turns red Just put a music video for “1 True Love” on social media. On Twitter, YouTube and Disney+, you can watch 4*Town bring out the amazing sausage in the animated feature. Fans couldn’t get enough of the Toronto set when the movie premiered on the platform earlier this year. Inspired by the lyrical groups of the early 2000s, Dom Shi created a vision of the popular music of the time. Viewers clearly became attached to 4*Town and the vocal style of the guys who brought the group to life. Finneas, Jordan Fisher, Josh Levi, Topher Ngo, and Grayson Villeneuve all sing as if their lives depended on it. It’s exhilarating stuff and you can watch the whole thing online right now. Shea spoke to Thrillest about getting the band together.
“But I think the name 4*TOWN was probably a combination of O-Town, and then I don’t even know if most people know that there’s a Toronto boy band called b4-4 that I think only teens in Toronto know about. I guess it’s like O-Town and b4-4 combined with *NSYNC to create 4 *TOWN,” she said. “I’ve been looking up b4-4 lately because I haven’t heard their songs in forever. The lyrics are so raunchy, but they’re so young and sweet. One of their songs is called ‘Get Down’ and the chorus is literally, ‘If you hurt me, I’ll put you down.'” I just remember specifying That and my mom, “What do you say?”
4⭐ Towne + Tyler = 4 in all ❤️

Oh My Disney December 28, 2022
The final battle section of the movie was an internet hit. Comicbook.com’s Gina Anderson spoke to the creative team about how the big boy moment came together. She pushed for a massive Kaiju fight as part of the finale and got her wish.
“We always knew we wanted a plus-size teenage mom/daughter that would fight for the ages. We wanted this to be our third act,” Shi revealed. We wanted the whole movie to eventually culminate into these two characters in such a big, amazing Kaiju battle way. We didn’t know where he was going to be, or how we were going to get there. Then in the end, he landed at the 4Town concert and the idea was, oh, how can we discern Mei’s embarrassment From a convenience store. How do we get around that? Oh, what if her mother humiliates her in front of her idols?”
Here’s what Disney has to say about the animation’s success: “Young actress Rosalie Chiang lends her voice to Mei Li, a 13-year-old girl who suddenly ‘deforms’ and turns into a giant red panda when she gets too excited (which is always practical). Sandra Oh voices About Mei Li’s protective, if a little overbearing mom, Ming, who isn’t far from her daughter–an unfortunate reality of adolescence. Directed by Shi and produced by Lindsey Collins, Disney and Pixar’s “Turning Red” is now streaming exclusively on Disney+.
