Disney has announced that the latest Pixar animated film, “Turning Red” is the #1 film premiere on Disney+ globally to date, based on the number of hours watched in the first three days, beating out other titles such as “Soul” and “Luca”.

Thank you to all of the fans around the world who embraced their panda and made Disney and Pixar’s #TurningRed the #1 film premiere on #DisneyPlus around the world!

Disney and Pixar’s “Turning Red” introduces Mei Lee (voice of Rosalie Chiang), 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!

Recently it was revealed by Samba TV, 2.5 million US households watched “Turning Red” over the opening weekend, but this only takes into account a limited number of televisions and doesn’t count mobile devices or international viewings.
