Disney & Pixar's Turning Red DVD 
About this deal
In the calendar scene, Jin points out that May 25th is the red full moon day. This is a reference to the film being Pixar’s 25th feature film. The moon on May 25, 2002, wasn't actually a red moon. It was actually a Waxing Gibbous with illumination by the Sun at 99%, as the following night on May 26th was a full moon with a lunar eclipse at 7:51 p.m. in Toronto.
It is also a sneaky easter egg to the Toronto Blue Jays baseball team which plays its home games at what is now Rogers Centre. Egan, Toussaint (March 8, 2022).

While both critics and audiences liked the film, many people (parents specifically) criticized the movie for being inappropriate, even stating that the film is telling viewers to disobey their parents. Crew and cast members of the movie eventually spoke up on the case. Lead voice actor Rosalie Chiang said the film was meant to appeal to all: "This is a coming of age film, everyone goes through this change."In 2017, Pixar hired Chiang to provide scratch vocals to support the development of the film.  Chiang, then only 12 years old, was selected in part because she was a local child actor conveniently based in nearby Fremont, which is only about 35 miles (56km) from Pixar's Emeryville headquarters.  After two years of development, Shi and Collins reached the point where the film was "solid" enough to start casting professional voice actors.  Despite listening to various auditions, the two realized they had already fallen in love with Chiang's scratch vocals and could not envision anyone else playing Mei.  They escalated the issue to Pixar chief creative officer Pete Docter, who personally approved the casting of Chiang in the film's lead role.
