Are you looking for a fun movie to watch tonight or this weekend for your family movie-night?  If you haven't seen it already on Disney+, or even if you have, I highly recommend watching Turning Red with your family.  We watched this movie when it first released to Disney+, but have been eagerly awaiting for the digital release of this movie, so that they can watch this at their grandparents who don't have Disney+, as well as enjoy all the super fun and cool bonus content including deleted scenes, featurettes and more.

Don't worry I am not going to bore you with an in-depth review of the movie, as you have probably already seen the trailer or snippets here and there thanks to your kids. My girls started watching the trailer over and over again when it first released, and already had many of the songs memorized before we watched the movie for the first time.  And, once we saw the movie, they both had all the dialogue down and were reciting the lines for the second and consecutive viewings. Instead, I wanted to take this time to share the movie trailer in case you haven't seen it and are looking for a new movie to share with your whole family this weekend, as well as make you aware of the great never been seen bonus content you get when you buy the Digital version of Turning Red, which is available now, and will be hitting store shelves on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-Ray, and DVD on May 3rd. And, if you have Disney+, you can view Turning Red now, too!

Here is more about Turning Red, including all the information about the bonus content and the official movie trailer.  Can't wait to hear your thoughts on this hit movie that is a favorite in our house.  We are planning to watch it again tonight, and I expect a few impromptu dance parties and sing-alongs to break out.  Can't wait!

Film Synopsis

In Disney and Pixar’s Turning Red, confident, dorky 13-year-old Mei must balance being a dutiful daughter with the chaos of adolescence. Her slightly overbearing mom is never far from her daughter.
