to be seen as grown-ups…

On the animation side, we discover a very colored and very round, an original style but which allows this film to stand out from its predecessors.

The story of Mei Mei reminds us of those difficult times in adolescence, where the body changes, where desires and expectations evolve, without sometimes being able to express or identify these changes. Whatever our age, whether we are a girl or a boy, we quickly identify with this very funny and energetic, eager to grow up and be recognized as an adult. We especially love the relationship that Mei Mei has with her friends and family, a relationship full oflovepunctuated by a few arguments that fail to erase the affection and support they have for each other.

A great film to watch with the family!
