Sandra Oh will play alongside Rosalie Chiang as her 13-year-old child Mei Lee who, already struggling in her puberty stage, turns to be a red panda when she’s at the peak of her emotions.
Set in the 2000s, Mei will get obsessed with a boy band called 4*Town, one which Sandra as Ming will be against. Domee Shi, also known for her famous works “Inside Out”, “Bao”, and “Incredibles 2”, will direct the animated film. As documented by Digital Spy, the director pointed out that boy bands were the first step into the world of boys for a lot of girls that age.
To produce the boy band’s three songs are the multi-Grammy awarded Billie Eilish with her producer brother Finneas O’Connel which will be heard next year as the film hits the cinemas.
