One of the most successful musical artists in the country, Anne-Marie can next be heard lending her indelible vocal talents to the world of Pixar, with a starring – and funny – role in their latest production Turning Red. To mark the film’s release this weekend, we had the pleasure of speaking to the star, as we discussed her experience doing her very first voiceover in an animation. She speaks about being a teenager and what her obsessions were at that age, and what advice she has to youngsters going through the challenging time that is adolescence. She also speaks about meeting her idols, and what it means to her to be starring in a (Pixar!) movie.
Watch the full interview with Anne-Marie here:
Mei Lee (voice of Rosalie Chiang) is a confident, dorky 13-year-old torn between staying her mother’s dutiful daughter and the chaos of adolescence. Her protective, if not slightly overbearing mother, Ming (voice of Sandra Oh), is never far from her daughter – an unfortunate reality for the teenager. And as if changes to her interests, relationships and body weren’t enough, whenever she gets too excited (which is practically ALWAYS), she “poofs” into a giant red panda.
Turning Red launches on Disney+ on March 11th
