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.
