"Disney/Pixar are understandably proud of what Turning Red represents, but questions remain. Why has it taken 25 movies for Pixar to get to this point? Isn't it depressing that [Domee] Shi came to be the first solely credited female Pixar director only because Brave's Brenda Chapman was unceremoniously dumped from the 2012 film midway through its production? And isn't it strange that Turning Red has been shunted to Disney+ rather than getting a cinema release?"
