Destination Toronto is celebrating the release of Disney and Pixar’s “Turning Red,” streaming March 11 only on Disney+, with a sweepstakes to visit the city.
“Turning Red,” the first solely female directed Disney and Pixar feature film, tells the story of Meilin Lee (voice of Rosalie Chiang), a confident, dorky teenager, living in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, and showcases key landmarks and elements of the city.
The film’s Oscar-award winning director Domee Shi is also a Toronto native.
“‘Turning Red’ tells the universal theme of the awkward and cringey moments of puberty with a culturally specific paint brush that is Mei, a Chinese Canadian living in Toronto’s Chinatown”, says Shi. “At the end of the day, we’re all just trying to figure out our furry messes.”
In honor of the film, Destination Toronto is giving one Canadian family (excluding QC) and one American family the chance to win a trip for four to Toronto to experience the vibrancy and excitement of the city for themselves. The sweepstakes is open through March 27, 2022.
“‘Turning Red’ shines a bright spotlight on Toronto. More than just the setting for the film, the city comes to life as a character full of vibrancy, iconic locations and local flavor,” said Scott Beck, President and CEO of Destination Toronto. “‘Turning Red’ is an opportunity for potential travelers of all ages to get a taste of Toronto and fuel their desire for more.”
