Finneas will also lend his vocals to the project, performing and singing as one of five band members alongside Jordan Fisher, Grayson Villanueva, Josh Levi and Topher Ngo.

Pixar’s latest film tells the story of Mei Lee, played by Rosalie Chiang, and her journey of self-acceptance set in motion after she discovers that she spontaneously and uncontrollably transforms into a huge red panda when she gets emotional. Mei struggles with internal conflict as well as conflict with her mother, voiced by Sandra Oh.
That’s where the boy band comes in: “We needed our character Mei to be obsessed with something her mother wouldn’t approve of,” said turn red director Domee Shi at Variety. “Boy bands were the first step into the boy world for a lot of girls that age. The guys were all super handsome, polite, sweet and loving, and they had a way of bringing girls and their best friends together. plus, I thought it would be really cool to create an animated boy band.
