Pixar Just Teased Their Next Animated Short, And The Internet Is Having Feels

By Jonna Ivin-Patton

This summer when audiences go to the theater to see Incredibles 2, they will receive an extra gift with a short film called Bao. It is the first short by Pixar directed by a woman, Domee Shi. Bao tells the story of of a Chinese-Canadian woman going through a bout of depression from empty nest. The seven-and-a-half minute film explores her second chance at motherhood when one of her handmade dumplings comes to life. 

 

The film isn't out yet, but already people are looking forward to it. Shi explained the attraction:

It felt like a really universally appealing story that a lot of people could identify with. We got a ton of e-mails from people identifying with the mom character, or the dumpling character, saying, ‘Wait, that’s me,’ or ‘That’s my parents,’ or ‘I’m dealing with this right now.’

If Twitter's reaction is a predictor, Bao is sure to be a hit.
