Some questions are just near impossible to answer…
There are plenty of examples when it comes to movies and many would find it a daunting task to identify their favourite Disney Pixar movie.
With the likes of Toy Story, Finding Nemo, Inside Out, and plenty more, the animation studio has delivered so many iconic family classics over the years. However, there’s always room for more of those.
The latest from the studio has finally arrived on screens at home, but will Turning Red be in theaters too?
Will Turning Red be in theaters?
Turning Red was released globally on Disney+ on Friday, March 11th 2022 and only a few select theaters are offering screenings.
For example, it has a very limited run for a week from March 11th at the El Capitan Theatre in Los Angeles. Certain Showcase branches – Nottingham, Coventry etc. – have morning showings available for the film in the UK too.
It’s worth checking with your local multiplex to see if they are one of the cinemas offering showtimes.
As for territories that don’t have Disney+ available, there are theater showings available; this includes the likes of the United Arab Emirates and the Philippines.
Taking this into consideration, Disney+ is the most accessible and ultimately the easiest way to watch the movie.

Domee Shi on her directorial Disney debut
While in conversation with Sarah Scoop, director Domee Shi opened up about the importance of the film:
“Turning Red is just inspired by this universal struggle of growing up and trying to figure out how to honor your parents but also stay true to yourself. For Mei Lee in the movie, the red panda is that magical spark that sets off this internal conflict within herself.”
She continued: “’cause up until that point, Mei thinks she has it all figured out like we all did before we woke up one day and realized all of a sudden, we’re covered in body hair, we smell funky, and our emotions are all over the place, and we’re hungry like all the time.”
With the film’s destined to be iconic red panda serving as a metaphor for these changes, Turning Red is sure to be championed as an essential outing in Disney Pixar’s oeuvre for years to come.
Turning Red is now streaming on Disney+.
