The film follows 13-year-old Mei and her obsession with the boy band and is set in the early 2000s.
Director Domee Shi said: “We needed our character Mei to be obsessed with something that her mom would not approve of.
"Boy bands were the first step into the world of boys for a lot of girls that age.
"The guys were all super pretty, polished, soft and loving, and they had of a way of bringing girls and their besties together.
"Plus, I thought it’d be really cool to create an animated boy band.”
The voice cast includes Rosalie Chiang and Sandra Oh as Mei and her mother Ming, respectively.
