The latest offering from Disney/Pixar, Turning Red, will follow its predecessors Luca, and Soul, by debuting directly on Disney+.

The trailer for Turning Red have been playing in theaters — oddly, ahead of the very different, adult-themed action film The King’s Man, which was produced by Disney-owned 20th Century Studios. However, it seems uncertainty about the COVID-19 Omicron variant has ultimately led execs to decide the movie won’t have a theatrical bow after all.

Turning Red centers on a little girl named Mei — indeed, the preview has fun with *NSYNC‘s “It’s Gonna Be Me” — who turns into a magical, giant red panda when she gets flustered.
