Bao is the newest Pixar Short film that shows in front of Disney Pixar’s Incredibles 2 in theaters everywhere June 15th. Created by Director Domee Shi & Producer Becky Neiman Post who by the way is the FIRST female Pixar Short film Director. Congratulations Domee Shi for setting the first stone down for many other female directors.
In Disney•Pixar’s all-new short “Bao,” director Domee Shi explores parenthood, empty-nest syndrome and food—lots of food. When an aging Chinese mom crafts a dumpling that springs to life as a lively, giggly dumpling boy, Mom happily jumps at a second chance at motherhood. But Mom’s newfound happiness is short-lived when her precious dumpling insists on growing up.
