Pixar is putting the finishing touches on its new upcoming short, titled Bao, which will be attached to Incredibles 2. The short is directed by Domme Shi and tells the story of woman who befriends a dumpling which miraculously comes alive.
“The seven-and-a-half-minute short is a culinary fable about a Chinese-Canadian woman suffering from the depression of an empty nest, who gets a second shot at motherhood when one of her handmade dumplings comes alive.” Reads the synopsis published by EW along with a first look photo.
Bao will undoubtedly appeal to a wide audience, especially the Chinese community. The dumplings are a staple food in the community; however we think that most of us will never look at a Bao the same way again after this unique animated short.
Bao will be attached to Incredibles 2, which arrives in cinemas in mid-June 2018.
