Disney Pixar Short Film Bao

In Bao, an aging Chinese mom suffering from empty nest syndrome gets another chance at motherhood when one of her dumplings springs to life as a lively, giggly dumpling boy. Mom excitedly welcomes this new bundle of joy into her life, but Dumpling starts growing up fast, and Mom must come to the bittersweet revelation that nothing stays cute and small forever. 

This short film from Pixar Animation Studios and director Domee Shi explores the ups and downs of the parent-child relationship through the colorful, rich, and tasty lens of the Chinese immigrant community in Canada. 

Bad is available on The Pixar Short Films Collection: Volume 3 on Digital, Movies Anywhere, and Blu-ray.

Pixar has released a short clip for their adorable new animated short, Bao, which will be debuting in front of Incredibles 2 when the movie opens in theaters on June 15. 

The seven-and-a-half minute short is 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. The story is written by Domee Shi, who will be the first female short director in Pixar’s entire history.

The title Bao carries a double meaning. Domee Shi explains that, “The word ‘bao’ actually means two things in Chinese: Said one way, it means steamed bun. Said another, it means something precious. A treasure.” Shi’s mother, Ningsha Zhong helped her daughter as a cultural consultant on the film, giving the crew up close demos on how to make dumplings.
