I can't remember why at the moment but just last week I was scouring the Internet to find a place where I could (legally) watch and share Bao, the amazing Pixar short that played before The Incredibles 2 when it was released this past summer in theaters.
Funny enough, Disney & Pixar have posted it to YouTube as of yesterday but it's only going to be out there for a limited time.
The thought it that they are attempting to drum up some more buzz and get the short in front of more viewers leading up to the Oscars in 2019.
Anyways, it's amazing! It'll make you laugh, it'll tug at your heart strings, it's darn near a masterpiece.
Here's the description:
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.
So share it and enjoy it FAST, while it's still available because it will only be posted for a limited time!
