The Relatability of Pixar’s Turning Red

Third film in a row, the last original Pixar film. blushes bypassed theaters and were sent straight to Disney+. While it’s disappointing that yet another Pixar project lacks the prestige of a theatrical run, the move has allowed more people to see the film faster, and there have been several topics of discussion on social media since its release.

One complaint that came up frequently online was that the film was not «relevant» enough to be watched by a general audience compared to other Pixar films. This is especially strange considering blushes is one of the few Pixar films where humans are the protagonists, and – with the exception of the giant red panda – most of the situations the characters find themselves in could very well happen in everyday life. Thus, this complaint that you do not belong to her is completely unjustified when viewed under a microscope.

Although many Pixar films feature non-human characters, most of their main characters are male, and the plots often revolve around their relationships with other male characters. Remember the rivalry between Woody and Buzz Lightyear, which turned into friendship in History of toys franchise, Remy helps Linguini find love in Ratatouilleand the father-son relationship between Marlin and Nemo in Finding Nemo. It is the latter that actually highlights the problem with these comments about blushes because at its core, the film is about a mother-daughter relationship, the female equivalent of a father-son bond. Both talk about kids and parents coping with conflict and eventually strengthening their relationship, but only one gets comments about a perceived lack of intimacy.

People of color and non-male audience members were, in a sense, equipped to learn to see themselves even in media lacking non-white male characters. The ingrained idea is that stories about white people and men are for everyone, and stories about underrepresented groups in the media are «niche». So when blushes – the story of a female-majority Asian-Canadian family hitting the world, many people who don’t fit into any of those groups don’t know what to do about it. It’s like a lot of them can’t figure out how to identify with characters that don’t look like themselves.

Of course, the culture represented in blushes different from what many people have grown up with. However, if these people learned to go beyond physical characteristics when it comes to character relationships, they would see that they have more in common with main character Meiling Li than they think. Who hasn’t been embarrassed by their parents, who hasn’t been nervous about what was considered «obscene» or experienced family drama?

As well as Finding Nemoviewers were never fish living in the ocean, the interpersonal experiences depicted in blushes universal, even if there are no specifics. It is important to see images of foreign cultures in the media, as they not only contribute to a deeper understanding of the different people in our world, but also help viewers to see that people are not as different from each other as it might seem at first glance. believe.
