The film is set in the 2000s and its young protagonist and his friends are obsessed with a Backstreet Boys-style boy band called 4 * Town.
In the middle of this year we discussed Turning Red , Pixar’s first film directed entirely by a woman. One detail that has been revealed about this Disney production is the fact that it is set in the 2000s and that its young protagonist and his friends are obsessed with a Backstreet Boys-style boy band called 4 * Town .
Well, according to Stereogum , the songs in the band’s repertoire were written by Billie Eilish and her brother Finneas , so there are huge expectations regarding the quality of the soundtrack for this animated feature film. Likewise, in the new trailer for the delivery, the theme that sounds the most in the background is “It’s Gonna Be Me”, a single by Nsync that was part of their album No Strings Attached (2000).
The synopsis of this long-awaited film reads: “Mei Lee is a thirteen-year-old girl, trusting and silly, torn between continuing to be an obedient daughter and the chaos of adolescence. And in case of changes in her relationships, in her interests and in his body weren’t enough, every time he gets too excited – which for a teenager is practically ALWAYS – he turns into a giant red panda . ”
It is then a story quite similar to that narrated in Franz Kafka’s The Metamorphosis , but with the usual sense of humor and tenderness that movies from the popular Disney / Pixar catalog usually display.
