Pixar’s Joyfully Weird Anime-Inspired Movie Blu-ray and DVD Edition turn red arrives May 3, and the package includes some surprisingly substantial deleted scenes. As usual for Pixar films, turn red clearly underwent significant story changes during its years of development. The deleted scenes, voiced by the actors and expanded through to the animatic scene, show some of the first drastically different story directions that director Domee Shi and co-writer Julia Cho took.

Polygon has an exclusive reveal about one such scene, a planned sequence where protagonist Meilin Lee (Rosalie Chiang) allegedly ran for class president against her obnoxious school rival, Tyler Nguyen-Baker (Tristan Allerick Chen). . As shown in the full four-minute version of this clip from the Blu-ray, this scene allegedly takes place after Mei first learns that she is the last of the line of Lee women who transform into giant red pandas. when they feel strong emotions. As Tyler lures her in and publicly taunts her, she risks exposing her panda transformation to her entire class for the first time.

Note that in this scene she wears her junior power costume with the exaggerated shoulder pads – the same costume she wears in the finished film for her presentation to her parents about why she should be allowed to attend a concert. 4*Town, the boy band she and her four best friends are all obsessed with.

In the full clip, however, Mei ends up throwing caution to the winds when Tyler repeatedly mocks 4*Town as a terrible bunch of trash, and she deliberately transforms into a giant panda to attack him, as her friends desperately try to hold her back. The full cutscene would have changed the tone of the movie somewhat, with a fart joke, more childish insults, and heightened emotion (Mei mocks Tyler here for “missing the bio,” because he gets a single B -), and Mei deliberately sets out to use her panda power to assault someone in public.

But the scene would also have provided more setup for the Mei/Tyler rivalry that unfolds throughout the film, and for the eventual reveal of how Tyler really feels about 4*Town. Like so many deleted scenes, it feels inessential to the point where cutting it makes sense, but it’s also a fun look at an alternate path for the story and a different sense of character development.

turn red will be available for digital rental on April 26, and the Blu-ray/DVD set will be available on May 3.
