You are aware that the number of contaminations is currently very high, and that this creates great uncertainty as to the organization of shows and the opening of cinemas. With Spider-Man No Way Home, then Encanto to a lesser extent, Disney has been able to attract audiences to theaters. However, and while the industry thought it was moving towards a return to “normal”, the Omicron variant is sowing the seeds of doubt.
Disney anticipates the thing, and adapts according to the film. This will in particular be the case Red Alert, the next animated film from Pixar studios, and which particularly targets a family audience. Expected on March 11, the new production of the studios will not go through the cinema box to disembark directly on Disney +. Like Luca and of Drunk, Red Alert will be directly available in the catalog, without subscribers having to pay an additional cost. Unsurprisingly, Disney says this decision was taken due to the epidemic resumption, especially in the United States. Kareem Daniel, president of Disney’s Media and Entertainment Distribution division, said in a dedicated statement:
Given the delayed box office recovery, especially for family films, flexibility remains at the heart of our distribution decisions.
Red alert is a film that deal with changes in adolescence. We will find Mei Lee, a 13-year-old girl who wants to do everything right, while facing this complex period of life and a very protective mother. Problem, every time she finds herself overwhelmed by her emotions, she instantly transforms into a huge red panda. 25th feature film from Pixar studios, Red Alert is directed by Domee Shi and co-written by Julia Cho. Mei Lee will be voiced in original version by Rosalie Chiand, while the character of Ming Lee will be played by Sandra Oh.
