First 30-Second Clip of 'Bao' Released - Watch the Moment a Tiny Dumpling Springs to Life [UPDATED]


Pixar's latest short, Bao is set to release alongside Incredibles 2 on June 15, 2018. The 8-minute short film (Pixar's longest to date) is written and directed by, Domee Shi, (Pixar's first Female-directed Short Film) and focuses on the ups and downs of the parent-child relationship through the colorful, rich, and tasty lens of the Chinese immigrant community in Canada. The official short film synopsis reads:

An empty-nesting Chinese mom gets another chance at motherhood when one of her dumplings springs to life. But she must come to terms with the bittersweet revelation that nothing stays cute and small forever.


Today, Pixar shared via social media a quick 30-second clip of Bao, which is sure to tug at the emotional heartstrings of every parent as the theme of the film centers around "another chance". The clip showcases the moment a dumpling springs to life in what is sure to be a touching film based on the bond of both parent and child.

UPDATED - Along with the short clip, Pixar also released a wonderful poster (see below) for the short film.

In a recent EW interview, director Domee Shi noted, "Often times it felt like my mom would treat me like a precious little dumpling, wanting to make sure I was safe, that I didn’t go out late, all that stuff", Shi tells EW. "I just wanted to create this magical, modern-day fairy tale, kind of like a Chinese Gingerbread Man story. The word ‘bao’ actually means two things in Chinese: Said one way, it means steamed bun. Said another, it means something precious. A treasure.



Bao will have its world premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival on April 21, 2018.
