Finally got to finish watching this movie. I honestly kept forgetting to go back and watch the last half. Dang wedding getting in my way!

Here we follow Meilin who just turned 13. After turning 13 she finds herself turning into a giant red panda whenever she gets too excited. 

I adore red pandas so I was so excited to see them get some love here!

Plus what a fun coming-to-age story! I loved it so much! So dang cute. I'll admit I had a couple tears during a certain scene. 

This had all the feels. There are lots of laughs, sadness, joy, anger, and the feeling of wanting to dance! I would've LOVED to be friends with these guys when I was 13. 

That ending was perfect.

People are all mad about them insinuating that Meilin getting her period. Like chillax. Little kids and babies won't get adult humor or insinuations. They will be distracted by the huge red panda! People need to relax and grow up. 

In the end, I loved this film!! Def worth the watch. 5 stars from me.

I think my daughter and I are the only two who didn't love this movie. *shrugs* I'm glad so many are enjoying it, tho!
