Priya is a character from Turning Red, a 2022 American computer-animated coming-of-age fantasy comedy film produced by Pixar Animation Studios and distributed by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures. The character is voiced by Maitreyi Ramakrishnan.
Priya is the tritagonist of Turning Red. She is Mei's Indo-Canadian friend who is excitable despite her deadpan voice and expressions.
Priya is an average height, Indian-Canadian preteen with brown eyes, and curly, dark brown hair. She wears navy glasses with mini gold hoop earrings and a gold nose piercing. Her clothing consists of a stripy yellow shirt with a small zipper on the top of it, baggy pants that feature pockets and grey sneakers that have blue lacings. She also wears a grayish-yellow watch on her right arm and a rainbow friendship bracelet on the left.
Set in Toronto between 2002 and 2003, Turning Red centers around the dorky Meilin "Mei" Lee, a confident 13-year-old Chinese-Canadian who is torn between staying her mother's dutiful daughter and the chaos of adolescence. However, one morning, after she has a nightmare, she is horrified to discover that she has turned into a giant red panda, later learning that her ancestors have a shared history with the species. Whenever she gets too excited or stressed, she "poofs" into the red panda time and time again.
